Hiring Guide

How to hire a 3D Unity Developer

 

Hiring the ideal candidate for your ambitious gaming project can sometimes be an uphill task. On one occasion, you may have trouble finding the suitable talent; while on others, there may simply be a lack of communication which forces you to think that your prospect developer is not worthy of your precious time.

Unity3D development platform is perhaps the most popular software amongst game developers across the globe. So, odds are high that you will get a lot of applicants if you post a vacancy for the same. Since selecting the right person for the job isn’t easy, the below-given guide should come-in handy when you’re stuck.

Clearly state your requirements

The primary reason of Unity3D’s popularity among the masses is its diversity. This same ‘diversity’ sometimes becomes the reason for delays in hiring the right developer. You may be interviewing the best Unity3D developers out there, but what good can it be of if the candidate’s skill set is miles apart from the one you require for your project.

Thus, instead of posting vague or generic skill set requirements in the job ad, come straight to the point and mention what exactly you’d be looking for in your developer. This will not only save your and other people’s time but also bestow upon you candidates who may be the closest to what you are looking for.

Consider, for instance, a developer, who just delivered a major 3D mobile title, is in your office for interview. At first, this person may look like a good match as his CV is impressive. However, what if the person in question worked only on the UI/UX for that title and you need someone to develop the logic/AI for the game.

The same person who was almost an ideal match a few moments ago is now a complete mismatch. This happened only when the requirements were clearly stated!

Here are a few critical points/questions that will help state your requirements clearly to the applicants:

The Platform Dilemma

Unity3D supports a huge range of platforms viz. mobile, web, PC, console, VR, AR, Mac, etc. Not all applicants have had an experience at the aforesaid platforms, thus the right developer for you should be the one who has shipped at least one project on the platform for which you are seeking them.

If hiring for a project in-progress

Unity 3D supports both C# and Unity Script languages but your source code generally uses one. Thus, it is of the utmost importance that your interviewee is well-equipped with the language your existing project is running on.

Will the project be 2D or 3D?

Most of the game developers usually have experience in both 2D and 3D. However, they may be good at usually one because of, of course, the technical limitations. 3D involves more extensive cameras, lighting, models, and textures while 2D lays more focus on animations, sprites, and tweening.

Will the candidate be in charge of UI/UX?

Unity3D boasts a wide range of UI tools. Thus, an employer should ask the candidate about the tools with which the latter has the most experience. Also, a candidate should know the pros and cons of each, and be able to describe why they favor one over another.

The latest version of the gaming software comes loaded with its own UI named the uGUI. However, many basic components and features are missing from it like the drop-down menus.

Other UI alternatives include NGUI and 2DToolKit.

NGUI supports a lot of widgets and so is more popular out of the two.  In a nutshell, each developer should be well-acquainted with at least two UI’s and those are- uGUI and NGUI.

Besides the above-mentioned questions, an interviewer must ask a few technical questions too. For example:

1) Define a prefab and explain how would you use it?

A prefab is a template for a game object. It is composed of the object itself and the children and behaviors attached to it. The best thing about Prefabs is that they can be used again and again. Furthermore, if you make any modifications to the prefab, it will automatically update all instances in the project.

2) As you may already know, when an asteroid explodes in the game ‘Asteroid’, it is replaced by three smaller asteroids. What would be the downside of instantiating three prefabs for this event?

Instantiating prefabs during runtime within Unity is very harsh on the CPU. Thus, one will witness noticeable drops in frame-rate whenever instantiating occurs in CPU extensive games or ‘weak’ systems.

3) How can you tackle the performance drawbacks/limitations of instantiating prefabs?

One way of reducing prefabs is by creating ‘object pools’. As the candidate may already be aware, an object pool basically refers to an array of objects that are instantiated before being used. This comes in handy when a number of items have to be utilized together, like the asteroids in the above example.

A script would load the desired objects and hold references to each in the array. When asteroids spawn, they would be removed from the array and made visible in the scene. As soon as asteroids explode, they would be deleted from the scene and stored back in the array to be reused.

An alternative solution can be used if you are dealing with a small number of objects. In this method, the objects are loaded within the scene itself. A great example of this would be a particle explosion every time the player’ ship explodes. Using an object pool here wouldn’t be the right thing to do since there would only be a need for one such prefab in the scene (assuming your ship can explode only once).

However, you also want to avoid instantiating the effect at runtime, since it may hitch during the death sequence. Hence, in this scenario, keeping a reference in the scene should be the best option.

Conclusion

The above-mentioned questions are just basics that your interviewee should be capable of answering. In case, they stumble or get stuck with them, you should move on to the next candidate.

Unity 3D is a very diverse gaming development platform; you cannot expect all your prospect developers to know everything about it. Thus, as an employer, it would be wise and fair to list down all the skills/requirements that you are seeking in your developer and test them for the same.
