  • Quality controlling animation output on assigned project
  • Camera layout/blocking/previs when required
  • Contributing to character design, look dev and motion testing as required


  • Previous experience (min 5+years) in a similar role in animation/VFX
  • A thorough knowledge of Maya
  • An understanding of physical motion, weight, balance, texture and form
  • An understanding of rigs and typical rigging set-ups, animation pipelines and transferring data between tools
  • The proven ability to work under pressure
  • Being open to direction and able to embrace change
  • Attention to detail
  • Reliable, with good time keeping and the ability to meet deadlines
  • A demonstrable commitment to creative collaboration within a team and with other departments
  • Excellent organisation, communication and interpersonal skills and ability to work interactively with production and other departments to solve production challenges
  • Modelling and Rigging skills a plus
  • Knowledge of human and animal anatomy as well as life drawing skills
  • Accomplished examples of keyframe animation, both character acting and full body
  • Ability to feedback to rigging and pipeline and direct any technical changes


We are part of a busy content creation, VFX, audio, and post-production studio working on a range of film, TV, and advertising projects in Dublin, Ireland. We are currently working remotely and ideally would prefer if you are, or could be Dublin-based in the future. We love and value a studio environment, although hybrid and remote working solutions will always be considered.

Please send a CV, cover letter, and links to the email above with “Senior Animator” in the subject.
