Full-Time Positions

3D Asset Designer & Animator

Little Robot Friends is looking for a full-time 3D designer & animator to work with us on a video game launching early/mid-2019. We're looking to hire immediately.

We’re developing the game using a flat low-poly style, a mix of the type of graphics you’d see in Monument Valley and Super Mario 3D Land. We’ve posted a page of examples that represent what we’re looking for here.

Blender is the preferred tool for asset creation, but if you’re a wiz with other tools then we’re open to it.

The position will be contract-based, between 3-6 months depending on your working style and our scope. It may also lead to a permanent full-time position, since we are always looking to retain quality talent when we find it.

Additionally, we’re open to applicants who want to work remotely or on alternate schedules. Ideally you'd be located in Toronto and can join us in the office, but we are willing to work around the physical limitation. Ultimately your job will be to work through a list of assets, create create create, submit them for review, incorporate feedback, move on to the next item.

If you’re interested in working on a cool project with a fun team, please send an email intro along with your portfolio and resume to: hiring@littlerobotfriends.com. Please indicate job title in the subject line.
