Role description

Unity is the world’s leading real-time 3D development platform that enables our users to create, operate and monetize their content. At Unity we believe the world is a better place with more creators in it. We solve hard problems so that our users can focus on their creations. 

In Core we are looking for engineers that love solving complex problems. In our view, solving complex problems requires a desire to understand, creativity, certain risk taking and the ability to talk to other human beings in a humble manner. It also requires being able to take decisions, iterate, work with feedback and learning.

We are transitioning from object oriented programming and rebuilding the core foundation of Unity with the high-performance multithreaded Data-Oriented Technology Stack (DOTS). 

Core is a part of R&D and we are looking for senior engineers to be based in Copenhagen to  work with us on initiatives around On Demand Asset Pipeline, Prefabs, Scripting and DOTS. 


  • Develop tools, real time editing and perform engine programming with quality and performance in mind
  • Organize cross department/group teams to successfully solve internal and customer problems
  • Provide Technical direction including tools, rendering and infrastructure


  • Problem solving skills
  • Programming skills (C++ and C# are a bonus)
  • Architectural awareness
  • Strong collaboration and communication skills (English is our primary language)
  • Comfort to operate in a flat hierarchy and a networked organisation where information is pulled not pushed
  • Willingness to learn and grow as an engineer and person

Bonus points

  • Prior experience with the Unity engine
  • Understanding the challenges of real-time 3D and the scalability and performance it requires
  • Understanding of large code bases and desire to solve the challenges it can bring
  • Desire to drive initiatives

We are looking forward to engaging with you.
