Job Description Lead Animator - Unannounced project

A little bit about the role:

Home to the iconic massive multiplayer online role-playing game RuneScape and its extended family of adventurous titles, we’re a leading games studio that places our players at the heart of everything we do.

As the home of living games, we’re committed to the development of exciting new titles to build upon our successes.

To do so, we’re committed to building world class teams capable of best in class Art and Animation.

The Lead Animator is an important piece to that jigsaw, and represents a career defining opportunity for somebody to share our vision and have a meaningful impact.

This is a unique chance to plan, build, and coach your own animation team as well as being comfortable doing the hands-on work whilst this takes shape. You’ll help shape the pipelines that determine how we deliver high quality creature and character animations.

Alongside the Art Director, you will also have the opportunity to impact the artistic direction of the entire project. We’re not just looking for something “realistic” or “stylised” we seek originality, we seek to build experiences that players wish to still play for decades to come.

A little bit about who we seek:

The challenges associated with this role fill you with excitement, not apprehension.

You can articulate, with humility, the lessons you’ve learned in past AAA productions.

You’re keen to leverage the lessons you’ve learned so far in your career to do your best work, and you can empower your team in this journey.

You are a highly skilled Animator who can additionally plan, deliver, mentor and ensure that Jagex produces world class animation for our next-generation of Living Games.

You are able to leverage your passion and significant experience to build the right team and create a culture of excellence within the department. You can point to people whose career you’ve positively impacted in the past, and you’re passionate about doing this for your team.

You’re aware of modern & emerging technologies to ensure our pipeline is as efficient as possible.

You may already be familiar with Unreal, but primarily we seek somebody who couples great fundamentals, both artistic and technical, with a pragmatic approach.
