Unity Technologies

Senior Machine Learning Engineer

Job description

At Unity we believe the world is a better place with more creators in it. The world is entering a new dawn of innovative design with immersive digital experiences unlike anything seen in the past. Unity is laser-focused on democratizing tools for the creators of these digital experiences by providing tools and services to make it easier, faster and cheaper for artists to make their dreams a reality.

The opportunity

In this role you will help to explore latent representations for digital media. This includes textures, materials (as commonly used in real-time computer graphics) and 3D geometry. The goal is to train deep latent representations for all common media formats used in real-time rendering. A follow-on goal is to combine these latent representations through multi-model learning techniques so that new content can be generated through a human operator supplying approximate examples in the form of text and other digital media.

What you'll be doing

  • You'll train, evaluate, improve and deploy machine learning models.
  • You'll research new methods of formatting and re-structuring 3D geometry into a form where it can be inputted into a neural network for learning deep latent representations of shape and texture
  • You'll research new multimodal learning models that correspond and combine the latent representations for different types of media such as image, 3D geometry and text. The goal being a single unified latent representation for image and shape that can be navigated through feeding input examples of images, 3d models and natural language descriptions.
  • You'll work closely with researchers working on applied Texture Synthesis.
  • You'll explore methods for compressing and pruning neural networks for efficient deployment in commercial products.

What we're looking for

  • PhD in Computer Science with research focus and relevant publications in deep learning for computer graphics
  • Demonstrated ability in Python and familiarity with all major Deep Learning platforms, with an emphasis on Tensorflow and Pytorch
  • Great communication skills, both written and spoken

You might also have

  • Experience with NLP and other non-computer graphics Deep Learning areas
  • Experience with Unity
  • Experience with Blender
  • Experience with C#
