    Hi everyone,

    It's an exciting time here at Unity Technologies. We're working on lots of things, and all of those things need testing! Starting immediately, we're accepting applications for a QA/Support person. The details can be found here: http://unity3d.com/company/jobs

    If I knew I could support my wife and two kids on the salary, I'd probably jump. Or at least seriously consider it ... add Copenhagen to the list of Toronto, Cayman Islands, Vancouver, Phoenix, San Francisco, and then back here to Toronto.

    And hey, my wife now has her Polish citizenship to make her ability to work in most EU countries easier (unlike when we lived in the US on a TD/TN visa and she couldn't work). Stephen "right wing" Harper. Sigh.

    Unfortunately we do need someone in the office for this job, so telecommuting isn't an option right now. We'd also prefer someone who is already based in the EU since that lowers some barriers for working in Copenhagen.

    I am EU citizen, even if i work and live in US ;)

    Sadly is kinda hard to move there and leave here :( telecommuting would be great, and would cost you half :p dunno about the salaries in EU, but here in US we go around 70-80K a year ;)

    But, for example, access to the physical testing lab machines is much harder when telecommuting.

    Oh well. I'd love to apply, really. I've done kind of similar job in the past in an 3d engine company, am not living far away and really like CPH (my wife too). The only real fear I have is that I feel I'm simply not good enough to work for UT... shall I apply anyways? Oh well... :) But beside the fear it would be a honour and and a place to live out my Unity dedication.

    Edit: Applied :)

    Well I don't know about QA, but if you guys are interested in a PhD with a dissertation focused on AI and education/training games for a dev position either on the engine or at SeriousGames, PM me, I'd love to come to over there. :D

    I'm tempted to put my name forward. :) My baboon-assed greyhound is very clingy though, and aside from the challenge getting him and I to Denmark, I wonder if hes ok being on his mat near me at work? Big boy's a good boy.

    I guess dreams are free

    Good luck, great that the team is growing.
