The opportunity

Unity Technologies, supporting 25+ platforms, is a global leader in real-time 3D technology; we offer groundbreaking technology across hardware platforms around the world! As such, we are uniquely positioned to have access and knowledge of current and future tech, building an engine to truly enable success for millions of creators.

We're looking for a highly skilled and self-motivated Senior Technical Program Manager to facilitate operations and communications for our globally-distributed Platforms team. In this role, you will work multi-functionally with engineering, product management, and other subject areas, supporting the team in their processes and opening doors to collaboration with the rest of the company. You will also play a key role in building relationships and facilitating collaboration with our platform partners.

The Platforms team is spread across multiple locations in North America and Europe. We are very distributed, so some international travel is to be expected.

In this opportunity you will wear several hats: connector, mentor, reporter, translator, diplomat, firefighter. Someone who will ride the line between Helper and Leader, acting as a force multiplier for the teams you are embedded with. You will have a light-touch program management style, and a dedication to cultivate a culture of individual empowerment, ownership, and trust. You will have demonstrable communication skills, and an understanding and appreciation for working across different cultures as our R&D teams are distributed internationally.

What you’ll be doing

  • Act as a collaborative force to help partners and in-house teams work together fluently, embracing divergent priorities, processes, and cultures
  • Use proficiency in common software production methodologies and deep empathy for developers to improve the team’s ability to plan and deliver software without hampering progress or autonomy of developers
  • Coordinate with team leadership and product management to build and maintain a clear roadmap of both internal and external projects
  • Establish relationships with other teams in different offices to enable working on shared product goals and to craft and improve Unity’s overall product strategy
  • Circulate regular status updates to partners, providing a concise high-level view into team health and progress against goals

What we’re looking for

  • Extensive experience in software production / project management, working cross functionally within an engineering organization (or equivalent related experience)
  • Outstanding communication skills, both written and oral, to speak to a broad audience
  • Ability to gracefully lead change in an organization, working with the current of embedded habits rather than fighting against it
  • Familiarity with platform technologies and challenges in game/app development
  • Demonstrate a proactive, curious mentality and be willing to ask questions and dig for your own answers as well

You might also have

  • Working with distributed teams across time zones
  • Enterprise-scale software development
  • Game development (Unity engine or otherwise)

We will ensure that individuals with disabilities are provided reasonable accommodation to participate in the job application or interview process, to perform essential job functions, and to receive other benefits and privileges of employment. Please contact us to request accommodation.
