Job Title DCC Tools coder
Job Category Tools
Job Description This studio is looking for a Digital Content Creation (DCC) Tools Architect to reinforce its Tools & Tech division. Our team develops standalone tools, as well as editing functionality integrated in game or in Maya. We are looking for an architect who can guide the work on these tools, making sure that they develop into a coherent and powerful DCC package. To make this happen all parts of the development effort require the attention of the Architect – where does the data live, in what state? How do the tools communicate? What are the general concepts the tools operate on? How do we provide a consistent, easy to read and yet powerful UI? To answer these questions and properly direct the development, you will need to work intensively with the tools and engine programmers, so you can properly understand the possibilities and limitations of the technology, and let yourself be guided by them instead of confined. But most importantly you will need to work together with designers, artists and other users of the tools to really understand their existing workflow and identify ways in which this can be improved. 

Requirements

Are you the tools architect we’re looking for? We want to hear from you if:
  • You have a solid software development background;
  • You have considerable experience developing DCC tools; preferably in the games industry;
  • You really care about the UI of tools and have formed strong opinions about them;
  • You enjoy working with artists, understanding their work and want to help them become more productive and creative;
  • You have a good understanding of C++;
  • You possess strong verbal and written communication skills;
  • You enjoy working in an innovative, highly dynamic development environment.

Plusses

We especiallywant to hear from you if:
  • You have experience using Maya or Houdini for production work.
  • You have past experience in a similar position in the gaming or movie production industry.
  • You have experience developing tools using C# and Python.
