Ubisoft Ivory Tower

Ubisoft est le 3ème éditeur indépendant de jeux vidéo au monde avec plus de 15 franchises dépassant le million d'unités vendues (Rayman, Assassin's Creed, Just Dance, Watch Dogs, Tom Clancy, Far Cry, Rainbow Six Siege, etc.).
La stratégie du groupe s'articule autour de trois axes : des marques fortes, une implantation internationale dans plus d'une trentaine de pays, et surtout des équipes talentueuses.

Nos univers créatifs dépassent le cadre des jeux vidéo. Ubisoft développe une série télévisée dédiée aux Lapins Crétins, des films, des parcs à thème, des expositions... Le groupe crée et distribue également des BDs, romans, jeux de plateaux, figurines, tee-shirts, etc.

Le succès d'Ubisoft repose avant tout sur la force créative de plus de 16 000 collaborateurs, experts dans une grande variété de métiers : depuis ceux liés à la création des jeux vidéos, jusqu'à ceux consacrés à leur vente, en passant par toutes les fonctions corporate (Finance, RH, Communication...).
