Testimonials

It’s an incredible opportunity to be here at the start of Ubisoft Winnipeg, taking on new challenges and wearing many hats in order to create a pool of innovation that will benefit Ubisoft as a whole. Winnipeg is also a great place to raise my family, with welcoming neighbours and lots to do outdoors.

Nicolas, Associate Producer

Winnipeg’s a big city with a small-town attitude, which helps give the Ubisoft studio its personality. We have a great culture here that preserves everyone’s different way of thinking and coordinates that into a cohesive final product. Everyone’s pushing in the same direction — toward making game production easier — and that makes this studio critical to gaming overall.

Sky & Free, Senior Programmers

Since I was a kid, I dreamed of working in development, and Ubisoft Winnipeg is a life-changing opportunity for me. It’s a great environment that treats employees well and encourages us to improve ourselves. Our culture is still developing here and I love being part of that process — everyone’s opinion matters here.

Sergei, Tools Programmer

Hands down my favourite part of this studio is how much we collectively care about breaking down barriers for women and other minority groups in the tech industry — we have a shared mindset of equality and inclusion. It’s wonderful to show up to work every day feeling like you can be yourself and you can succeed if you put in the work.

Camy, Tools Programmer

World-Class Studio.
World-Class City.

You already have a home in Winnipeg. We chose this city for our one-of-a-kind studio because it’s a one-of-a kind place, where people from dozens of countries live and thrive in a vibrant culture that promotes work-life balance. There’s plenty of room for you and your family to grow — with affordable housing, welcoming communities, and great schools — so you can live like you never thought you could.

There’s a reason people call Winnipeg a big small town. You get all the amenities and benefits of a major metropolis, but everything’s a 20-minute drive away. There’s always something to do; indulge in the city’s vibrant Arts and Culture scene; clean your plate at a diverse range of restaurants from cultures around the globe; and, of course, join in the phenomenon that is the Winnipeg Jet’s fanbase.
