Role description

 

Unity Technologies, supporting 25+ platforms, is a global leader in real-time 3D technology; we are at the cutting edge of technology across hardware platforms around the world. As such, we are uniquely positioned to have access and knowledge of current and future tech including game consoles, mobile, and AR/VR, coupled with the power to help unify this emerging technology.

We’re looking for a highly skilled and self-motivated Technical Producer to facilitate operations and communications with our three Console development teams, centered in Stratford-upon-Avon. In this role, you will work cross-functionally with engineering, product management, and other stakeholders, supporting the teams in their internal processes and opening doors to collaboration with the rest of the company.

Here is a unique opportunity to work side by side with console development veterans, as well as reaching across team lines to coordinate cross-platform feature development with the rest of the organization. The area of influence of this role is broad, and has the potential to have enormous positive impact on our users. This is a critical role in our effort to continue growing Unity as the engine of choice for console game developers.

As the ideal candidate, you are comfortable wearing multiple hats: connector, coach, reporter, translator, firefighter. You ride the line between Helper and Leader, acting as a force multiplier for the teams you are embedded with. You have a light-touch project management style, and a commitment to fostering a culture of individual empowerment, ownership, and trust.

This role reports directly to the Lead Technical Producer, Platforms, within the R&D organization. A small amount of international travel is to be expected.

Responsibilities

  • Ensure partners and in-house teams work together fluently, respecting divergent processes and cultures
  • Use fluency in common software production methodologies and deep empathy for developers to improve the team’s ability to plan and deliver software without hampering progress or autonomy of developers
  • Coordinate with engineering leads and product management to build and maintain clear roadmaps of both internal and external console projects
  • Facilitate collaboration with other producers and engineering teams to achieve Unity’s larger strategic goals and maintain a high quality standard on console platforms
  • Circulate regular status updates to stakeholders, providing a concise high-level view into the team’s health and progress against goals
  • Work closely with R&D support teams such as Release Management, Core Developer Services, etc. to help address problems of scale as Unity R&D continues to grow

Requirements

  • Experience in software production / project management, working cross functionally within an engineering organization, including at least one full product lifecycle – or equivalent related experience
  • Outstanding communication skills, rooted in a drive to build relationships, to a broad variety of stakeholders, both internal and external
  • Experience with multiple project management methodologies and issue-tracking systems - as well as an understanding of the shortcomings of each
  • Ability to gracefully manage change in an organization, working with the current of embedded habits rather than fighting against it
  • Familiarity with game technologies and challenges in console game development

Bonus Points

  • Demonstrate a proactive, curious mindset. Be willing to ask questions, and be willing to dig for your own answers as well
  • Experience working with distributed teams across time zones
  • Game development experience, particularly as a Producer or Developer
  • Experience with the Unity engine
  • Experience working on enterprise-scale software
