The opportunity

Unity is expanding beyond its engine to offer a variety of solutions for building games and real-time 3D experiences. Our team, Unity Services Foundation, is essential in this effort, providing foundational features to all internal service teams building Cloud services. As a platform team, we enable our internal users to save time and effort, allowing them to focus on developing unique features for their services. We build core functionality so internal teams don't have to reinvent the wheel.

We are looking for a Senior Software Developer to join our team in Montreal. You will focus on facilitating Web API development and improving our core API Gateways, which process nearly four billion monthly calls. We are a web development team mostly focused on backend related matters, but we value the adaptability to also work on frontend when needed. Our Gateway platform provides foundational features to handle authentication, authorization, rate limiting and many other features to develop, publish and operate APIs. Our goal is to make it as simple as possible for service teams to expose endpoints through our Gateways and access necessary core features using our platform.

As a member of our team, you will develop impactful features that address real developer challenges and contribute to our platform strategy, making a significant impact at Unity. We prioritize maintainability, security, and robust code, with a strong focus on developer experience. You'll work alongside senior backend developers, as well as the product team. You will play a key role in user engagement, and regularly interact with and support our customers, seeing the direct impact of your work.
