Software Engineer Interview

Software Engineer
Montreuil, Ile-de-France (France)

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Ubisoft in April 2012.

Interview Details Smooth, quick process.
2 rounds of interviews (one with HR, one with the team lead).
The HR interview was short (20-30 minutes) with the usual background and experience questions
The lead interview was mostly about past experience, with a quick technical test (2 pages of open source code to read, analyse and comment).

A lot of emphasis is put during the interview process on the fact that the temporary contract will likely be turned in a permanent one, eventually. After checking it's actually a rare occurrence, so get in only if a 18 months employment contract is acceptable to you.

Interview Question – I can't remember of any   Answer Question

Designer Interview

Designer
Bucharest (Romania)

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Ubisoft.

Interview Details I interviewed a long time ago - things surely changed in the meantime.
There are now tests involved and what they are after is a very trained, logical, structured person.
Make sure you built some mods, built some levels and understand the basics of game design - rules, sign&feedback, etc.
Search the internet for the Ubisoft Design Academy courses. I remember a Gamasutra article - that might help.

Interview Question – You will be asked to design something - so make sure your design patterns are clear and progressive.
If I might seem like i talk nonsense - welcome to the design world :)
  Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I had very little choice at that time and I got a small salary - but the journey was fun.

Game Tester Interview

Game Tester
Pune (India)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Ubisoft in January 2010.

Interview Details Right now the interview process has completely changed, previously they use to have skill test then 1 to 1 interview, but now they have canned the skill test & only take 1 to 1 interview, which i feel is incorrect.
QC manager doesnt know how to take interviews, during interview he will keep his both legs on the table and ask you all the questions....imagine that :(

Interview Questions

  • Difference between first person shooter & third person shooter ?   View Answer
  • Give reasons....why did a particular bug made it to a shipped title.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – fake negotiation, if you are experienced they say your experience will be consider after 6months, but actually they dont...they cheat on you.
