Your Mission

Infinity Ward is looking for a Senior Visual Effects Rendering Engineer to join our team and drive the vision of what a true next-gen console can achieve!

Priorities can often change in a fast-paced environment like ours, so this role includes, but is not limited to, the following responsibilities:

  • Improve and maintain the run-time particle rendering and simulation code.
  • Contribute to the technical vision and architecture for the visual effects system.
  • Improve and maintain the visual effects authoring tool.
  • Work with the visual effects content team to identify and implement code feature requests.
  • Optimize performance and memory profiles of particle rendering subsystems
  • Stay abreast of technology trends and techniques in visual effects rendering as it pertains to real-time graphics engines.
  • Work with and maintain platform-specific code, as necessary
  • Communicate with and educate the visual effects content team about features of the effects engine and optimization techniques.
  • Adhere to team coding standards and best practices.
  • Understand and embrace the constraints of a game development cycle (you know when bug fixing, and optimization become more important than new features.)

Player Profile

Minimum Requirements:

  • B.S. (or higher) in Software Engineering or equivalent.
  • 5+ years of programming experience in C/C++.
  • Good understanding of multi-threaded programming.
  • Strong 3D math skills and low-level engine experience are essential.

  • Ability to break down problems and design code features.
  • Familiarity with the DirectX 12 API.
  • Familiarity with writing HLSL shaders.
  • GPU Compute experience is a plus.
