Infinity Ward is currently seeking a Senior Rendering Engineer to join our development team.
The ideal candidate will be someone with a passion for graphics, enjoys working closely with content creators, and has experience with real-time simulations/games. You should feel comfortable working in most areas of the rendering pipeline, but also have an area of interest where you've spent some time focusing your energy.
