  • Knack for troubleshooting and solving tricky technical problems as well as anticipating issues that might emerge when operating a live game product

  • Strong Unity skills – you’re quick to digest existing code and feel comfortable using advanced Unity Editor features

  • Proactive self-starter with a high sense of ownership

In addition to these, it would be nice but not mandatory for you to know these as well:

Our equal opportunity statement

To entertain hundreds of millions of people for decades, we need diverse teams that understand our diverse audiences.

We celebrate our differences and believe they are the strength that drives us forward.

We are committed to offering equal opportunities for all, regardless of background, age, race, color, ethnicity, religion, disability, gender, sexual orientation, family status, education, socioeconomic status or any other characteristic. We build and maintain a workplace and industry free of harassment and discrimination.

We also aspire to have DE&I as a fundamental part of our game design process to enable us to create even better and more inclusive games, communities and entertainment.
