Posted on Monday, October 16, 2023

At Bifrost, we are building generative engines that allow users to create and control 3D worlds. Our goal is to empower everyone to create limitless 3D worlds and images. Our tool has enabled users to achieve incredible capabilities such as autonomously landing spacecraft on Mars, detecting pirates in the Atlantic Ocean, mapping the world from space, and generating synthetic data to train AI systems 10 times faster.

tl;dr

  • Build generative AI tooling to create & control 3D worlds.

  • Backed by Sequoia Capital

  • Tool is used to land spacecrafts on Mars, nab pirates across the Atlantic and enable users to build AI systems 10x faster.

  • Work with an exceptional team to solve impactful problems.

2D Compositing Engineer

We are currently looking for new skills and visions for our image generation pipeline. The ideal candidate would be an expert in 2D compositing with strong technical abilities. They would need the ability to improve image quality of CG renders toward photorealism, to create new render workflows for synthetic data, to create automated processes for compositing and segmentation. Thanks to their approach to image creation, they will be expected to bring new ideas on how to efficiently create image datasets at scale for a wide variety of projects. They’ll be operating as part of a team of 3D experts and contributing to our amazing generative AI tool that is changing the way that AI engineers & researchers work.

🌍 Your Main Quest

  • Owner of the image pipeline

    • Compositing of final renders for delivery to the client to ensure photorealism

    • Setup color and image format pipeline

    • Setup the Unreal Engine render engine to fit the requirement for compositing and segmentation

  • Help to the development of our generative AI tools

  • Suggest new workflows for image creation pipeline that can rely on efficient 2.5D solutions.

  • Ensure performance, consistency and efficient workflow

  • Smooth over the inevitable bumps of production, allowing products to ship faster at higher quality.

📜 Qualifications

  • At least 5 years experience in 2D compositing in the VFX industry.

  • Essential Technical skills:

    • Strong experience working with raw CG renders and tweaking them to bring them closer to entirely photorealistic

    • Training of machine learning models to generate image datasets (example: Stable Diffusion, Foundry ML, Kognat Rotobot)

    • Procedural approach to the craft, making it easier to scale up to large datasets

    • Strong understanding of capturing methods and their effects on an image (focal length, lens quality and complexity, sensor...). Ability to replicate those effects digitally for more realistic results.

  • Soft skills

    • Strong interest in synthetic dataset creation

    • Strong interest in technology

    • Communication skills are key as you’ll always work in collaboration with the 3D, AI and Product teams to understand their needs. You’ll also work closely with the engineering team using the content created in UE, making sure their requirements are fulfilled.

    • Proactivity: with the evolution of tools, we need to keep up with technology and you’ll have to bring in new ideas, try new tools and approaches.

✨ Bonus

Let us know if you have one or more of the following experiences:

  • Python coding

  • Knowledge of real-time rendering packages such as Unreal Engine, Unity, Omniverse
