Job description

A new dimension to your career.

Masterpiece Studio’s culture of innovation is engrained in everything we do. For us, breaking barriers isn’t just a once-in-a-while occurrence– it’s a part of our everyday routine. Why? Because this company lives on the cutting edge of tech, art, and business theory. Our immersive 3D design pipeline empowers creatives to envision and change our future world, and our work environment does much the same. In fact, the people at Masterpiece are very similar to the products they work on: highly inventive, but always grounded in artistry and tangible results.

Essentially, our team is anything but one dimensional. Forget the classic management hierarchy– from the admin space to the technical side, every person here provides valuable insights and a willingness to pivot.

The projects you will work on here will be ones you won’t want to stop talking about, researching, and exploring every chance you get. Our team enables individuals to develop their skills, so you’ll never be put in a box– but we will challenge you to take the reins and step outside of it.

So if you’ve got a thirst for knowledge and a passion for disrupting the status quo, we’d love to talk. Masterpiece is always looking for big dreamers to help build the new world in 3D.

Job requirements


  • An advanced degree (Masters / PhD) and/or several years of industry experience specializing in 3D mesh and geometry processing algorithms.
  • Experience developing custom real-time editing operations for polygonal mesh sculpting and modelling system (organic and hard surface).
  • Strong proficiency with C++, C#, graphics programming (vert, geom, frag shaders), GPGPU programming (compute) and knowledge of state-of-the-art 3D geometric modelling algorithms.

It would be beneficial (though not required) if they also have a working knowledge of:

  • Unity shaders
  • Unity application development
  • Android development and deploy
  • VR
  • Machine learning
  • Python

What You’ll Do

In this role, our new hire will be tasked to create a real-time mesh sculpting and modelling system for our VR-based 3D modelling application.

Some of the core outcomes we’d love our next hire to deliver include:

  • Creating a mesh sculpting system that can create organic and hard surfaces, such as characters and props.
  • Delivering a high-performance system that can manipulate at least 200k polys in real-time (90hz) on an Android-powered system.
  • Engineering a stable system that is capable of passing automated tests with flying colours.

We suspect our next hire will accomplish their goals by:

  • Implementing geometry processing algorithms.
  • Maintaining high-code quality (documented, maintainable, extensible, modular, simple).
  • Staying up to date with state-of-the-art methods in geometry processing.
  • Creating gating tests, automated framework tests to ensure the validity of new builds.

“I can see the excitement in the people I work with, and it makes me really excited to work with them– because everybody is very passionate about what they do. They're passionate about the future of digital conversations.” - Adrienne White, Customer Support
