Why work for us

Unity Technologies SF is the developer of Unity, one of the most popular licensed game engines. It was founded on 2 August 2004 as Over the Edge I/S, and became Unity Technologies ApS in 2006. It moved its headquarters to San Francisco and became "Unity Technologies SF" in 2009. Unity Technologies was founded in 2004 by David Helgason (CEO), Nicholas Francis (CCO), and Joachim Ante (CTO) in Copenhagen, Denmark after their first game, GooBall, failed to gain success. The three recognized the value in engine and tools development and set out to create an engine developed in-house that any and all could use for an affordable price. Unity Technologies has received funding from the likes of Sequoia Capital, WestSummit Capital, and iGlobe Partners. The companys focus is to "democratize game development" and make development of 2D and 3D interactive content as accessible as possible to as many people around the world as possible. In 2008, with the rise of the iPhone, Unity was one of the first engine developers to begin supporting the platform in full. Unity now supports 24 platforms, including Oculus Rift, PlayStation 4 and Linux.
