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.


Sr. Software Engineer, Cloud Services
