Unity is a multi-platform game engine that is used to create video games and applications for a multitude of devices. As many creators of real-time applications aim to generate complex, detailed and interesting environments, a key part of the real-time engine is a set of Environment workflows, enabling users to create realistic landscapes and environments for their games or applications. Emerging technologies such as machine learning, procedural generation, and data-oriented design are opening up new exciting opportunities for augmenting the creation workflow and achieving new levels of productivity for content creators.

We are looking for a UX Lead who can drive design strategy and execution for the Environment workflows area. You are an experienced design leader who’s successfully managed design teams and driven a strategic product area from early concept to release. You excel at dealing with ambiguity and facilitating a structured design process that leads to the best ideas and experience outcomes. You think in terms of systems and patterns and understand the importance of balancing relevance and consistency in your decision making. You possess a curious mind for learning new technology and a passion for exploring how it can be leveraged to create transformative user experiences. You are able to operate at all levels, from strategic thinking to the finest details of design. You are not afraid to get your hands dirty and sketch ideas and bring them to life via storyboards.

In this role, you will be part of Unity’s global Design team which is a diverse group of people who believe that the world is a better place with more creators in it and that excellence in design is crucial to the pursuit in getting there. You will work closely with other Unity Design leaders to define our UX vision, engender alignment and consistency, and deliver world-class experiences for our users.

An Insider's view of Unity Technologies

What are some social events your company does?

I think everybody loves the annual holiday party, and this past summer we had a company picnic that was a huge hit. My team is developing a robust events program of not only regular social functions, but also events that encourage wellness and community involvement! One of my personal favorites is the office yoga.


Workplace Experience

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Since joining Unity, the freedom and independence offered here has helped me grow tremendously. I’ve been able to work on the technologies that interest me, and work with those that have a lot of knowledge and background in the field.


XR Developer

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

I've found that creativity requires autonomy, trust, and clarity. Autonomy to define a problem and collaborate to find the best solution. Trust or "psychological safety" to ensure diverse perspectives are openly shared and considered. And clarity, so everyone knows at a high-level what success looks like and are working towards shared goals.


Head of Product Management, Cloud Services

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

One significant challenge we face is working with multiple web frameworks within the same website. Being a product of geographical separation as well as multiple acquisitions, our dashboard isn't as integrated as we would like. We work to maintain a balance between rewriting code and ensuring that we continue to deliver a high quality experience.
