    I have been working at Unity Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Unity is a great place to work, we are growing, have fabulous work/life balance and a super cool product. I love being surrounded by passionate engineers that are at the top of their game. We make the world's largest game engine that has been used to make amazing games (Pokemon Go, Super Mario Run, Assassin's Creed). Unity games have over 1.7 billion downloads a month, and we also are the leader in Virtual Reality.

    The new HQ is in a great location (right in downtown close to BART) and decked out with things like free snacks, wine and beer on tap, & free catered lunches. We have offices in 26 different cities and people transferring/moving between the offices all the times, so you truly feel like you are a part of a global team. Engineering is extremely collaborative and always working on cool projects.

    Cons

    None really- keep the Engineering bar high and as we grow, continue offering great work/life balance & perks.

    Advice to Management

    As we grow continue to keep us updated with updates via email and at our monthly all hands.

    Software Test Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bellevue, WA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Unity Technologies (Bellevue, WA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I applied for a Software Test Engineer position at Unity in Bellevue, Washington.

    *Applied for position through the Unity website. Received an automated confirmation, was contacted by a recruiter 5 days later to schedule a phone call.

    *After talking to the recruiter, scheduled a phone call with a Test Manager a couple of days later. After talking to the test manager, I received a Coding work sheet with a number of computer science and coding questions. The work sheet had to be returned within 2 days. Work Sheet requires you to write a couple of programs, with automated tests, and submit the code.

    *After turning in work sheet, had a Google Hangouts interview with Head QA manager of North America. A few days later I received and invitation for on-site interview.

    *On-site interview consisted of of 3 interviews with 2 developers or testers at a time. Question topics: educational background, previous work experience, preferred work environment, computer science, test strategies, working with developers, and game industry experience.

    *Received an offer the following day.

    Overall, everyone I talked to was friendly and professional. The whole interview experience was pleasant and I was informed what was happening at every step along the way. Along with technical abilities, cultural fit is a topic that came up many times. Being familiar with Unity and having a Unity project posted on the Unity Connect website was a plus. I was asked by every interviewer about my personal Unity project.
