Naughty Dog is looking for a Graphics Programmer, and they’re hoping that person knows anything about Nvidia CUDA or PC programming, DirectX12 experience would be a plus too.

This isn’t surprising anymore, given Jason Schreier says Horizon: Zero Dawn is coming to PC and Sony plans more titles to arrive in the future. This isn’t to say the game is 100% coming to PC, however c’mon now, what does Nvidia have to do with an AMD console? No other job listing mentions it, and this is only 2 days ago this was posted (post Horizon PC leak).

Thorough understanding of current GPU architectures (AMD GCN, NVIDIA CUDA)

Experience with DirectX12, Vulkan or other modern graphics or compute APIs

Console or PC programming experience

The Last of Us Part II launches on May 29th, 2020 on PS4.

Side note – a few people have asked if this seriously was the only listing with Nvidia in it, and yes, it is. You can go on LinkedIn and look up Naughty Dog, hit All Time for posts, then search Nvidia. Only this position comes up. There are other positions asking for DirectX11 from a few years back, however none of those include Nvidia CUDA or PC experience under them, which is the major thing to note.
