Position at Industrial Light & Magic

We are looking for engineers for our Creatures R&D team, to help develop software that brings to life photo-realistic digital characters for major motion pictures.

We’re looking for engineers with experience in creature body and facial rigging and animation, artist-controllable geometric deformation, soft-body dynamic simulation, procedural modeling, and 3D asset management. We need people with strong backgrounds in software engineering, a keen interest in making production-worthy tools for artists, and a knack for simplifying complex processes.

What You’ll Do

  • Work in a collaborative, distributed team of full-time software engineers, and work directly with highly specialized and supremely talented artists, in ILM’s studios in San Francisco, Singapore, Vancouver, London, and Sydney
  • Design innovative algorithms, artist-friendly user interfaces, template-based asset management systems, and automated batch processes that scale to high volume visual effects production; design systems that simplify complex creature setup and shot simulation processes
  • Integrate commercial and open-source systems into the ILM production pipeline
  • Work within and extend and assist ILM’s proprietary software systems
  • Split time between long-term software development projects and day-to-day production assistance

What We’re Looking For

  • BS or advanced degree in computer science or related field, or equivalent experience
  • 3+ years of experience in professional software development and/or VFX production

Personal Skills

  • An intuitive comprehension of the demands of a fast-paced, creatively-driven visual effects production environment
  • Collaboration: a readiness to rely on others, be dependable, and play nice
  • Communication: an ability to express yourself concisely, a willingness to be outspoken, and a conviction to keep everyone informed of progress and issues
  • Empathy: an ability to listen intently and interpret artists’ needs
  • Creativity: an insightful and analytical thinker, and a creative problem solver

Technical Skills

  • Expert knowledge of programming in Python and/or C++ on Linux
  • Thorough knowledge of technology related to creature modeling, animation, and simulation: rigging, geometric deformation and caching, physically-based soft-body simulation, procedural geometry, etc.
  • Experience with Maya, as both a user and developer
  • Experience designing interfaces using GUI toolkits: Qt, PyQt/PySide, etc.
  • Thorough knowledge of software design/development principles: design patterns, object-oriented design, agile development, etc.
  • Experience working with a large, complex, mature, and dynamic code base
