Riftweaver, Inc. is seeking a Senior Motion Designer to join our team and help us launch the next generation of tabletop roleplaying games!

As a Senior Motion Designer, you’ll bring gorgeous 2D layered art (landscapes and characters) to life. You’ll create awesome custom VFX with After Effects’s Trapcode Suite–to be leveraged in-game and in marketing materials.

Working closely with the studio’s Creative and Marketing leadership, you’ll up the ante on all of Fablecraft’s motion assets. You’ll also work closely alongside a small team of designers and developers, helping us towards our Early Access launch on Steam this spring.

You will be expected to have substantial After Effects experience.


The Ideal Candidate

Our ideal candidate has strong technical chops and an eye for detail. We’re looking for someone passionate about storytelling through animation who can bring depth and movement to a flat image and help the sparks fly in combat! You get bonus points if you’re passionate about tabletop roleplaying games and Unity development. 

Our priority is building a diverse team, and we welcome applications from candidates who identify as part of minority or underrepresented groups. The more diverse our team, the better we will be.


Experience / Requirements

  • 8+ years of animation/motion graphics experience.
  • 2D character and landscape animation skills.
  • Experience in storyboarding and creating style frames.
  • Exceptional communication skills.
  • This is a fully remote role, but candidates must be US-based.
  • Open to traveling to conventions and company events.



  • Experience in basic 3D modeling and texturing.
  • Creative writing or art direction skills.
  • Unity animation or VFX knowledge.
  • Worked on shipped mobile, console, or PC games.
  • Experience in, and enthusiasm for, playing TTRPGs or Desktop RPGs.


Your Day-to-Day Responsibilities 

  • Create compelling and beautiful marketing campaigns that elevate the Fablecraft brand.
  • Create final in-game assets–animated environments and battle maps.
  • Create animations for trailers, teasers, and other game store assets.
  • Collaborate with visual designers to create user interface prototypes.
  • Work closely with a small, dedicated team of developers, artists, and game designers to deliver on Fablecraft’s promise of an intuitive digital roleplaying game!
  • Report directly to the VP of Creative and participate in scoping and planning.


Why Work With Riftweaver?

  • We offer a competitive salary, comprehensive benefits, and a healthy work/life balance.  
  • You’ll join our team in its early stages, so you’ll have the opportunity to influence Fablecraft’s brand and Riftweaver’s culture meaningfully.
  • We’re all extremely passionate and enthusiastic about games of all kinds - and *especially* about creating a TTRPG that’s more accessible to all players. You’ve come to the right place if you want to nerd out.
  • We have company retreats twice a year–just us playing games under the guise of being productive.
  • We’re fully remote and span a few time zones, but we maintain a close-knit, communicative environment–you won’t be on an island!



The pay range for this position at the start of employment is expected to be $140,000-$160,000 per year. However, base pay may vary further depending on individualized factors for candidates, such as job-related knowledge, skills, experience, and other objective business considerations. Subject to those same considerations, the total compensation package for this position may include other elements, including equity awards and a full range of medical, financial, and other benefits.


We’re an independent game studio on a mission to make TTRPGs more accessible to all. Our first product, Fablecraft, is a digital tabletop roleplaying game designed to be easy to pick up and play with your friends, no matter your experience level.

Fablecraft has its own world and game system. It’s also a digital platform that makes play more seamless and intuitive while maintaining all of the roleplaying drama you know and love.

We’re working towards our launch late this year! Fablecraft will be free to download on Steam and iOS and includes a subscription model for the general release.

Featured Game

Fablecraft is a cooperative digital tabletop RPG that’s vibrant, hopeful, and easy to pick up and play. Get started quickly, journey into the magical world of Mythas, and enjoy rich adventures in sessions of 90 minutes or less!
