We’re looking for a highly skilled and self-motivated production leader to continue to mature communication and cross-org collaboration for our Platforms group and beyond. In this role, you will work cross-functionally with engineering leadership, product management, and producers from other parts of the organization, helping to improve transparency, quality, and predictability in the development process while preserving Unity’s unique culture.

You will lead a team of Technical Producers, each embedded with one of the Platforms teams, to mature production practices throughout Platforms and paint a clear picture of strategy, goals, and progress to drive alignment within Platforms as well as our strategic partners and the rest of the organization.

As the ideal candidate, you ride the line between Helper and Leader, acting as a force multiplier for development teams. You are relationship-driven, and comfortable wearing multiple hats: connector, coach, reporter, translator, firefighter. You have a light-touch project management style, and a commitment to fostering a culture of individual empowerment, ownership, and trust. Your communication skills are impeccable, and you have an understanding of and appreciation for working across different cultures.

  • Collaborate with producers in other parts of the organization to support healthy platform development throughout Unity
  • Work closely with R&D support teams such as Release Management, Core Developer Services, etc. to help address problems of scale as Unity R&D continues to grow

Requirements

  • Extensive experience in software production / program management, working cross functionally within an engineering organization
  • A degree in business, project management, or a technical management field, or equivalent professional experience
  • Experience managing and mentoring producers / program managers directly
  • Experience working on enterprise-scale software
  • Familiarity with game development technologies across multiple platforms
  • Detail-oriented, organized and able to track complex requirements with many moving pieces
  • Experience guiding teams through a variety of project management styles - and a deep understanding about the strengths and shortcomings of different methodologies
  • Ability to manage change in an organization, working with the current of embedded habits
  • Ability to travel to remote teams occasionally

Bonus Points

  • PMO (Program Management Office) experience
  • Software engineering
  • Game development (Unity engine or otherwise)
  • Experience working with distributed teams across multiple time zones
  • Experience navigating strategic partnerships
  • Outstanding communication skills, both written and oral, to speak to a broad variety of internal and external stakeholders

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.
