Animation Programmer– AAA Console Developer – UK

This vacancy may offer a work-from-home start until it’s safe to work in-house or relocate to the location.

OPM are thrilled to be working with a well-established developer of high-end interactive and immersive Console and VR experiences.

 

DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES

 

•          Developing game systems that will take our character interaction and locomotion forward to the next generation

•          Applying a deep understanding of Unreal Engine 4 animation and sequencer systems to meet the requirements of the game, extend the functionality and suggest new approaches

•          Achieving realistic human animation through combining animations, IK and other bespoke skeletal control systems

•          Being involved at any stage of asset production from specification to platform-specific challenges

 

SKILLS AND EXPERIENCE

 

•          Expert in C++ – you’ve worked with C++ for an extensive period, and contributed to shipped games on PC, console or mobile.

•          Animation Guru – in-depth knowledge of several game systems, including animation and player control, in both tools/pipeline and runtime. You have a strong desire to advance the quality of high-fidelity characters.

•          Strong 3D Maths – you have a broad knowledge of the theory and practical application of 3D maths in games.

•          Great Communicator – you can talk about your work. You’ll be as comfortable specifying a task with designers and collaborating on a shared codebase with engineers as you are taking feedback from directors and producers.

•          Practical – sometimes a rapid prototype is needed to quickly test an idea. Other times a mission-critical system needs detailed planning and consultation. You have an instinct for what level of engineering is needed, and you can work efficiently at any level.

•          Passion for Games – you’ve probably been playing games forever. You understand an engaging player experience and are confident reproducing it in code.
