And what sources do you know that can help me to study shaders writing\development(in c++? or VEX in houdini)? And what references and goals i have to pursue?

I have seen a few friends go on to these kinds of positions. They all had C++, python, and scripting skills. They also had a really good understanding of at least one rendering engine, usually Renderman, and one modeling package, usually Maya. I would suggest RenderMan University for learning about Renderman. Good luck.
