Software Engineer, HPC
 London, KY

The HPC team at Foundry has a strong focus on performance and on getting the best out of our customers’ hardware. The team is responsible for our Blink framework, which allows developers to write their code once and run it on either the CPU or GPU.

Blink powers many of the most compute-intensive operators in our industry-leading Nuke family of products. The BlinkScript node in Nuke also allows our customers to write their own image processing effects, compile and test them without leaving the Nuke environment, and to share them with other users. It is also used extensively by our in-house research team for developing their algorithms.

Reporting to the Lead Software Engineer for HPC, your daily work will involve the design, implementation, documentation and testing of C++ code, liaising with other engineers in the team, the product owner and lead engineer as necessary to ensure that the code meets the requirements of the customer and is delivered in a timely fashion.
