Ubisoft's Graduate Program is looking for more budding developers to pay

New, 13 comments

Ubisoft is looking for "aspiring developers" for the second year of its Graduate Program, which lets recent college graduates gain industry experience, according to a post on the Ubisoft blog.

The program is designed, in part, to give the recently degreed the opportunity to work on games, so they can gain the experience often used as a prerequisite on applications.

"We give our graduates responsibilities within specific projects that we know will help them learn faster," said Clémence Bataille, the project manager for the Ubisoft Graduate Program. "Our goal is that graduates accumulate four years of experience in the space of two years. At the end of the program, they will be armed with considerable knowledge of the video games sector and the company, and will be able to take on the challenges of new and exciting responsibilities within Ubisoft."

Thirteen of Ubisoft's worldwide studios will participate, and the developer of franchises like Assassin's Creed, Rayman and Far Cry will pay those accepted.

"As employees to the firm, you will be paid a salary," Bataille said. "Salary will be adapted to each local market, competitive offer."

Those holding a bachelor's or master's degree in engineering or computer science and with less than a year of professional experience interested in applying for positions in gameplay programming, online programming and project management can do so at the Ubisoft Graduate Program's official site.

Ubisoft announced the program in February 2014, when it was designed for a class of 25 graduates.
