Senior Animation Developer

Stockholm | Game Studio | ref: 1651

We are looking for an experienced Developer to join our new Shooter project in Stockholm.

In collaboration with Activision Blizzard, we are adapting one of the most iconic game franchises of all-time: Call of Duty. The aim is to create a Call of Duty experience on mobile, while also breaking new ground for mobile and redefining the genre. The approach and ambition is to be fresh, social, and highly accessible, while providing a very authentic game experience. You will prototype extensively, have the freedom to think outside the box, and be encouraged to stretch your expertise in ways to create surprising results.

Your role within our great Kingdom

You will be working on the animation side of character mechanics, such as locomotion, cover, gun play and combat. This involves working closely with our animation team to implement code systems and animation blend trees to realize the vision of the game directors. This will be an iterative process with continual reviews where we tune and polish features to produce the best combination of immersion and responsiveness. You will be expected to drive feature development forward and you will be in a position to contribute significantly to game feature design.

We offer you the chance to work in an agile environment where frequent, fast-paced releases mean you’ll see the impact of your work almost immediately.

There might be opportunities to have Development Manager responsibilities alongside programming in the future, for somebody who enjoy seeing people develop and love to be part of making others reach their full potential.
