As part of our group, we research and define novel technologies, assisting Unity’s product developers in realizing their goals of solving cutting-edge challenges for graphics.

  • Enthusiastically share your deep expertise in the area of rendering to help build a stronger community of graphics excellence
  • Mentor and provide expert guidance and leadership in the field within Unity and with the industry at large

What we are looking for

  • Passionate rendering enthusiasts (who are good humans!) and care to work in a collaborative, supportive, and thriving team
  • Extensive knowledge of real-time graphics and modern computer APIs and hardware architectures. You know how to get the most out of GPUs and CPUs
  • Proven experience with modern engine systems, rendering architectures and real-world productions
  • Solid programming skills (C#/C++/Shading Languages)
  • BS degree in Computer Science, Engineering, or a related field, or equivalent experience

You might also have

  • Extensive experience of working on large multi-platform engines
  • Successfully shipped AAA games on mobile or consoles | PCs
  • In-depth knowledge of photorealistic rendering techniques (Physically-Based Rendering, Real-Time Ray Tracing, Global Illumination, Computational Geometry, MIS, and more)
  • Familiarity with the Unity engine
