At Rylo you'll be working in a small team that's building and shipping new consumer focused camera technology. You'll have a unique opportunity to drive software innovation and influence the hardware design to enable novel computational photography paradigms.

  • Experience optimizing shaders for texture bandwidth, fill rate and ALU.
  • Experience debugging and profiling with tools like Razer and Renderdoc.
  • Experience working on render architecture with modern graphics APIs (Vulkan, Metal, D3D12), extra credit if the engine was multithreaded.
  • Solid knowledge of color theory.
  • 7+ years writing production code.
  • Deep knowledge of C++, C++11, design patterns.
  • Mobile platform focus.

Nice to have:

  • Experience writing cross platform code.

  • Familiarity with design of high-level APIs.
  • Experience in profiling, debugging and testing complex systems.
  • Familiarity with 3D data structures and formats.
  • Familiarity with GPU computing APIs.

Why Rylo:

  • Just a year and a half after founding Rylo, we shipped our first camera on time and with a team of only 18. We love what we do and work hard to do it. 
  • Since launching in November 2017, we’ve expanded distribution to some of the top retailers, such as Amazon and Best Buy.
  • We value: ownership, a thoughtful approach to problem solving, transparency, candor, and a willingness to learn and teach.
  • You’ll help us build the future of cameras so that anyone can easily capture, edit, and share their favorite memories with the world.
