What made you decide to apply for a role with us after your graduation?
Project Coordination Intern
Operations and Analytics Major at Singapore Management University (SMU)
“I applied for an internship back in 2017, it was daunting at first because I didn’t know much about video games and how they were made. However, after my brief stint I knew I had to head back because I enjoyed each and every day at work, there was never a mundane or ordinary day. Having worked with so many talented and driven individuals that love and want to sharpen their craft, I could not help but pursue a full-time job here.”
How was your experience like when you joined for the first time?
Level Design Assistant
Arts In Game Design at DIgipen
“It’s a rather fond memory. I remember being all dressed up and excitable on my first day, the HR brought me to meet my team who made sure I was comfortable before being made to dive into real work. I went through loads of documentations at first, and it was only during the second week that my manager came up to ask if I wanted to jump into some projects and I’ve never stopped since. My first project was Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, and I got to work on some really cool content along the river Thames and in the World War I Time Anomaly. It was pretty amazing seeing the final product and output of what I’ve created!”
What made you decide to continue your career with the studio!
Junior QA Engineer
Computer Science at National University of Singapore (NUS)
“I owe it to my mentors! They’ve always challenged me to develop difficult features that I thought were impossible but with their help, I managed to overcome everything in my way. Having these challenges made my time in Ubisoft more interesting and meaningful. There are also lots of great training programs here to improve on techniques for game development. A huge plus point for me? The annual internal Ubisoft Developer Conference where talented devs from 40 Ubisoft studios around the world gather to share their knowledge and new technology to ship the latest titles.”
Junior Concept Artist
The One Academy of Communication Design
“It’s great that the studio focuses on innovation and career development. Because of that, I’m often surrounded by supportive people who constantly guide me to reach my goals. The people here are genuinely caring and will go out of their way to offer help and advice. If I can summarize the experience here, it’ll be that it feels like family!”
