Interview Process

The interview process for Unity Technologies moves a bit slower than most, taking anywhere from 3 weeks to 3 months.

1. Initial Phone Screening

There is first an initial phone screening with a recruiter that is brief and general. This is used as a way to screen applicants to see if they should be moved to the next step. Most of this first call is spent talking about why you want to work at Unity.

2. Coding Challenge or Other Assignment

For technical roles, like Software Engineering, there is a coding challenge that immediately follows the initial phone screening. You’ll have a week to complete it and it isn’t timed. For Software Engineering interns, it should take about a few hours.

3. Virtual or Onsite Interview

The next step is a virtual or on-site interview with a member of the team you’d be working with. For technical roles, this involves more technical questions and acts as a technical screen. For non-technical roles, there will be presentations and assignments to test your professionalism and business acumen.

4. Final Interview

The last step can be either a 4-round virtual or onsite interview with different members of the team or an in-depth interview with the team lead. These questions should include a blend of behavioral questions as well as more specific questions pertaining to the role for which you applied.
