Guildford, United Kingdom

We're Criterion, and we love making games!

For more than fifteen years we've entertained millions of players around the world with our award-winning games. Our team have expressed their passion for outstanding game feel, AAA audio-visual quality and technical innovation in the Burnout & Need for Speed series and and more recently in Battlefield 1, Star Wars X-Wing VR, Starfighter Assault and Arcade for Star Wars Battlefront II and Firestorm for Battlefield V.

We believe that healthy, engaged teams make great games, so we place enormous value on collaboration, fresh ideas, and unique perspectives. We'd love to hear yours!

Let's talk about how you could be a part of it.

We are looking for a Technical Animator to join our creative team working on the Need for Speed franchise, responsible for the development and implementation of animation, cinematics and character related workflows and content on our AAA titles.

You will report to the Technical Art Director and collaborate with fellow TA’s, Animators/Artists and Engineers in the development of a varied range of tools and pipelines that empower our artists to realize the creative vision of the game.

You will also help to deliver the highest visual quality features possible within technical constraints and be a key point of support for the team.
