Software Engineer - Graphics

At Eukarya, we develop and provide "Re:Earth," a next-generation, highly scalable, and intuitive WebGIS (Geographic Information System) platform. Re:Earth is the first WebGIS to feature a browser-operated plugin system and is also available as open-source software. We aim to create and disseminate value in collaboration with our contributors, showcasing our achievements at global conferences like FOSS4G.


【Current Situation and Challenges】

A WebGIS engine refers to libraries like Cesium, Mapbox GL JS, and MapLibre GL JS, which display 3D maps on the web. Eukarya is aiming to develop a new "headless" OSS 3D map engine optimized for 3D urban models. Our goal is to achieve beautiful rendering quality and high-speed performance while easing multi-platform compatibility by implementing the core in Rust/WebAssembly and designing it to allow for interchangeable rendering engines. For more details, please refer to the technical articles and reports by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (https://www.mlit.go.jp/plateau/use-case/cm23-07/).


We are seeking engineers to develop the graphics portion of this next-generation map engine, tasked with creating an innovative 3D map engine that balances performance and aesthetics beyond existing WebGIS engines.
