Sr. Technical Artist
Using our industry-leading game engine, we are crafting a whole new line of products centered around running massively scaled simulations in the cloud. What we build will impact multiple industries such as Robotics and Autonomous Vehicles, and contribute to the advancement of the field of Artificial Intelligence.
Our Team is developing a ground-breaking ML operations platform, one specialized in using the power of real time 3D to solve difficult problems in computer vision. Success for us looks like enabling a single ML developer customer to build a production-level computer vision model with a limited set of real world images. In order to achieve this objective, we must make significant investments in simulation and ML infrastructure and 3D simulation tools and content.
Your role on this team will focus on procedural content creation for our Computer Vision and Robotics toolset and services. Our customers are training computer vision systems using synthetic data created by Unity, and the top problem cited is access to trustable 3D content. Your goal will be to create procedural environments and projects that can be used across multiple customers.
What you'll be doing
- Develop realtime 3D environments for use with training and testing AI systems
- Light environments using both baked and real time solutions
- Set up cameras and post effects in real time environments
- Manage projects using Perforce, Git, and/or other source control software
What we're looking for
- Expert-level experience with crafting and lighting environments in Unity
- Strong experience in DCC packages such as: Autodesk 3ds Max, Autodesk Maya, Blender, Pixelogic ZBrush, Adobe Substance Designer, and Adobe Substance Painter
- BS degree in Game Design, Animation, Graphic Art, or a related field, or equivalent experience.
- Experience in game development (or equivalent visual effects fields) with multiple shipped titles, films, or applications
- Key skills in Unity, VFX, materials setup, scene generation, lighting setup.
You might also have
- Experience in groups that have developed or made use of synthetic data for computer vision
- Experience crafting procedural systems using industry tools such as Side Effects Houdini
- Extensive scripting experience in C#, Python or other languages
