Hello, we’re Glowmade!
We’re a small, exciting company and the goal of our games is to unlock people's imagination and help them express themselves in wonderful, fun ways. Right now we’re busy building a new multiplayer cooperative game with an ambitious creative wrapper around it. We can’t say too much, but if you can imagine Jim Henson’s Labyrinth mashed up with Wrestlemania, then you’ll be on the right track!
This is an opportunity to play a pivotal role in our expanding team. Reporting to Dom Clubb, our Art Lead, you’ll be working closely with him and the rest of the team to animate our player characters, adversaries, and NPCs throughout our gameworld.
From day one we would like you to...
Work with our team in order to create animations for both primary and secondary characters, and get these animations into the game.
Get involved in discussion around the broader direction for the game.
Get to know Glowmade’s game engine and internal creative tools, as well as bringing your own best practice and software recommendations.
In six months you will be...
Confidently taking animations from the seed of an idea, through to final game-ready assets.
Owning characters and areas of the game.
Working with artists both inside and outside of the studio in order to deliver on the game’s vision.
Involved in all game discussions that touch on your discipline.
A central, supportive member of our small team.
The ideal candidate would
'Be able to demonstrate a thorough knowledge of Maya and an understanding of rigging and animation pipelines.
Have a broad portfolio demonstrating a range of work, with an emphasis on physical motion, weight, and balance.
But we are flexible for the right candidate with an open mind and passion to grow!
A few more bits...
This is a full time role and an opportunity to make a significant contribution not only to the game but to our team and the company. Everyone at Glowmade has a voice, and it’s important to us that you feel empowered and are given the time and space to use it.
We’re based in Guildford, UK and so we’d really like to have you here with us onsite. We offer competitive wages and we are an actively equal opportunities employer. If all of the above sounds exciting and you think you can fill this pivotal role, please get in touch. No agencies please!
Keep Calm and waka waka...
