We look for people that can approach any challenge with diplomacy, remain cool under pressure and possess a no-problem-too-big-or-too-small attitude. Ideally, you will have a background in software development, along with experience in developing  real time cinematic storytelling, AR, VR, and c# development skills within Unity.

  • Build relationships with technical decision makers, positioning Unity as the key thought leader in the Media & Entertainment divisions, thus becoming the trusted advisor
  • Become a technical expert in the use of the Unity product portfolio (Unity, Services, Source Code, etc.) for cinematic storytelling and XR experiences
  • Consult in-depth with developers who are planning to or already using Unity and design, build, and run proof of concepts with prospective customers
  • Position yourself as a go-to consultative resource and solutions expert for the greater business development team
  • Support business development partners with technical consultations pre and post sale, plus actively seek field based innovations that will take our customers projects to the next level

What We’re Looking For

  • Experience in a customer facing, pre-sales, solutions engineer or field engineering role
  • Experience using Unity or other development engine in either a production or solutions capacity with solid C# skills
  • Possess a positive, can-do attitude with the ability to communicate diplomatically, confidently, and effectively
  • Willingness to travel up to 25% of the time
  • Experience with commonly used 3D creation tools (e.g. Houdini, Maya) as well as VR/AR/XR development experience

You Might Also Have

  • Working knowledge of C++
  • Knowledge of animation production pipelines
  • Understanding of common offline renderers and/or shading languages
