Job Description

Theia’s core development platform is Unreal Engine. We live, eat, and breathe UE4, and our customers depend on it for almost every aspect of their 3D production pipeline. One of its most powerful and recent features is a full-fledged Python API that lets developers script out almost all the functionality of the engine. Theia’s latest software product is a desktop application called Optim, which provides a sleek and easy-to-use user interface to automate Unreal Engine workflows via the Python API and some C++. It’s been praised for its beautiful and simple interface that shines in comparison to typical 3D software, and we’re looking to continue the Optim legacy with more of its unique style of buttons, animations, graphs, and snappy functionality. You’ll work under our Development Manager and CTO to build upon the existing Qt / PySide 2 framework and develop new pages, screens, and views for all the new backend features.

We’re looking for a developer with a proven track record of building modern and clean user interfaces. Python development skills are a must, with the bulk of Optim being built in Python with PySide 2 for Qt. You’ll need to be quick to learn or already familiar with the intricacies of 3D graphics or video game development.


  • An eye for good design and modern sensibilities
  • A portfolio we can look at
  • Python proficiency
  • Experience with Qt, Qt Quick, or PySide 2


  • Adobe XD experience and graphic design skills
  • Web front end development experience
  • Understanding of desktop application workflows
  • Understanding of 3D computer graphics terminology and workflows
  • Experience with data visualization
  • C++ knowledge
