At Ubisoft Montreal’s User Research Lab, we contribute to creating the best gaming experiences by putting players – their behaviours, motivations, and more – at the centre of the design process.
Working hand in hand with production teams, we deliver in-depth player insights to guide decision-making, combining state-of-the-art qualitative and quantitative analysis through a variety of methodologies and data sources to do so.
As a Game Intelligence Analyst within the Lab, you’ll transform in-game data into meaningful insights that inform game creators and benefit our players.
As a trusted advisor of production teams, you’ll take an investigative approach to answer their questions. That means that after getting to the heart of their concerns, you’ll explore techniques to address them: manipulating and analyzing collected data to arrive at conclusions that inspire solutions.
Not only will you share facts and actionable suggestions, but you’ll also provide teams with new – and incredibly useful – information that leads to even more opportunities to deliver enriching experiences to players.

- Perform data design, analysis, mining, and source combining to draw observations, trends, and predictions
- Carry out in-depth studies to discover new, valuable insights that support strategy and guide decision-making.
- Translate your findings into visualizations and stories.
- Present results and recommendations + discuss action plans to implement them.
- Act as a project manager to coordinate production efforts and resources for tracking integration.
- Help build and improve data tools in partnership with other service teams.
- Participate in creating new processes and optimizing existing ones.
What you bring
- Experience in analysis approaches that involve assessing structured and unstructured data (or other relevant experience)
- Data literacy skills + experience using Tableau
- Proficiency in SQLand Python programming
- Effective cross-departmental communication: you can interact with all disciplines + break down complex information for various audiences
