WHAT WE'RE LOOKING FOR // WHAT YOU'LL DO
Our Animator will work closely with the team of talented artists, product managers and engineers to create assets for our suite of mobile games.
We don't have an exhaustive list of criteria for this role -- we're still at the size where we can still fit the role around the individual and their interests (rather than the other way around). Simply put, we're looking for top talent with the requisite Adobe fundamentals, strong animation and (ideally) illustration skills, a passion for games, and a kick-ass portfolio/reel.
If this sounds like an interesting challenge, this role will be perfect for you.
WHAT WE OFFER
In addition to a great work environment and solid compensation and benefits, Game Closure offers:
- Ownership: We're a small team, and we empower our people to pursue novel approaches.
- Challenge(s): What we're doing isn't easy. We're working every day to solve the hardest problems in mobile game development.
- Skills: There's zero stagnation here. We use the latest tools and technologies every day. You can touch everything and see your influence on real, shipping products
- Creative input: Ideas are valued from all corners of Game Closure, and we work fast -- that idea can go from concept to live in short order.
- Community. Closures hang together. We take care of our people and believe it makes us stronger as a company. We enjoy working together and relaxing together.
