Efficient Management: Handle multiple processes and threads effectively, ensuring seamless functionality of the add-on.
User Experience Design: Craft a user-friendly experience within Blender, including features like previews, thumbnails, keyboard shortcuts, enhancing the overall usability.
Custom Renderer Integration: Implement a custom renderer to preview results and display outputs directly within Blender, providing users with real-time feedback on their designs.
Intelligent Mapping: Create an intelligent mapper capable of automatically suggesting or assigning physical materials, streamlining the modeling process.
Innovation and Creativity: Embrace unconventional ideas; we welcome and encourage innovative thinking. As part of our innovation cell, your creativity knows no bounds.

Required Skills:
3D Modeling Theory: Proficiency in 3D modeling concepts, understanding the principles of light, shadow, and material properties.
Python Programming: Strong programming skills in Python, capable of developing robust and efficient code for the Blender add-on.
Blender Expertise: Familiarity with Blender software, including its functionalities and workflows.
Version Control: Experience with Git version control system for collaborative and organized development.
gRPC Protobuf: Knowledge of gRPC protocol buffers, enabling seamless communication between the Blender add-on and the internal API.
