PUBLISHED: May 24, 2017
UNITY TECHNOLOGIES FINLAND, Helsinki
In Helsinki, you’ll be using technology like machine learning, micro-services and messaging-based architecture on a scale you won’t see many other places. Essentially, you’ll be doing what Google does on the web (only you’ll be doing it in games). What’s more, your work will have a positive impact. It will help creators get paid for all their hard work by powering ads in hundreds of thousands of games. And it will give people the option to play for free by putting those ads in front of close to one billion gamers.
We are looking for an experienced engineer who has low-level technical understanding with solid background in general software development, and perhaps also some knowledge on machine learning/data science. You will work as a part of an international machine learning team to develop best-in-class targeting and decision-making mechanisms. The work will be day-to-day researching for new ways to improve, test and implement ideas.
Unity Ads, a division of Unity, builds advertising solutions and technologies used in hundreds of thousands of apps. Our Ads team builds the technology infrastructure and ad serving systems that manage the delivery of relevant advertisements to hundreds of millions of users every day. Our data systems process massive data sets to develop targeting criteria and analytics that maximize the effectiveness and profitability of our advertising business.
In this role, you will provide the existing data science/machine learning team with in-depth technical knowledge/skill on implementing distributed computing systems from real-time data services to multi-GPU TensorFlow models. You will likely get familiar with details of Apache Spark (Python version), implement services that handle ten(s) of thousands of requests per second, add more tests to our modeling code, and deploy various systems to various environments. As consequence of the nature of our teams work, you need to be comfortable with quick-paced cycle of development as we prefer to try things out in production sooner than later, and be ok with good-enough solutions.
This role is located onsite at the Unity office in Helsinki, Finland.
