The minions of Hell are growing stronger...
Stay awhile and help us make sure everything that moves in the Diablo IV is working properly. Are you passionate about animation? Would you like to work with all the different teams that bring characters to life? Do you love learning and figuring out how game engines work? If so, you should consider this fantastic opportunity on our Technical Art Team.
Our team of hard-working developers is growing. Our backgrounds are diverse, but we share a real passion for making great games. If you’re looking for a tight-knit crew that celebrates self-expression and collaboration, we will be a phenomenal fit for you!
Oh, and you should really like killing demons and getting exciting loot, right? RIGHT?
Stuff We will Trust you With
Right off the bat, we’re going to ask you to solve problems. Your day-to-day responsibilities will center on making sure characters and animations are working accurately in engine. You’ll help implement and troubleshoot assets such as rigged characters and animation sets. On top of that, you will support the Animation and Rigging teams with tools and pipelines, providing them with what they need to build outstanding characters and memorable performances. You might even create some animation content and character rigs here and there, too.
Stuff You Are Familiar With
You may wonder what it will take to be successful in this role. You’ve likely worked with characters, either animating them or rigging them. You should have experience working directly with game engines, and you’re comfortable problem-solving both in-game and in content-creation programs such as Maya. You enjoy collaborating with many types of content creators, from programmers to VFX Artists, from Animators to Designers. Python scripting experience will be a benefit.
