Undead Labs is looking for a Senior Technical Animator to develop industry leading runtime performances and upgrade the gameplay and narrative experience for our next big title. As an individual contributor, you’ll collaborate with a handful of others to ensure our runtime character animation quality is outstanding. If you bring state of the industry technical animation experience and the passion to deliver highly engaging and believable runtime performances, we want to talk to you. You will co-design processes from the ground up and build in game animation systems that enhance the work of animators and raise the bar for animation quality at runtime. This is a high-impact opportunity to work in a first-party XGS studio building the infrastructure to support an emerging global franchise.
Reporting to the Senior Technical Art Manager, this role will collaborate closely with our Technical Art Director, Animation Director, Technical Animation Team, Animators, Gameplay Designers, and Gameplay Engineers.
At Undead Labs, we work in highly collaborative, cross-discipline teams because we understand that the best ideas are ones we generate together. We are creators of hit survival-fantasy franchise State of Decay played by millions, and we operate independently as part of a network of studios now owned by Microsoft. We have a rich history of entrepreneurship and empowerment that will carry us forward as we reach new levels of quality, ambition, and polish.
