As Qt is open source, you will also benefit from working with the global community.

  • are familiar with more than one graphics API (OpenGL, Vulkan, Direct3D, Metal)
  • are interested in software design and architecture
  • can work independently, managing your tasks and projects
  • communicate well, both online and face-to-face
  • are comfortable working with publicly available code and material

Perhaps you

  • are proficient in writing shader code?
  • know your way around modern game engines, such as Unreal, Unity or Godot?
  • have experience with open source communities and development?
  • have worked with graphics debugging and profiling tools, such as RenderDoc?

We offer you

  • great colleagues from many parts of the world.

Send us some code you’ve written! It can already exist in your public GitHub or similar, or you can write something new. Think of it in terms of submitting a portfolio of existing work, so as to represent you as a developer. We don’t expect you do have a full portfolio available that shows every aspect of your career, but one or two pieces of code you feel are representative.
