The Game Simulation team is a new product team focused on enabling game developers to create bots that can play their games with varying proficiencies including behaviors that are simple, human-like, and super-human. These bots will be leveraged as part of our broader mission to enable game developers to continuously evaluate and test their games at scale by leveraging millions of cloud simulations of their game. Games are some of the most complex pieces of software and require extensive manual work to test, whether it’s tracking down bugs or balancing the difficulty progression and in-game economy.

This is an opportunity to be a member of an innovative AI product team that will define a new standard for the development lifecycle of Unity customers.
