About the role

Working as an Animator at Tarsier Studios, you will be working closely together with your interdisciplinary team to create atmospheric, creative, scary, and readable gameplay. You will be an active part in discussions on how to solve issues and create memorable and striking scenarios. You have an interest in figuring out what good horror is, and more so; decoding what Tarsier horror is. In this role it is important that you have a good sense of how to convey emotion through your animations, that you are good at both giving and receiving feedback, and that you are an open-minded and creative person.

What we offer:

At Tarsier, it's important that our office is welcoming and fun so that our employees want to work onsite; because we believe that working closely with your team is the best way to make great games. That is why our office management and HR department works closely with making the office a really good place to both work and hangout in. We have a large focus on ergonomic, personal work stations, we eat breakfast together on Fridays, and we play games together in the game room. Sometimes we even grab an after work beer together in the kitchen, or throw a Christmas party for the ages.

Our benefit package includes:

  • Pension

  • Insurance (life, occupational injury, health care support, sick leave)

  • Health contributions and check-ups

  • Sports/healthy activities

  • Six weeks of vacation

  • Overtime pay
