Senior Software Engineer to R&D Core Input team

The opportunity

Input is at the heart of what makes real-time projects created in Unity interactive. By providing a toolbox to understand and translate human intent, we believe that creators around the world can make the most immersive experiences.

In the Core R&D Input team we are now looking for a senior engineer that loves solving complex problems and has a passion for the development experience within Unity to strengthen the team. In our view, solving complex problems requires a desire to understand users’ workflows and pain points, creativity, certain risk taking and the ability to work well within a team. It also requires being able to take decisions, iterate, work with feedback and learn.

The position is to be based in Stockholm or Berlin.

The team

The team consists of six passionate engineers with backgrounds and experience in development, quality-assurance or product design and is also supported by a Technical Program Manager and a Product Manager. The team operates remotely with team members primarily being located at Unity offices in Stockholm, Berlin, Copenhagen and Pittsburgh. We work according to agile principles and continuously try to improve both how we work and evolve our product to meet user expectations. We cooperate closely with other specialized teams across R&D to build support for Unity users to target many different platforms or devices with a single implementation effort.

The challenge

We are on a continuous quest to support use-cases for games and other interactive experiences and craft the tools that enable Unity users to successfully realize their creative visions - across platform boundaries. A big part of the challenge is supporting a wide range of input methods and devices technically: keyboards, mice, gamepads, touch, gestures, VR controllers etc. on a large number of target platforms like desktop, mobile or consoles. This drives a need to craft a flexible and consistent toolbox of technical solutions that at the same time support an appealing user onboarding process allowing Unity users to learn the basic concepts and slowly transition to more advanced concepts.
