Unity AR Developer at Mapbox
San Francisco, CA, US
Mapbox is a mapping platform for developers. Our building blocks integrate location into any mobile or online application. We want to change how people move around cities and understand our planet. The Unity team at Mapbox creates tools that give Unity developers the ability to create 3D, AR, and VR experiences that bridge with the physical world and create a new class of location-intelligent experiences. The team is made up of a cross section of various disciplines from game development to GIS to HCI design.
The Unity team is looking for a Unity support developer to help document, explain and showcase our work. This role will primarily work on our Unity/AR team as it continues to evolve our Unity tools and help shape the future of maps and AR. We're looking for candidates who are interested in growing into a role that not only writes technical documentation and code examples but also connects our mobile and support teams, helps fix bugs, and interacts with the mobile community through blog posts, conferences, and more.
Qualities we’re looking for
Creativity and discipline. You’re willing to manage your own schedule in alignment with the team’s overall needs. You want a hand in planning, development, and deployment; in maintaining codebases; and in engaging the community.
A focus on 3D/Graphical technologies. Interest in Unity and computer graphics is important, because you’ll use it every day; familiarity with AR, or GIS is a plus.
Outstanding communication skills. Whether voiced or in code comments, you express yourself clearly and concisely. You know when to adapt your tone between friendly and professional.
Extreme empathy. You know what it’s like to be a beginner and you’re excited to help everyone get up to speed, regardless of experience or skill level.
A passion for open source. Mapbox is a commercially driven, venture-backed company, but we depend on and promote open data and open source software with nearly 550 public repositories on GitHub. Take a look at our SDK code and our thriving community of contributors to get a feel for how we work.
Most importantly, a desire both to learn and to teach. You’re open-minded. You explore new languages, skills, techniques, and platforms. We learn new things every day and are excited to share our knowledge with each other.
