Our brand new office is located in the heart of downtown Bellevue, where we are surrounded by a variety of shops, restaurants, and entertainment.

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

What projects are you most excited about?

Recently my team was awarded a Technical Emmy for our work on 3 film shorts called Baymax Dreams, which was a huge accomplishment. Right now, I'm excited to be working on XR products for the film and entertainment industry that will come to life soon.


Producer, Made with Unity

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

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.
