Join a small software team in a BAFTA-winning visual effects company

This is an exciting opportunity for a junior software developer to take the next step in their career and join a leading visual effects house in the heart of London.

This BAFTA-winning company offers high-end compositing, computer generated graphics and digital matte painting to the international film and television industry.

They pride themselves on delivering the very best content from the drawing board to the big screen.

They are now looking for an addition to their in-house software team.

You will also have the opportunity to mentor less experienced members of the team.

You will:

  • Have at least one year of software development experience, most likely in Python although exceptional candidates working in other languages may be considered,
  • Demonstrate a broad range of skills, including excellent communication and analytical skills and an aptitude for discussing technical matters with non-techies, and
  • Be qualified to degree level in a numerate subject from a top university.

You will stand out if you have some/all of:

  • Exposure to Foundry tools and rendering pipelines,
  • Experience of developing in a Linux/Unix environment,
  • An appreciation for the post-production process,
  • An interest in the contemporary TV and/or film industries.

The company offers a competitive salary, modern offices in central London and a stimulating, creative work environment. If you think you are the right candidate and would like full details, we would love to hear from you!
