Rigger/Technical Animator

Job Description

As a Rigger at Ubi Sherbrooke, you make it possible for characters and objects to come to life and move realistically within our worlds.

From pivoting to bending, squashing and stretching, you define what can be done and how through flexible and intuitive rigs. You take inspiration from the real world when you can – and turn to your imagination when you can’t. With a variety of internal tools at your disposal, you can focus on achieving quality and consistency without having to build everything from the ground up time after time.

What you’ll do

  • Collaborate with the art team to understand the overall game vision and rigging and skinning needs.
  • Study concept art and research your own references.
  • Rig and skin characters and objects while staying organized (keeping your scenes clean, following naming conventions, etc.).
  • Find balance between artistic aspects and technical constraints with the help of technical directors.
  • Partner with character modellers to troubleshoot models when need be.
  • Work closely with animators to make models move believably and overcome any motion-related limitations.
  • Iterate to improve your work based on feedback from interdependent teams.

Qualifications

What you bring

  • Experience in video game rigging, modelling and/or animation or other relevant experience
  • Knowledge of 3D software (3DS Max, Maya, and MotionBuilder) + familiarity with scripting
  • Solid understanding of anatomy and cloth
  • Excellent observation, problem-solving, organization, communication, and interpersonal skills
  • A highly collaborative, creative, and innovative spirit
  • Flexibility and resourcefulness
  • Motivation to reach out for feedback and adapt to it
  • Knowledge of game engines (e.g. Unity or Unreal), a plus

What to send our way

  • Your CV highlighting your education, experience, and skills
  • A demo reel with a breakdown of your best work – seriously, show us your process! Attach samples or send us a link to your personal website or online portfolio.
