What we offer:

  • 25 vacation days per year
  • Included Job Public Transport Ticket (live in Berlin, work in Brandenburg)
  • On-site work studio culture with flexible work-from-home days
  • Unreal Engine training through Epic Games
  • A small, highly creative and driven team, which means you can really make an impact on the direction this ship takes, as well as on our future projects
  • We highly cherish passion, but we value work-life balance and an ego-free environment even more, and are convinced that these factors have a hugely positive effect on health, happiness, the collaborative spirit and productivity
  • An LGBTQIA+ friendly company and inclusive team in which all employees are valued
  • Lots of opportunities for interdisciplinary exchange through our Unreal Pipeline which enables us to exchange assets, animations and more with our Animation Studios
  • Opportunities to look behind the curtain of the film animation industry and possibly grow into it in the future



If you can see yourself working with us, please don’t hesitate to apply, even if you don’t fit all the requirements! We want to work with diverse personalities, not checklists.

Please send us:

  • A CV
  • Earliest start date
  • Other things (cover letter, portfolio, etc) optional
