Are you ready to Playwork™ with us? 
The Senior Unity Engineer owns the code creation from beginning to end of assigned games and their associated tools and has a solid understanding of all areas of game development.

We value excellent communication skills to build clear technical documentation for new and existing systems, as well as experience diagnosing, profiling and improving performance of games.

English is a must. We are a multicultural team and we are providing a service in English so, we don't care about certificates but we expect you to be able to communicate fluently in both written and spoken English. 

If you think you don't tick all the boxes, we'd still love to hear from you. Nobody checks every box, and we are looking for someone excited to join the team.
