Integrations & Networking Engineer, Labs

| Bellevue


Unity Labs’ Authoring Tools Group makes tools for augmented and virtual reality developers. You’ll be responsible for integration and networking on our Mixed and Augmented Reality Studio (MARS). MARS is a new tool that allows developers to create, visualize, and test against simulated real-world data directly in the editor. The goal is to help devs make cool games, interesting applications, and entire real-world multiple concurrently running spatial interfaces.

Your job entails working with the integrations lead to build out support for key partners that have interesting and useful real-world data, with a particular bent towards networking technologies: “AR Cloud” platforms, re-localization, matchmaking, database integration, and cloud pipelines, as well as computer vision information, geospatial data, depth sensors, and so on. MARS needs to help developers make sense of, and develop directly for, all of these kinds of data. This includes both hardware and software partners.

Integrations engineering is a key part of Unity’s goal to be the best possible realtime tool for all kinds of 3D creation. You’ll be helping to define and improve quick iteration and world simulation for augmented reality tools today, and spatial computing over the next decades.

Networking in particular is a key piece of the mixed reality future: multi-user and multi-platform shared spaces and interactions, persistent virtual objects, and streaming content will all be first-class citizens of MARS’ workflow and functionality. 

Labs’ Authoring Tools Group is a diverse team of passionate XR developers and thinkers. We care deeply about helping developers be able to make apps that can truly run in the real world. In joining the team, you’ll be helping to move the entire industry forward towards real ubiquitous spatial computing. 

This role may involve some amount of travel to other offices, though we are happy to work with your schedule and responsibilities. Additionally, this role is a product development role, not a prototyping or research position. 

Responsibilities

  • Work under the MARS integrations lead and alongside partner developers to support new types of network & platform data in MARS
  • Work with the core Unity platforms integration team on related partner projects, like the XR SDK and AR Foundation
  • Work alongside the frontend and backend teams to help define and surface new concepts for Unity developers 

Requirements

  • Unity experience required, either as a user or an extensions developer
  • Experience with networking techniques and technologies in and out of the Unity ecosystem
  • Demonstrated interest in XR, either through professional experience or personal projects 
  • Familiarity or professional experience in C#, and C++
  • Experience shipping and maintaining real products 

Bonus points

  • Previous work experience in AR hardware company or world data provider is a significant plus
  • Have true passion for, and enjoyment of, spatial computing 
  • Related mixed reality development, personal or professional, is a significant bonus
  • Strong communication skills are useful as we often give talks across Labs, both internally and externally
  • Experience with demos and prototyping

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.

Casey

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.

Tom

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.
