The Opportunity

The Unity Accelerate Solutions Games team is a group of highly skilled Software Developers and Technical Artists with deep expertise in the Unity platform, whose main goal is to help our customers improve their projects and internal workflows and assist them in the resolution of very challenging technical problems. In order to do this, we provide a series of short-term and long-term consulting and development services which can range in duration from one week to eighteen months and beyond.

The European team is experiencing high growth, and with back-end systems becoming an increasingly important part of Games and Media & Entertainment (M&E) applications, we’re looking to create a team that will serve two functions: provide development assistance in back-end related areas for our long-term consulting and development services, and design and develop the internal tools that will allow our organization to scale. If you're technically skilled, customer-focused, an excellent communicator, and are interested in improving internal processes, this job will suit you.

Your day-to-day work will involve managing a team of Full-Stack Software Developers, helping our Sales Representatives with the assessment of new business opportunities that have a back-end component, scoping potential projects, and leading the development efforts for our internal tools.

As we’re a highly distributed team, the role may involve occasional travel to other Unity offices in order to meet your reports. Occasionally, you’ll also be required to travel to customers’ offices, primarily within Europe. Travel will generally not exceed 5 nights per month and is usually conducted during weekdays.

We're committed to maintaining a diverse team, and we welcome and encourage applicants with diverse experiences and backgrounds.

Responsibilities

  • Manage your direct reports to grow their technical skills and careers, and ensure they have everything they need in order to be successful in their roles
  • Provide assistance to our business development teams and engage with prospective customers who are interested in hiring our services in order to benefit from our back-end expertise
  • Own the development of the various internal tools used by our organization that allow us to scale and do our work more efficiently
  • Thoroughly scope and plan incoming opportunities and projects that have a back-end component
  • Liaise with Project Managers and keep track of the status of ongoing long-term projects

Requirements

  • Experience managing a small team of software developers
  • Comfortable when it comes to interacting and explaining ideas to customers and executives that don’t possess an engineering background
  • Capable of developing and debugging code written in front end frameworks like React or Vue
  • Capable of developing and debugging backend code written in languages such as Javascript, Ruby, PHP or Python and experience in relational databases, or equivalent nosql stacks
  • Sufficient front-end development experience to implement interactive, internal tools using Javascript, HTML and CSS
  • Working knowledge of orchestration including docker and kubernetes
  • Fluent in written and spoken English

Bonus points

  • Experience with authentication and authorization, including SAML.
  • Experience with build process, continuous integration, continuous deployment and build engineering.
