You will be the first hire in a Senior development role with a view to being the teams Technical Team Leader. You will build and lead a team developing cinema quality assets for a Unity-based real-world simulator aimed at the production of training data for neural network training (pretty high tech from the outside but I have more to tell).

The team will be responsible for the development of assets including the creation of character animations and the automation of asset production. They will also be responsible for the simulator visual quality.

We are looking for some commercial working experience in the following;

This will be a chance for you to really grow out a development team from the ground up with close interaction to stakeholders and the wider business. Your ideas will be key in helping to build not only the products but the culture of the team, the way they work and how it will continue to grow in the future.

The role comes with a good competitive salary, share options and the chance to be an instrumental part of a company.
