12 devs in 12 months: Marie-Eve Bolduc
To celebrate 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 members of our team.
This month, we’re introducing you to Marie-Eve Bolduc, Talent development advisor, here at Ubisoft Québec.
WHAT’S YOUR GREATEST MEMORY AT UBI?
I would say my first day at Ubisoft Québec. That day, I joined the company I dreamed of working for (sounds cliché, but it’s true). It was the start of a great adventure that continues today.
There’s also the time we celebrated when we hit 100 employees. It was a really good time and since then the team has only grown.
WHAT BROUGHT YOU INTO THE VIDEOGAME INDUSTRY?
The creative and dynamic environment. It is an industry in which we always have to rethink the ways of doing things.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE PROJECT YOU’VE WORKED ON?
To contribute to the opening of the studio. It was a lot of work, but so exciting.
15 YEARS, IT FLIES BY! WHAT WERE YOU DOING IN 2005?
In 2005, I left my job as a human resources consultant in a large IT company to realize my dream of working at Ubisoft.
WHAT GETS YOU OUT OF BED IN THE MORNING?
Passionate people and daily challenges.
UBISOFT QUÉBEC WOULD’T BE UBISOFT QUÉBEC WITHOUT…
The amazing people who work here.
NAME A COLLEAGUE THAT INSPIRES YOU. WHY?
Véronique Lessard. Always enthusiastic, confident and ready to take on the impossible.
WHAT IS THE MOST REWARDING THING ABOUT YOUR JOB?
To see people develop their knowledge.
