About Gravity Sketch
Gravity Sketch is a London-based startup that is shaking up the 3D design space and transforming the future of digital creation. Just like Adobe revolutionised 2D design in the 80s, our vision is to revolutionise 3D design today. Backed by high profile VCs and investors from Silicon Valley, London and Tokyo, we are developing the first enterprise-grade immersive 3D design software which allows designers to create remotely together, in real-time, across multiple devices and platforms. We aim to transform the future of digital creation through disrupting the current design and engineering workflows, placing the user at the center of the creation process. Our product is used by thousands of designers in industries such as automotive, apparel and film, across North America, Europe, and Asia.

You understand PoC, MVP, and production development, and have an abundance of enthusiasm to learn how to properly address and balance the quality (scalability, reliability, extensibility, flexibility, etc) of the systems delivered by your team
With a solid engineer foundation, you have a strong motivation to learn new skills and knowledge in cutting edge technologies, and always be willing to try, propose, redesign, and refactor alternative solutions to be more efficient, reduce errors, and minimise human interactions for maintenance factors.
