Job Description

Unity's XR Graphics Team (which handles all VR, AR, and Mixed reality applications) is seeking software engineers experienced in authoring 3D graphics applications. If you're the kind of graphics hacker who lives for breaking the 60 Hz speed limit with white-knuckle performance and loves the challenges of using different graphics APIs and platforms, we want to talk to you.

The graphics engineers in the XR team live at the union of developing and modifying graphics algorithms for stereo- and augmented-reality rendering across the entire spectrum of modern graphics devices (from Android and iOS phones and standalone AR & VR devices to ultimate multi-GPU HMD rigs) with expertise in multiple OSes and graphics APIs.


* Design, enhance, and support Unity's XR rendering methods for virtual-, mixed-, and augmented-reality applications
* Collaborate with Unity's device and toolkit partners to integrate and support their products in the Unity framework
* Support Unity developers by coordinating with Unity's support, business development, and focused-content teams


* A thorough understanding of 3D graphics concepts: geometry, transformations, shaders, and pipelines
* Experience authoring application low-level graphics APIs, such as OpenGL, Direct3D (11 and/or 12), Vulkan, or Metal
* Solid C++ programming skills including the use of containers, iterators, and templates
* Excellent oral and written communication skills, and the ability to work independently yet be a total team player

Bonus points

* Application development on mobile devices (specifically Android or iOS)
* Experience using Unity3D or Unreal Engine for developing AR applications
* Knowledge of platform-specific graphics and application debuggers and profilers, such as RenderDoc, NVIDIA's nSight, Snapdragon Profiler, ARM's DS5, etc.
