Your role

We are looking for a talented and creative Unity Engineer to join our team & change the way gen-z communicate online.

  • You will be responsible of the usual boring stuff: implementing application functionalities, translating design concepts & requirements into an application, collaborate with others, improve the tooling, conduct code reviews...
  • But more importantly you will have an impact on the app, the user experience, the users, and the company. Surrounded by the 🐐 goat (= amazing design/engineering/product teams) & shipping at the speed of light ⚡ (= more learning).
  • Among your first missions will be unique challenges like streaming multiple screens & blending the smartphone camera with a 3D world, leveraging AI to add expressiveness or creating extremely optimised yet, immersive worlds on smartphones, scaling up to millions of users. You’ll find plenty of ux, algorithm, 3D, realtime challenges. You name it!

You will blossom if...

  • Expert - you are a senior Unity developer (+5y or extra-ordinary track record with this technology), have strong coding skills, and a keen eye for details. Aka: there is not a week without one of your teammates asking for your help.
  • Growth mindset - you are passionate, curious and analytical. You are quick to identify potential issues and come up with a better plan. You leverage your creativity to find original and pragmatic solutions. Aka: you read, try, experiment & always find new smart solutions to problems
  • Low ego, high impact - you are never satisfied with status quo, you fight for the best ideas to win but you know how to operate in a team, even disagree & commit when necessary. You are reliable, accountable and help the whole team win. Aka: you have an impact both at the individual & team level, people fight to have you with them
  • Excellent communicator - you are able to speak and write English fluently, summarise and present your ideas clearly, you know when to ask for help or give feedbacks. Aka: you never heard yet someone telling you “I don’t understand what you mean”
  • Shared values - you want to join an international and diverse team because you know that talent does not depend on the place you are born in. Half the team is Colombian, the other half is French. What brings us together is the drive to create a category defining product bringing people closer to each other. Aka: you thrive at the contact of diverse & passionate people

Who are we looking for?

We don’t care about your degrees or location, we are looking for the best people around here. Here is a few things we will seek:

  • 5 years experience with Unity 3D or an extra-ordinary track record with this technology
  • Strong C# object-oriented programming and scripting language skills
  • Experience working with game assets (meshes, animations, materials etc)
  • Experience profiling, optimising games and their render performances (GPU and CPU)
  • Experience working on a physics-based game project
  • Experience with source control systems such as Git in a multi developer team environment
  • Experience working with a REST API and real time protocols (socket...)
  • English fluent, written and spoken
  • Bonus points

🖖 How do we work?

🕵️  How do we interview people?

We are huge believers that these processes work both ways. We organise several steps for you to get to know us, the way we work, our values and expectations. And the other way around. Come as you are, with your questions and challenges. This process may vary a little depending on the specifics of a job...

  • Deep dive interview - 50 min call to deep dive on your role, past experiences, personality, wishes, and what resonates with you in our product. Usually happen with the future manager & 1 other team member.
  • Technical interview - 50 min call to deep dive on the test you received and completed. Reminder: there is no perfect answer, we are mainly interested in how you think & how proactive you are.
  • Founders call - 15 to 30 min call to meet the founders, get to know more about the vision and culture.

How long does it take?

  • After receiving you application, we will take the time to review it and get back to you within 5 working days.
  • Between the first call and last step, we usually take up to 2 weeks. It may take longer depending on external factors but we will always try to say it upfront. As a matter a fact, we are a startup, time is our enemy and we try to move fast.
🤩 What do we look for in teammates?
  • Diverse: you should know that we are a diverse team (and we cherish it). Half the team is Colombian, the other half is French. Our natives languages are Spanish & French but we speak English between us.
  • Dedicated: we are on the mission of inventing a new category, between social and game, to create a sense of belonging. We have a bold vision and will prioritise ambitious, autonomous and passionate people.
  • Growing: we value candidates with a growth mindset, low ego and fighting respectfully for the best ideas to win. Being accountable and proactive is a requirement.
  • Product-driven: you will feel at home if you obsess about users’ needs, outstanding design & experiences, and best in class execution. We created a product driven company.
👩‍💻 How do we build products?

Focus & Speed are our superpowers!

  • We have a bold vision but to get there, we need to test with users every week until we find our product-market-fit.
