Senior Software Development Consultant, Solutions Games Consulting

The Unity Accelerate Solutions Games team is a group of highly skilled Software Developers and Technical Artists with deep expertise in the Unity platform, whose main goal is to help our customers improve their internal workflows and projects and assist them in the resolution of very challenging technical problems. In order to do this, we provide a series of short-term and long-term consulting and development services which can range in duration from one week to eighteen months and beyond.

We’re seeking passionate developers who want to share their expertise with our customers and help them achieve their performance targets. Our customer base spans customers from the video games and media and entertainment (M&E) industries. If you're technically skilled, customer committed, and excited to be pushed out of your comfort zone, then we encourage you to apply!

You’ll join the Consulting track, which involves visiting customers and interacting directly with their technical leaders, helping them optimise their projects and workflows and educate them on the best solutions. Our team is asked to resolve challenging problems which requires a level of proficiency in the platform that only Unity can help with.

In the longer term, you'll become a technical expert within Unity. You can pursue various professional development opportunities including personal research, speaking at conferences, delivering training to customers and colleagues, and guiding Unity's direction by delivering feedback and advice positively to our R&D teams.

This role may involve periodic travel to customer and other Unity offices, primarily within Europe and usually during week days.

We're committed to maintaining a diverse team, and we welcome and encourage applicants with diverse experiences and backgrounds!

What you’ll be doing

  • Work with customers on a regular basis for short-term consultations and give them advice on how to resolve their performance issues and improve their existing workflows, including on-site and remote visits
  • Build relationships with Unity's internal development teams and provide customer feedback and use cases to them
  • Help the Engineering Manager with the prioritisation of incoming opportunities.
  • Become embedded with external customer teams to develop interactive applications and tools

What we’re looking for

  • Capability of developing and debugging code written in a large multithreaded C# or C++ codebase, using a multi-platform engine (e.g. Unity, Unreal, in-house)
  • Knowledgeability on how to profile, analyse, and improve performance, from low-level limitations to high-level architectural decisions
  • Experience in shipping multiple games or other real-time interactive applications, including a proven understanding of software development lifecycles
  • Clearly communicate ideas and technical knowledge via written reports

You might also have

  • Experience in delivering training/technical talks and writing technical articles/documentation
  • Deep graphics programming knowledge and experience writing shaders
