Senior Web Rendering Engineer

Gather
Gather

We are building a virtual universe which fundamentally improves how people interact online.

Today, that means a powerful remote-social platform. We already have people working out of our office spaces, attending our virtual conferences, or going to school on our campus spaces. We have folks hosting everything from magic conventions to artist EP launches to Thanksgiving dinners, and even a few weddings.

The mission of Gather is to remove physical constraints on peoples' lives, and provide a virtual world which surpasses the real one in interconnectedness, personal touch, and expressiveness.

Role Overview

As a Senior Web Rendering Engineer within the Product Platform team, you will be responsible for working on the architectural design and implementation of our web rendering engine and related systems. This includes the rendering engine used for our web, desktop, and mobile applications.

Rendering Engineers here at Gather are responsible for writing highly performant code, implementing new graphics features, and creating rendering abstractions that enable our teams to easily create fun, creative, and engaging experiences.
