We are looking for someone with experience animating characters for 2D games, either through Live2D or Spine, who can help us breathe life into the characters of our titles.
Our current flagship game, Evertale, has become the #1 RPG in over 100 countries and gotten over 10 million downloads. With its success, we are ready to step up our game in terms of visuals for future projects, and we are putting together a team to make this happen.

Your primary responsibility will be the detailed planning of animation sequences for our 2D characters. Then, you will either implement those plans yourself with Live2D or Spine, or manage outside animators to deliver on those animations. In both cases, you will also be expected to keep careful track of all the animations that need to be made and ensure they are completed in a timely fashion.
You will also be able to help with other areas of game development, such as research into other games and media and various tasks to implement in-game events.

- Prior experience with 2D animation using Live2D and/or Spine
- Ability to multi-task in a fast-paced environment and handle pressure
- Ability to organize and manage multiple concurrent animation tasks
- Strong desire to wow the audience with the quality of your animations
- Ability to do research and make informed decisions based on data

If this position sounds right for you, please don’t hesitate to apply! We look forward to hearing from you.
