About the role

We are a fast-growing Y Combinator-backed company with over 30 million users. We're building bleeding-edge technology for developers and amateurs to create immersive experiences and worlds inside our virtual universe.

We believe that the future of virtual worlds is bright, and we're excited to be at the forefront of this industry. As we continue to grow and expand our platform, we're looking for talented individuals to join us on this journey of innovation and creativity. If you're passionate about building the platform to power virtual experiences that bring people together and push the boundaries of what's possible, we want you on our team!

About the Role

As a Senior Software Engineer (Unity), you will be responsible for designing and building the architecture of the next-gen game engine for Highrise, the 3D world builder and the UGC toolkit. These powerful tools will empower Highrise creators to shape and customize their environments, rich games, crafting captivating experiences and engaging content.

We are looking for a software engineer who loves innovation, is approachable, and can work well with others. You should be able to work independently and be self-motivated because we won't be there to hold your hand. And since this is a remote position, you'll need to be comfortable managing your time and staying focused.

So, If you're a software engineer who is not afraid to get your hands dirty, and you want to work for a company that greatly values both hard work and passion, apply now! We can't wait to meet you.

Here are the skills and qualities we're looking for in our ideal candidate:

  • You have exceptional C# design and programming skills with at least 10 years of software programming experience.

  • You must also have at least 4 years of experience in programming with the Unity engine.

  • You have experience architecting, designing, and implementing a wide array of software products.

  • You have experience supporting mission-critical applications at scale.

  • You have experience developing mobile apps for both iOS or Android.

  • You have built any side projects or games outside of work or made significant open-source contributions.

  • You have experience programming in Lua.
