Studio Fizbin is making compelling and hand-crafted games since 2011. With over four game releases under our belt we are currently building our biggest project yet, and we would like you to join us!
About the role:
As the VFX and Animation Artist you will work with our art team, game designers and in close cooperation with our resident tech artist. You will have the opportunity to experiment with unconventional VFX styles and explore your interest in visual storytelling, immersion and believable world building.
The VFX and Animation Artist will be part of Studio Fizbin - an award-winning independent games studio with offices in Berlin and Ludwigsburg. The role is a full time position, but in Studio Fizbin it means a 32h work week instead of 40h!
Develop flashy and stylish 3D VFX for isometric real time combat in a 2.5D game
Collaborate with tech artist to find creative solutions for low spec VFX needs and generate a high output volume
Realize typography, collage, graffiti and other unconventional graphic design styles as VFX in Unity
Apply stylish VFX animation to UI widgets and screens
Collaborate with game designers on VFX planning and smart implementation
Our ideal VFX and Animation Artist has a profound understanding of the art pipeline within game development and is accustomed to agile, iterative production processes. They are playful and creative in their approach to game graphics, and strive for crisp and innovative visuals. They appreciate and demonstrate open, empathetic and professional communication and demonstrate a deep fascination for visual design and creative problem-solving.
To succeed in this role, it is also essential that you have the following:
Minimum three years of industry experience in game development or animation
Proficiencies in Unity, Blender & After Effects
Solid 2D Animation skills for UI and VFX
Strong ideation, brainstorming and documentation skills
Comfortable using kinetic typography and collage techniques in their work
Strong time management and prioritization skills, close communication with Production and Direction
We would also love to see if you have 3D animation skills (including 3D character animation) or graphic illustration skills (icons, typography, doodles, graffiti stencils). A strong affinity to anime, typography, graffiti, sci-fi, fantasy and punk music are also a big plus. German language skills or being based in Berlin or Ludwigsburg could be a bonus point, but they are definitely not a must, as remote work is also possible.
32h work week for everyone working full time
Flexible work hours and workplace locations (100% remote is fine) as well as developer community access via two different indie co-working spaces in Berlin and Ludwigsburg
24 vacation days
Work on a major original IP
Strict no-crunch policies and fair handling of overtime
Progressive and queer-friendly team
Flat company structures. We amplify individual voices and agency across projects, foster personal development and push for empathetic, transparent communication
We value diversity and strongly encourage people from marginalized groups to apply. We strive to be an inclusive workplace for any gender identity, sexual orientation, ethnicity, religion, different ability and other walks of life.
