Computer Graphics Engineer

The Role

The role is to research and implement algorithms which can capture the surface properties of fabrics, wood and other finishes. More specifically, algorithms that efficiently approximate BRDF and BTDF properties for different physical materials based on photographs captured using our in-house camera and light system. (Don’t worry if you have not heard about these concepts: we are not looking for lexical knowledge but rather enthusiasm in 3D graphics.) Basically, if you love 3D and you have great programming skills, then chances are, this position is for you! We will nevertheless list some important points below, because otherwise this job post would be awkwardly short.

About colormass

We at colormass think that product photography is fairly outdated. However, no company has been able to substitute conventional photo shoots on a massive scale. We target the furniture industry with our main goal being to help manufacturers create stunning photoreal marketing materials. We provide virtual photoshoots known as renders. Instead of taking the furniture pieces into a photo studio and photographing them in a traditional way, we just need two or three mobile phone snapshots and from those we are able to create high quality marketing images that can be used on websites or in catalogues. Our vision is to broaden this method of crafting images to any tangible object and build a platform which will become the new standard for anyone creating photoreal images without the need for a camera.

colormass was also selected to compete in the most prestigious start up competition, TechCrunch Disrupt in San Francisco (the “world championship” of young companies), as one of the most innovative startups in 2017. You can read more about it here.
