Gasket Games is growing and we’re looking for an experienced Animator to help develop a AAA First Person Shooter. Previous experience with full-body and facial mocap performance data, for games or film, is desired for our team: especially if your previous work was for cinematic/narrative performances. Gasket is looking for someone with a critical eye for quality work that is comfortable working both autonomously and with a team.

This role is a 7 month contract which includes extended health and dental benefits, and paid time off. Only candidates residing in BC will be considered for this position.

What will you do?

  • Work closely with a multidisciplinary team of artists, designers, software engineers and producers.
  • Create high-quality mocap animations for use in-game
  • Retarget motion capture body and face data onto character rigs
  • Coordinate with development partners to meet quality and creative targets, adjusting animations where required

Who are you?

  • You have experience in character animation, preferably in games development.
  • You have experience with Maya
  • You have a solid understanding of the animation pipeline: Generating animation files, integrating them into the game/source control and creating/modifying animation systems and state graphs.
  • You have experience with motion capture data and applying that data to existing character setups.
  • You are used to working with a game engine. We use Unreal but any relevant experience is useful.
  • You are passionate about your craft and a continuous learner.
  • You enjoy working with a multidisciplinary team.

Gasket Games was started in early 2018 by a small group of experienced game developers. Today, we are a team of 43 friendly, talented and diverse individuals and we love making cool games. If you join us, you will get to take part in the following:

  • Choose your own working style: remote, hybrid, or in person. You choose which works best for you as long as you reside in BC.
  • Participation in our extended health and dental plan.
  • 20 vacation days per year, plus a paid studio closure over winter break.
  • If you’re social, we have remote socials, in person hangouts (when safe), and a weekly studio update to keep everyone informed and connected.
  • Access to leadership and ability to truly make an impact on the games we are making.

Gasket Games is a safe, supportive, diverse and inclusive environment where people of all walks of life are welcome and belong. We welcome and encourage everyone to apply.

Come work with us!
