We’re The Wild, and we’re passionate about collaboration and the power of technology to transform the way we work together. We’ve built a virtual workspace that allows architecture and design teams to collaborate at human scale in virtual and augmented reality.

We’re seeking an advanced Unity engineer to join our experienced team building the next-generation features of our VR/AR/desktop application. You’ll spend your days architecting and developing new user-facing functionality that is intuitive, performant, and a joy to use. You’ll collaborate with the product team to scope and evolve updates to our products that will improve our customers' workflows.

What You'll Be Doing:

  • Working with fellow developers to build our Unity-based VR/AR experience running on Windows, macOS, Android and iOS.
  • Working across departments to plan and design new features.
  • Documenting architecture and implementations.
  • Writing robust, efficient, and maintainable code.
  • Researching and evaluating new platforms, frameworks, and methodologies that will help us reach our goals.

What You'll Be Using:

  • Unity, C#, Git
  • Mac or Windows
  • VR headsets
  • AR devices

About You:

  • You have industry experience developing complex 3D commercial applications.
  • You have deep Unity experience. You know what goes on behind the scenes, and you stay current on the latest developments with DOTS, input, the XR framework and more.
  • You've developed products in multiple 3D frameworks or game engines, and you have opinions on what works and what doesn’t.
  • You go beyond building features to designing the frameworks underneath. You haven’t built one UI framework, you’ve built three, and you have new ideas for a fourth.
  • You care about performance. You use one draw call when other people use three.
  • You are test- and data-driven and excel at understanding how things work to keep them working.
  • We know you’re unique and can do things we haven't thought of. We're excited to see what you bring to the table.

Sound exciting to you? Join us as we build the future of collaboration.
