Based in Montreal, in the Mile-Ex, Blindspot is a brand-new independent studio, whose objective is to create high quality games with a small team, in which everyone has a direct impact on the quality of our projects.
We are building our studio around 3 core values : Respect, Ownership, and Inclusivity. Troubled by the revelations that have recently shaken the industry, we will do our best to create an environment where everyone feels free, respected, and safe.
In love with strategy and multiplayer games, our first project is a turn based PvP tactical game, developed with Unity, and based on a rich and colorful futuristic licence.
The game could also be described as a mix between Overwatch and XCOM from a gameplay standpoint, with a stylized and painterly visual style, with semi-realistic proportions.
We are looking for a 3D Animator, whose mission will be to :
Work with the art team to define the animation style of each of our characters. Our game is a Hero-based game, so we have a wide variety of characters to animate!
Create animations for our characters, including iconic combat poses that land with high impact, and basic animations with tons of personality.
Plan and estimate tasks in collaboration with the rest of the team, in order to follow the budget and time constraints.
Our ideal candidate would have:
At least 3 years of experience as a gameplay animator in the video game industry.
Related skills, such as Skinning and Rigging.
An animation reel showing a key-framed action/combat scene with a biped character.
The 4-day work week
Flexible hours, and a hybrid working mode wfh/office
A friendly work environment, in a space shared with other independent studios, the Indie Asylum, which regularly organizes social activities
5 weeks paid vacation, including 2 weeks during the winter holidays
A generous bonus system giving back a % of our games profits to the team
Collective insurance and a telemedicine program
Collective retirement savings plan
Blindspot commits to offer equal working chances to every individual, without regard based on the following: age, sex, sexual orientation, physical disability, race, religion, citizenship, native country or any other possible particularities. We sincerely believe in a respectful and open-minded work environment, in which everyone can fully contribute to.
