The opportunity

At Unity, we believe XR is going to be increasingly important. We are the platform of choice for XR developers today and intend to remain that way. As the XR ecosystem evolves and immersive computing becomes more prevalent, we want to be ready.

As a member of the XR Input team focused on gaze, and eye tracking, you will be responsible for building features such as user-defined eye/gaze tracking, including both runtime and tools that enable creators to ship immersive experiences to all the XR platforms that Unity supports, from smartphone AR, VR and AR head mounted displays, to as yet unannounced hardware.

Your mission will be to add to and improve all things XR Input - primarily gaze and eye tracking - all the way down to the platform APIs that support them, as well as improving and crafting supporting intuitive workflows. If making all things XR related reach their full potential drives you, Unity should be the next stop in your career!

  • Creating a consistent API across multiple platforms
  • Working with internal teams and platform providers to let developers write once and ship anywhere
  • Closely collaborating with Quality Assurance to ensure the best possible product
  • Participating in an active development team. You will be reviewing code, improving the quality of our products and giving input to our future direction

What you're looking for

  • Strong software engineering fundamentals
  • Expertise with C++, C#, and interop between the two
  • Working knowledge of Unity
  • Great teamwork and interpersonal skills, including strong communication skills and a proactive work ethic
  • Experience or interest in XR application development
