At Walt Disney Animation Studios we have a deep commitment to the philosophy that creativity inspires technology, and technology inspires creativity. Engineers in our Production Technology department are charged with developing and implementing new algorithms to solve unique and challenging problems for all of our animated content. We do this working alongside a user base that shares a collaborative environment with us, and uses the code we develop to make our feature films.

We are looking for an engineer to join our Production Technology team, for tool development in our lighting and rendering pipeline. In this role, you will partner with artists, production and technology leadership, technical directors, cross-team software engineers, and other technologists and researchers across the Walt Disney Studios. You will be responsible for evolving a mature suite of tools to make performance and workflow improvements while maintaining a stable product. This will also include investigating, triaging and resolving issues reported by users.

Projects Include

  • Contributing to our rendering pipeline, which processes data (including from various DCCs like Maya and Houdini) and translates them into consumable formats for our proprietary renderer.

  • Designing and implementing new material representations for interactive authoring and editing, utilizing USD as the persistent data storage.

  • Creative approaches to minimizing data duplication and redundant operations within a complex and time-intensive render process.

  • Data gathering and analysis to appropriately target performance improvements.

What does it mean to be a developer here at WDAS?

  • Our engineers get the opportunity to work on the full stack of our tools, from developing the underlying algorithms through building intuitive artist-friendly interfaces.

  • Work hand in hand with artists to make the tools we need for the incredibly complex and rich characters and environments featured in our movies.

  • Develop on top of a highly performant, extendable in-house application framework.

  • Develop new artist-centric interaction models using the latest hardware and technologies.

Key Qualifications
