LEAD SOFTWARE ENGINEER – technical leadership of this high-profile project

You will join a development group with focused teams working on the following;

• server-based rendering of graphics and typography
• browser-resident applications for manipulating designs
• automated pre-press workflow
• Intelligent algorithms for aesthetic layout of type and graphics.

The most important requirement for this job is that you are a smart (lots of MIT, CMU, Cornell types here), thoughtful, mathematically inclined individual with a command of object-oriented programming (correct usage of several design patterns being an example). Versatility in any modern OO language (C++, C#, Java, etc.) is fine. The programming this job entails will benefit from you having specific experience in areas of computer typography and graphic design, such as below. Expect to be put on a whiteboard and to know your Computer Science.

• text formatting, flow, and word wrapping
• international typography (simple and complex scripts, text direction, grid
layouts)
• computational geometry / Graphics programming (spline-based shapes,
intersections, bounding boxes, transformation matrices)
• computational aesthetics (page layout, color theory)

If this sounds like you – please send a resume to scott@biviumgroup.com – subject line “Lead Typography Software Engineer”
