The opportunity

Unity is the world’s leading platform for creating and operating interactive, real-time 3D (RT3D) content. We continue to empower creators across industries and around the world!

We are looking for a skilled and self-motivated Technical Program Manager to drive operations and communications for our DOTS (Data Oriented Tech Stack) initiatives within R&D. In this role, you will work across multiple teams to deliver quality and excellence while improving and adapting development processes to enable teams to operate in an effective way.

Someone with demonstrable people skills, and an understanding and appreciation for working across different cultures as our R&D teams are distributed internationally.

What you'll be doing

  • Improve the team’s ability to plan and deliver software without hampering progress or autonomy of developers
  • Work with internal teams to build and maintain a clear roadmap of priorities and dependencies, even in times of ambiguity
  • Circulate regular status updates to stakeholders, to measure our effort’s health and progress against goals
  • Enable cross-team collaboration across R&D and other business units to ensure teams' objectives are aligned with the DOTS initiative and Unity's at large
  • Internalize and live our core values: Users first. Best ideas win. In it together. Go BOLD.

What we're looking for

  • Experience working as a team player willing to jump in and help, whilst also demonstrating the ability to work independently
  • Experience in software production/project management/program management, working multi-functionally within an engineering organization to facilitate high-performing teams.
  • Experience in establishing relationships, maintaining culture, and communicating effectively to a variety of audiences across different time zones
  • Experience with facilitating team performance while managing through ambiguity.
  • Ability to gracefully lead change in an organization, whilst understanding and accommodating existing habits

You might also have
