The Role

Producing quality VFX content at scale, efficiently and with less friction is a challenge that requires fresh thinking. NetFX is a visual effects production platform that allows artists and productions to optimize work output on a global scale. This unique division provides streamlined VFX tools and resources to create, connect, and collaborate with productions anywhere in the world. NetFX pairs artist talent from around the world with a broad production slate to increase schedule flexibility and offer competitive market rates.

The VFX Pipeline Developer will work closely with studio product engineering teams to seamlessly integrate digital content creation tools and the frameworks upon which NetFX is built. The VFX Pipeline Developer will analyze production needs and provide solutions that address those needs directly or enable technical platform users to build production-specific solutions.

• Maintain and update existing near-term solutions until features are incorporated into enterprise applications

• 7+ years experience in VFX or 3D animation shot production pipeline teams
• Experience in transformative operations on a large scale
• Extensive experience in Python
