Job Description

An employer is looking for a Unity Developer in a Remote location anywhere within the United States. This is for an emerging VR Start Up who is recreating Warcraft in VR. Are you a Senior level developer who loves MMORPGs? How about Virtual Reality? Want to work on a fun, inclusive team? We are seeking to expand our team with Senior VR Game Developers to assist with our Virtual Reality (VR) massively multiplayer online role-playing game project (MMORPG). In this position, you will work with the team to create new features, refine existing functionality, optimize performance, and assist in general development.



Product summary: recreating Warcraft in VR

- Background in gaming is a major plus because the Unity Developer will be working in a VR open world environment for a real time multiplayer game. Candidates will need to have and understanding of the networking side for multiplayer for server authoritative networking and/or game networking in general.

- The team is also looking for a candidate that has experience with memory optimization. Unity has its own built-in internal tools for optimization and this team is working with customized code. Meta Quests memory crashes if 70% full as an example and the team is trying to keep memory usage low and working on memory optimization (this can be taught if a candidate does not have experience in this area).
