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 and a performance engineer, you will be responsible for improving the end-user perceived performance primarily in XR input, 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 optimize XR input, 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!

XR is a growing team within Unity. You'll have the opportunity to shape the future of this exciting area as well as learn and grow along the way.
