One of Apple's R&D Groups is looking for a technical artist, with a deep understanding of the technical side of 3D animation (scripting & tools development), as well as animation itself. If you are an all-round animation tech expert, but also have the skills to animate and rig, this role might be for you. You should be excited about working with an amazing team of engineers and designers in a fast paced environment on pushing the boundaries of animation and motion design.

  • 5+ years of experience working in Autodesk Maya
  • Experience with game engines such as Unity/Unreal
  • Firm understanding of underlying mathematical concepts (bezier curves, IK, etc.)
  • Experience with both linear and non-linear animations (movies vs video games)
  • Can work independently as well as with a team of engineers and designers

Description
- Experience creating keyframe animations
- Deep understanding of animation principles (squash & stretch, follow through, etc.)
- Building and tinkering with physical things: clay models, animatronics, stop motion, etc.
- Experience with 3D modeling & rigging
- Experience with tools such as After Effects, Photoshop, FinalCut Pro, etc.

As a part of the application process, you will be expected to provide a portfolio or demo reel of your work.

Additional Requirements

  • As a part of the application process, you will be expected to provide a portfolio or demo reel of your work and may be asked to complete an art/scripting test. In the demo reel, we are looking for strong acting performances and a good grasp on timing and spacing.
