Data on a massive scale is at the "heart" of Unity. It is data that allows our developers to critique and improve their games, and it is data that allows our developers to monetize all their hard work.
Our Data Platform Team empowers customers internal and external through data - data about the games and the hundreds of millions of people who play them. Our team aims to provide a highly scalable data collection and processing system, track relevant metadata and statistics, and provide multiple consumption modes tailored to customer use cases.
We work closely with machine learning experts and data scientists to extract as much value as possible from our data. You will be working on some of the most interesting and bold problems with a world-class team that is dedicated to providing our customers with the data they need to succeed.
As the Principal Software Engineer, Data Platform, you will function as a "hands-on" engineer and technical-thought captain to guide the building of tools to organize, diagnose, and visualize data in a semantically agnostic manner for Analysts, M/L Engineers, and Product teams.
