Sperasoft is opening a new office in Warsaw, meaning lots of new hiring of talent! We're particularly interested in the positions named in the title of this thread, but if you think you have a strong portfolio in other areas (3D, Animation), I encourage you to apply.

If you're interested, I highly encourage you to send me a message here in Polycount :)  I'd be happy to get in contact with you to talk whether you'd be a good fit to the team, and send your stuff directly to our HR director. I look at all the PMs sent to me - if I do not reply, please be patient, and do NOT send multiple messages.
