UI/UX Director

UI/UX - Novaquark - Montréal, Canada


Novaquark currently develops Dual Universe, an ambitious and continuous single-shard sandbox MMORPG. Taking place in a vast Sci-Fi universe, the game focuses on emergent gameplay with player-driven in-game economy, politics, trade, and warfare. Players can freely modify the voxel-based universe by creating structures, spaceships, or giant orbital stations, giving birth to empires and civilizations. The company developed several proprietary technologies like its innovative Continuous Single-Shard Cluster (CSSC) server solution, as well as a state-of-the-art voxel engine and procedural generation tools. Dual Universe successfully ran the 3rd largest worldwide Kickstarter campaign for a video game in 2016. Formed by veterans from Sony, Apple, Aldebaran Robotics and more, Novaquark is recruiting the best talents to help make Dual Universe a reality.

The UI/UX Expert/Director is responsible for the ease of play of the game: the strategy to ensure game ergonomics early on and then effectively respond to player feedback by relying on application projects, tools, accessibility and signs and feedback. We value a scientific approach to UX, inspired by neuroscience, cognitive psychology and computer science models. The candidate should be able to demonstrate a strong knowledge and understanding in these fields.

You will work in close collaboration with the game’s core team, the UI team, the level design team and the creative director.
