Joveo CA

This is a Full-time position in Sherbrooke, QC posted May 7, 2022.

Job Description As a technical art director at Ubi Sherbrooke, you have the highest-level understanding of what our tech can or can’t do, on top of visibility of the project as a whole.

You’re responsible for providing expert insight, tools, and support to steer a game – and its creators – towards success.

Working with other directors early on, you discuss intentions before making any commitments.

You take into consideration not only measurable factors such as rendering, performance, and memory but also intangible ones like timing and momentum.

With this holistic view, you establish an actionable plan to bridge the gap between coming up with ideas and putting them into practice.

Though every day of development brings its own mix of both expected and unforeseen challenges, you never lose sight of the big picture.

As a strategic thinker and tactical planner, you balance short-term priorities with long-term goals, while consistently considering the future impacts of your choices.

Identify and analyze risks (engine, data, features, etc.).

Assess existing tools + occasionally design custom ones to support art pipelines and workflows & sustain the vision.

Meet with technical art team members to share information and updates, enforce standards, set benchmarks, give feedback, etc.

Resolve specific, complex, escalated issues & approve technical specifications.

Prepare post-mortems + recommend ways to evolve how we create and integrate graphic data.

Anticipate technological advancements and stay up to date on market trends to define our best practices + share them with our studios and the industry.

Participate in recruitment to build the technical art team & foster their growth.

Qualifications What you bring Around 7 years of art, technical art, or programming experience (or other relevant experience) + 3 years of leadership In-depth knowledge of game engines (e.G.
