The opportunity

On the Unity PolySpatial team, we are bringing Unity to a new class emerging platform environments. We're looking for technical experts who can contribute to both low-level architecture and high-level feature implementation. Does the thought of diving into multithreading, graphics, data architecture, and networking get you excited? Does working with brand-new technologies such as Apple's Vision Pro sound fun? We've got the role for you! We write C# (and some C++) code daily to connect Unity to visionOS and beyond. Ideal candidates know something about a lot of areas related to high performance interactive content, and a lot about some of them.

Our team combines a startup mentality with the quality-of-life and work-life balance of a more established company. As soon as you join, we'll quickly bring you up to speed. You'll dive into implementing features, designing systems, doing hardware testing, and interacting with users who are actively using your work. You will work with the broader team to guide architectural decisions, and work with partners and customers to identify areas that might need your attention.

  • Writing fast, maintainable code in C# (and some C++)
  • Working with new platforms and ecosystems, such as visionOS
  • Collaborating with other teams within R&D to help bring cohesive and user friendly experiences to our users
  • Helping accelerate a variety of projects, both as an individual contributor and as a mentor

What we’re looking for

  • Fearless attitude and willingness to jump in to unfamiliar areas
  • Technical experience across a range of technologies - graphics, netcode, authoring tools, animation, physics, script interpreters and compilers, etc.
  • Advanced C# and/or C++ development experience
  • Passion for performance, code analysis, and debugging tools
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills with the ability to build relationships across the organization

You might also have

  • Experience developing game engine cores, middleware, or creating games
  • Experience with building and improving multiple game engine components; for example: graphics, animation, scripting, authoring tools, etc.
  • Experience with existing XR/AR/VR technologies, such as ARCore, ARKit, OpenXR, Oculus, WinMR, Magic Leap, etc.
