Cloud Chamber is looking for a veteran Rendering Programmer to help bring our stylized game to life. You will be working in close collaboration with concept artists, the Art Director, and other programmers to push Unreal Engine 5 towards your combined vision. You will be likely modifying core shaders, developing new rendering technologies, and potentially working to integrate third party solutions for particular problems. You will be otherwise developing new and interesting systems for world and character rendering.
We are looking for someone who can look at a piece of concept art or hear an art director's pitch and translate that into rendering code, shaders, and systems. You should be comfortable helping to design new tools and systems to achieve artistic visions. You should be equally comfortable thinking about how to make use of offline third-party tools like Houdini and marshaling their data into the runtime. It is important that you are able to effectively communicate directly with artists and help direct them towards performant solutions.
Skills, Experience and Qualifications:
- 7 years industry or related experience.
- 2 or more published titles.
- Previous experience working in a lead role as a graphics / rendering programmer.
- Strong organizational, management and leadership skills.
- Strong 3D Math skills.
- Strong C/C++ experience.
- Excellent communication skills.
- Experience with modern GPUs on the latest generation of gaming platforms.
- Good understanding and familiarity with current Unreal Engine technology is strongly desired.
- Exposure to third-party tools like Houdini, Substance Painter, and Z-Brush in terms of how they can function in a graphics pipeline.
