12 devs in 12 months: Marie Cauchon
To launch the celebrations marking our 15th anniversary, we wanted to introduce studio employees in an original way. People that are not usually under the spotlight, but that deserve to be known for their impact on the games we create. From that idea, we created the 12 Devs in 12 Months initiative. Until the end of 2020, you will get to meet 12 talented and friendly developers.
This month, we’re introducing you to Marie Cauchon a precious member of our Marketing team here in Québec since 10 years.
WHAT’S YOUR GREATEST MEMORY AT UBI?

WHAT BROUGHT YOU INTO THE VIDEOGAME INDUSTRY?
