We create ambitious games in a quietly awesome culture.

That simple statement is at the heart of what we do here atย Possibility Space. Founded by a diverse and experienced team of game and media industry veterans, we are built from the ground up as a distributed studio, allowing developers to live and work where they are happiest. We strive to create an environment where we can do our best work regardless of what we look like, who we love, or how we identify.

Possibility Space is seeking a Mid-to- Senior Animator to help bring our fantastical original IP to life. Are you passionate about storytelling? Do you love creating charming moments in games that can delight and surprise players? Do you enjoy animating a diverse range of stylized humanoid and creature characters?

The Animator will work closely with the Animation Director to define the animation tone and style for a new IP title. They will create appealing animations for our new IP while thoughtfully collaborating with teammates across multiple disciplines.

The Animator will work closely with design and creative teammates to make bright animations for our unique gameplay. They will work with an intentionally cross-disciplinary mindset to bridge design, story, art, and tech-art in their animation craft and workflow, as well as collaborate creatively with audio and vfx disciplines for a holistic game presentation approach.
