THE PRODUCT.

Foundry is working on a EU Research and Innovation project between 10 industry leading companies and research institutions to create a step-change in allowing creative industry companies to re-use existing digital assets for future productions. At Foundry we aim to develop our Flix tool by building a bridge between cloud and on-premise storage enabling a type-agnostic and replicable asset store.

THE ROLE.

We are looking for a full-stack engineer who is able to easily adapt between both front and backend development, takes pride in their craft and remains enthusiastic when tackling development challenges. You’re detail oriented, a problem-solver, organized and focused. You have good communication skills, are an excellent teammate and consistently passionate about delivering a strong end product.

With mentorship from the Lead Engineer, you will work on an exciting greenfield project at the cutting edge of asset management, as well as building novel tech into the existing product range. You will contribute by writing code, developing systems, designing front-ends, authoring automated tests, and playing a part in the planning and delivering of projects and releases.

THE SOFTWARE.

Flix is a visual story development tool for feature film, TV production, games, and more. Designed to promote fast-paced creative collaboration, Flix removes the technical barriers that can cause frustration and slow you down.

With Flix, directors, producers, story artists, editors, and 3D layout and previs artists can all collaborate in one easy-to-access place, letting them explore and iterate freely; deliver faster story turnarounds; and share involvement in the development of a project earlier in the process.

Moving the product forward to take advantage of cloud technologies is an important step in taking Flix forward. We are now rebuilding FLIX from the ground up, using modern technologies and design architecture.
