Senior Animator

Respawn Entertainment is an independent game development studio that was founded in 2010 by former co-founders of Infinity Ward and creators of the multi-billion dollar Call of Duty and Modern Warfare franchises. We have since shipped Titanfall and Titanfall 2 to critical acclaim, and are currently hiring for both our Star Wars ™ and Titanfall development teams. Our motto is gameplay first, and the opportunity to create groundbreaking AAA games with some of the best developer talent in the industry awaits our future team members.

What you’ll do...

  • Work with Motion Capture data in Maya when necessary.
  • Implement animations into the project’s engine with full ownership of your work.
  • Work with multiple departments such as Art, Design and Code to complete tasks. Communication is key to understanding how each discipline contributes to the asset.
  • Take animations from conceptualization to shipping without direction if necessary.

Ideally, you will have...

  • Must enjoy what you love. Animation!
  • Mastery of relevant software packages such as Maya.
