Here is your opportunity to unleash your skills… and gain some cutting edge CFX knowledge.

 

We Are:

Numerion Software, www.numerion-software.com is a boutique dynamics consultancy, leveraging its Carbon dynamics library to deliver cutting edge interactive and real-time simulation solutions.

In order to create truly believable virtual interactive characters, here at Numerion we believe a dynamics centric approach to character design is required. Only dynamics can deliver the micro and macro movements that are essential to bridging the uncanny valley. So, at Numerion we are building a suite of dynamics technologies, on a common platform, that work harmoniously together to deliver believable characters. These dynamics technologies include animation, skin and muscle, hair, fur, feathers, scales and clothing. We are also experimenting with next generation dynamics centric UI paradigms that will empower the artists in powerful new ways. Individually and collectively these technologies are bringing a new level of realism to virtual interactive characters on screen and in immersive AR/VR/MR experiences.

While you might not have heard of us before, you most certainly have heard of our customers and the projects they work on. Our software, Carbon, is used at the cutting edge of innovation in Hero Character Effects simulation. It is used by VFX companies worldwide for Hero cloth and flesh simulation, including in the majority of blockbuster movies in recent years, and even some TV shows. Just to name a few: Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle, Peter Rabbit, It, Avengers: Infinity War, Game of Thrones, Black Sails.

You could say, like Ollivander providing wands for magicians, we provide the tools that allow others to make magic happen.

Numerion is one of the few, potentially the only company in the world today, with such an integrated technology portfolio for interactive character dynamics.

Besides developing software for VFX in movies, shows and commercials, we are expanding into fashion as well.
Now, we are searching for Tools programmers with a strong desire to help develop the next generation of "wands".
Our tools team of highly focused, exceptional Tools engineers works on new projects from the ground up, making this is your chance to come in at the ground level, and help shape new tech that will be used by artists worldwide.
