Role description

The Sustained Engineering team is responsible for maintaining and improving the quality of all released versions of Unity, across all areas of the Unity Editor and Engine. We embody the Unity values of Solving Hard Problems, and Enabling Customer Success.

Help us fix tricky software engineering problems directly affecting our users - including some of the biggest studios in the world.

Determine which issues are worth fixing - and will be safe to fix for everyone -  in our daily triage process.

Help us move fixes from the bleeding edge of Unity R&D back into the hands of users, in our released versions.

You will gain exposure to the entire Unity codebase, and an opportunity to learn how software development works on a project of enormous scale -- and perhaps more importantly, how it occasionally doesn’t!

You’ll be able to discover more about the full range of technologies underpinning modern game development, and learn about different subject areas while making them better for everyone.

This is an 11 month paid internship starting in summer 2020.

  • Investigating where problems were introduced, and where they were fixed
  • Writing automated tests to make sure bugs don’t reappear, and improve the quality of Unity - permanently
