Deciding on a new job is never easy, especially when you're working in a competitive market such as the the video game industry. Montreal is known to be a hub for such companies and this makes the choice even harder. How do you find the right fit for you? Whether you're a recent grad, or a seasoned professional, finding that perfect job is, well, a job in itself. At least, it can really start to feel that way. Wouldn't it be nice if someone could just tell you about a really awesome video game studio that just so happens to be hiring?
Enter Ludia, a Montreal-based video game company that creates and distributes cross-platform digital games. They're the brains behind big-name games like Jurassic World™: The Game, Dragons: Rise of Berk, The Price Is Right™, and Family Feud ® & Friends 2, and you're in luck, because they're currently looking to add new members to their ever-growing team.
At Ludia, smaller teams mean that every member has a real impact on the game and its success. Imagine working for a company where your input really matters! Not only is the work at Ludia just flat-out cool, but they also have an awesome work environment, and let's be real, where you're working is just as important as what you're working on. There's an open office space, an award-winning lounge, inspiring brainstorm spaces, quiet rooms, and an all-around creative culture.
As with any good job, there are quite a few perks to working there too, including 4 weeks of vacation, catered lunches, free snacks, coffee and tea, an awesome health and wellness plan, annual health assessments and a free gym membership as of day 1. You'll also be able to enjoy:
- An annual, off-site conference with international speakers for its employees
- Free French or English lessons
- Flexible work hours and a family-friendly environment
- Fun Friday happy hour after work (every Friday!) and their own house beer on tap
- Tons of social activities
- An employee game room stocked with consoles and tons of video games, a Foosball, Ping-Pong and pool table
- Sponsored sports teams
- A game and book library
- On-site showers and bike racks
Ludia is looking for professionals in the gaming, artistic and IT sectors, as well as university or college students and graduates. There are opportunities for everything from 3D artists to game programmers to system administrators. If you’ve got talent, they want to hear from you!
This all sounds so amazing that I may just apply for a job myself. Now I'll just have to learn how to design and animate video games - that shouldn't take too long, right?
