Ubisoft has announced today that the publisher plans to add 500 jobs to its Quebec offices by 2020, bringing the staff to 3500. These jobs are thanks to the "concentration of American operations for online games" initiative in Montreal.

"Today's announcement allows us to anticipate the growth of our future needs with the main objective of strengthening proximity with our players and creating value for them."
The jobs include community and network management specialists, business intelligence analysts, mathematicians, telemetry experts, systems operators, and monetization and interactive marketing specialists. All of them are aimed at supporting the next-generation of games.
