Job Category Tools,Lead Programmer
Job Description This studio is looking for a Lead Tools Programmer to drive its Tools division. Our tools team develops standalone digital content creation (DCC) tools, as well as editing functionality integrated in game or in Maya. We are looking for an experienced and passionate DCC tools developer to lead and inspire this team. Our studio produces games using an advanced proprietary engine, and our artists and designers require a large number of custom tools to work effectively. The quality of these tools is absolutely critical to our continued success as a developer, so the effort to produce them needs to be directed by somebody with a true passion for DCC tools development and the ability to convey this to the rest of the team. You will need to work together with designers, artists and other users of the tools to really understand their existing workflow, identify ways in which this can be improved, and guide the team in implementing the needed solutions. The tools are developed mostly in C++ (based on our engine libraries and Qt), with quite a few C# and Python tools to fill in the gaps. 


Are you the lead tools programmer we’re looking for? We want to hear from you if:
  • You have at least 5 years of DCC/GUI tools development experience, preferably in the games industry;
  • You have developed a creative and technical vision on tools development, stemming from a real passion for quality tools;
  • You have experience directing other developers in a lead or senior role, and would like to extend this;
  • You have an excellent understanding of C++;
  • You enjoy working with artists and designers, understanding their work and want to help them become more productive and creative;
  • You possess strong verbal and written communication skills;
  • You enjoy working in an innovative, highly dynamic development environment.


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