Solutions Developer Lead, Multiplayer Community

About the Employer

Game developers repeatedly say that multiplayer game creation remains one of their hardest challenges; balancing ease-of-use with performance and flexibility remains unsolved. As a result, we’ve seen far too little innovation in multiplayer games over the last decade, while creativity in single-player games has flourished.

We are looking for an experienced Solutions Engineer or Technical Community Manager to help us ensure the next generation of multiplayer developers are fully supported in their endeavors. Join a rapidly growing team focused on the holistic picture - from networking, to tools, to educational samples and tutorials - we want to empower the breadth of our community.

Responsibilities

  • Hire, lead, and grow a team of Solutions Engineers and/or Technical Community Managers
  • Moderate Discord and Forums related to Multiplayer creation in Unity, and ensure questions are answered in a timely manner
  • Triage bug reports and feature requests from the community to ensure the right information is sent to the right parts of the team
  • Review Pull Requests submitted by community members to ensure they adhere to consistent principles

Requirements

  • Experience as a Solutions Engineer or Technical Community Manager
  • Strong technical communication and ability to inform and educate users of varying levels of expertise
  • Strong conceptual understanding of multiplayer games, the systems required, and unique challenges users face creating these types of games
  • Experience working in the game development industry or related industries
  • Strong capabilities to build trust in a community and effectively de-escalate without silencing users

Bonus Points

  • People management experience is a strong plus
  • Open source project management experience desired
  • Teaching, education, and/or technical writing experience a strong plus

We are open to hiring remotely in multiple locations within Europe.
