Your role: As part of the VFX department you will collaborate with all of the different disciplines to create exceptional quality visual effects that will help bring our creative vision to life.

- Good grasp of the physical movement of objects and animation timing.
- Knowledge of how to optimise effects to work with technical constraints.
Your experience: As well as the above skills, you are also passionate about story driven games, and maybe you have released many titles over the years, or perhaps just starting out but have a strong ability to deliver as well as learn new skills.
As a bonus you may also have:
- Unreal Engine experience
- Houdini asset creation skills
- VFX system prototyping experience
Our values: Greatness through Excellence, Teamwork & Integrity.
We offer great pay, wide-ranging benefits and flexible working arrangements so you can focus on what matters. We avoid hierarchy, egos and crunch, preferring trust, talent and experience to see us through. You will be part of an inclusive group of ninjas who know what it takes to succeed, and who will encourage and support you to do the same.
