We’re looking for a highly skilled and self-motivated technical program management leader to scale communication and collaboration across R&D. In this role, you will work cross-functionally with technical program managers, engineering leadership, and product management from across the organization, helping to improve transparency, quality, and predictability in the development process while preserving Unity’s unique culture. R&D is in a period of transformation for scale, and this role is key to our success.

You will lead a team of technical program & project managers, with the shared mission of providing high level visibility, evangelizing for shared best practices, and generally scaling how we plan and execute against goals. As R&D teams are broadly distributed through North America, Europe, and beyond, some international travel is to be expected.

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.

Responsibilities

  • Lead, support, and grow a team of technical project/program managers as we scale and mature operations within R&D
  • Act as a collaborative agent for program management, maintaining and maturing clear artifacts to facilitate top-level tracking against R&D goals
  • Design and implement planning practices that scale across R&D in a way that embraces team autonomy
  • Circulate regular progress updates, keeping the organization oriented in the same direction as we move through the development cycle
  • Work closely with stakeholder teams such as Support, Release Engineering, Documentation, etc. to help address challenges of scale as Unity R&D continues to grow
  • Internalize and evangelize Unity’s core values: Users first. Best ideas win. In it together. Go BOLD

Requirements

  • Extensive experience in software production / project management, including hands-on experience with one or more scaled agile methodologies
  • Outstanding communication skills, both written and oral, to speak to a broad audience, including executive leadership
  • Experience managing and mentoring project / program managers directly
  • Ability to gracefully manage change in an organization, working with the current of embedded habits rather than fighting against it
  • Experience with enterprise-scale software development
  • Working with distributed teams across time zones
  • Demonstrate a proactive, curious mindset. Be willing to ask questions, and be willing to dig for your own answers as well

Bonus Points

  • Have led an engineering organization through a period of heavy change/growth
  • Game development experience (Unity engine or otherwise)

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.

Sr. Software Engineer, Cloud Services
