Senior Gameplay Animator (Project Fantasy)


Hybrid (Copenhagen, Denmark)
IO Interactive

A passion for fantasy worlds has long been ingrained in our studio, and at last we can announce we have embarked on a journey into that beloved realm. With a party of veteran IOI guild members and new wizards and sorceresses of the industry, we are building an ambitious new IP for console and PC that will revolutionize the online fantasy RPG genre. If you share a similar passion for creating welcoming, heartfelt, bold and impactful worlds, join us and together we will write the next chapter in IOI’s history.

As a Senior Gameplay Animator, you will get a chance to make a significant impact on this new IP, with lots of agility and agency: with mocap facilities on-site and plenty of room to get creative with hand key animation in an exciting fantasy world.

What you will do:

  • Work alongside the animation team and create animations that fits the style and vision laid out by the directors.
  • Create an experience which is fluid and has a great feel on the sticks.
  • Bring vision into imaginative motion through keyframe.
  • Bring memorable and imaginative characters to life through animation.
  • Be a senior voice on the project, who will not only create fantastic and fluid animations, but also instruct junior and intermediate team mates, and support them throughout production.
  • Work closely with the Lead Animator to support a courageous and constructive culture.

Who you are:

  • An enthusiastic animator with extensive experience working in the AAA games industry.
  • A team player, who sees the value in a supportive and constructive culture, and actively strives to contribute to it.
  • Someone who can create benchmark animations.
  • Someone who can craft animations without solely relying on Motion Capture.
