Is a CS degree a must have at Unity? How much is it taken into account when evaluating a candidate? Does years of experience and dedication matters? And besides the technical stuff, what do you look for when evaluating people?

Realistically all these questions have an answer of "it depends" :) (on the position, team, department, etc.).

Typically a CS degree is not a requirement.
Experience matters if it's for a senior or tech lead position.
Besides technical stuff, we're trying to evaluate the "no asshole" factor, whether a person could work well without much handholding or direction (in most teams there's not terribly much supervision or detailed "management" etc.).

But really, depends on which team/position.
