Is making beautiful motion your number one passion? Do you get excited when you get to bring characters to life? Where others see a static model, do you see the potential for movement?  If the answer is YES, then look no further!

As our new Game Animator, you will get a unique opportunity to work with the world’s highest valued intellectual properties: biggest, hottest movies and TV series, and the most beloved characters!  


You understand how to clearly communicate emotion and action, up close and from afar. You’re eager to tackle challenges head-on and enjoy working in a dynamic growth environment. You should enjoy working independently but hopefully are no stranger to teamwork.


You will get to work with around 80 friendly and talented games professionals in our amazing office in the centre of Helsinki. We offer you an amazing opportunity to grow and learn through working for a newly listed company on Nasdaq First North.

  • You know games. You know where to look to for references for any situation you come across
  • You’re a game developer. You know when to communicate things with animation, even if nobody asks you to
