Wanted: GPU rendering developers

I'm working for an international company with very large (<Trump voice>"YUUUUUGE"<\Trump voice>) industry partners.

We are currently looking for excellent developers with experience in GPU rendering (path tracing) for a new project.

Our ideal candidates have either a:
  • Bachelor in Computer Science, Computer/Software Engineering or Physics with a minimum of 2 years of work experience in a relevant field, or
  • Master in Computer Science, Computer/Software Engineering or Physics, or
  • PhD in a relevant field
and a strong interest in physically based rendering and ray tracing.


Self-taught programmers are encouraged to apply if they meet the following requirements:
  • you breathe rendering and have Monte Carlo simulations running through your blood
  • you have a copy of PBRT (www.pbrt.org, version 3 was released just last week) on your bedside table
  • provable experience working with open source rendering frameworks such as PBRT, LuxRender, Cycles, AMD RadeonRays or with a commercial renderer will earn you extra brownie points
  • 5+ years of experience with C++
  • experience with CUDA or OpenCL
  • experience with version control systems and working on large projects
  • proven rendering track record (publications, Github projects, blog)

Other requirements:
  • insatiable hunger to innovate
  • a "can do" attitude
  • strong work ethic and focus on results
  • continuous self-learner
  • work well in a team
  • work independently and able to take direction
  • ability to communicate effectively
  • comfortable speaking English
  • own initiatives and original ideas are highly encouraged
  • willing to relocate to New Zealand

What we offer:
  • unique location in one of the most beautiful and greenest countries in the world
  • be part of a small, high-performance team 
  • competitive salary
  • jandals, marmite and hokey pokey ice cream

For more information, contact me at sam.lapere@live.be

If you are interested, send your CV and cover letter to sam.lapere@live.be. Applications will close on 16 December or when we find the right people. (update: spots are filling up quickly so we advanced the closing date with five days)

While i would love to get the chance to work on those topics in my work time instead of my free time (my free time is spare), at least it tells me a little bit on what is needed.

But i think i'm already to deep into my specialty to be able to switch. I don't know many/any company willing to provide enough ground to get good enough again in c++ and than switch to another position to freshen up graphics programming and becoming good in it.
