Pipeline Developer


Reporting to the Head of Pipeline

SB is an award-winning Creative Production Studio with an international reach that produces beautiful imagery and digital solutions for Brands and advertising agencies.


We were the original pioneers of digital retouching in 1991, and one of the very first post production studios to fully harness the potential of CGI and develop in-house capability. Today, we continue to innovate and stretch creative and technical boundaries, with fully integrated production that encompasses everything from CGI, motion and VFX to shoot production and VR. 


We’re looking for an energetic, resourceful and self-motivated Junior Pipeline/Python Developer. We are looking for someone with a keen interest in software design and asset management.


If that sounds like you, then we’d love to have you join our team. We are also open to developers without VFX/CGI experience that are eager to break into our creative and rewarding industry.



Key Responsibilities

  • Writing software in Python that contributes to our pipeline.
  • Building intuitive user interfaces driven by our Artists needs.
  • Supporting existing and new software.
  • Keeping stakeholders up to date with progress.



Required Skills

  • Understanding of software development
  • Keen problem-solving skills
  • Python
  • Experience with source control programmes such as Git.
  • Great communication skills.
  • The ability to self manage and work well in a team.



Required Skills

  • An interest in Computer graphics
  • Experience using Maya and other CG programmes
  • Use of production tracking tools such as Ftrack and Shotgun
  • Games engine knowledge (Unity, Unreal Engine)




  • Degree in Computer Science/Animation or relative experience


Meet our People

Marie Boutteçon

You are absolutely AMAZING. We have no words! Imagery is splendid and the details - I mean - when the bubble is exploding and transforms into metal; and the movement of the pretty snake. We are full of joy and happiness today. Thank you for your fabulous work, I would love to hug you all right now! We are very lucky we met and now we can say to all the world, you are the best creative studio ever!

“As I mentioned it was very well received, with various comments being made on its realism, lighting and quality. “Very lifestyle”, “Painterly feeling” and “great attention to “colour temperature” are some of the (paraphrased) complements that were mentioned.
