Great tools make great games. We're looking for talented programmers who can help develop and architect the many tools that we need going into our next generation of games. We need a strong candidate that can help us implement our next-generation pipelines, including getting complex shaders written in CgFX and HLSL into data that the run-time system can use.
Experience writing parsers and possibly optimizing compilers is preferred. Having an interest in and having written ray-tracers and/or global illumination systems is a huge plus. We will also accept applicants who enjoy a mix of both working on tools and working on run-time, since we have plenty of work to do in both areas. Strong C++ skills are highly preferred, and this person should have a good fundamental 3D math skills. Experience with compression schemes and 3D spatial data structures are also very desirable.
