The Unity Spotlight Team in Bellevue is looking for a Senior Software Engineer to work closely with our internal Data-Oriented Design (DOTS) team and external customers.  You will work closely with internal and external teams to create amazing games that will demonstrate the power and performance of DOTS to the industry.  You will work with many different teams so you should enjoy meeting new people. This is a great opportunity to work with cutting-edge Unity DOTS technology and contribute to high-quality projects without being tied to the 2-3 year development cycles that typically involves.

You would be working on a brand-new, highly modularized architecture based around data-oriented design principles where scalability lives alongside performance.  Areas of focus would include core runtime features, asset optimization, editor UI and workflows. Your game design experience will be leveraged as you work in embedded and remote teams with external game developers. You would have an opportunity to work on compression technology, compiler optimizations, data design and other technology innovations to drive game experiences and tools development at Unity.

You have experienced the practical challenges of developing and shipping games. You have ideas and opinions on how features such as rendering, physics, UI, multiplayer networking, or animation should be designed and implemented, but you’re willing to work with others to build consensus around your designs. You want the opportunity to experiment and implement these ideas and guide the implementation of these new Unity features in AAA games worldwide. 

You will collaborate with the core Unity engineering team in our global offices as well as with external development studios. You will write C++ in the Unity engine, C# in the scripting layer, and use a handful of additional technologies that come with the platforms that we support — such as PC, Mac, iOS, Android, Web, and Consoles.

Responsibilities

  • Democratize data oriented programming in the Unity game engine
  • Develop tools, real time editing and perform engine programming
  • Work closely with external teams to understand the challenges they face with the new DOTS features and create solutions for them
  • Create new solutions that are oriented around customer needs and work with internal development teams to implement these solutions in the Unity engine and packages
  • Write code in C++ in the Unity Engine and C# in Scripting layer
  • Organize cross department/group teams to successfully solve internal and customer problems

Requirements

  • Degree in computer science, game development, engineering or equivalent experience
  • Low-level skills such as SPU /  DMA / shader / assembly language knowledge
  • Strong knowledge of math and computational complexity
  • Cross programming experience in games or middleware development at a senior/lead level
  • AAA game development experience with multiple titles shipped on PC and/or Console

Bonus Points

  • Experience with Unity, Unreal, CryEngine or other 3D game engines
  • Strong multi-threaded programming skills

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

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

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.

Brandi

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.
