Senior Unity Engineer Multiplayer

Job at Genies, Inc.



Full time

Genies is culture’s avatar technology company empowering developers and artists to create their own interoperable gamified consumer experiences. The company has raised $250 million from investors including Silver Lake, BOND, NEA, and Bob Iger. Initially, Genies were adopted by thousands of Hollywood icons including Justin Bieber and Rihanna through partnerships with Universal Music Group and Warner Music Group. Today, the company is also delivering avatars to the masses through experiences built with its Developer Kit and artist crowdsourced platform, The Workshop. These experiences all integrate together to form one avatar social network, Genies Party.

Genies is looking for a Senior Unity Engineer to contribute in adding a pervasive multiplayer layer to our Experiences ecosystem. We want to take all the possibilities we are already enabling and make it so you can share them with your friends. From asynchronous systems such as achievements and leaderboards, to fully synchronous worlds that you can explore, together, and in real-time. We want a scenario where any developer can come in and make a top-tier Experience within the Genies ecosystem, and simply "turn on" multiplayer for their players.

If you're already thinking of some existing solutions out there that could work for this, then you're on the right path and we should definitely talk. But what if we took it a step further, and also made it possible for our developers to fine tune the multiplayer systems in our ecosystem just right for their experience? Simple and highly available by default, but customizable and tunable for specific scenarios. We are looking to dismantle the barriers that make this kind of development difficult, and you want to help us all get there.

Genies sits at the forefront of the digital avatars and gaming industry. We are on a mission to empower users to create and interact with hyper-realistic avatars in virtual experiences that have captured users' attention worldwide. If you are passionate about pushing the boundaries of avatars, avatar use cases, gaming and creating captivating user experiences, we want you on our team!
