Job Description
Rocksteady Studios is looking for a Senior Animation Programmer to join our dedicated and collaborative team to work on our upcoming AAA title Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League.

The role involves developing animation systems and tools, with a focus on gameplay animation. You'll enable our animators, artists and game coders to deliver the exceptionally high-quality content and game experience that Rocksteady is known for.

Covid-19 Hiring Update: We've transitioned to a work-from-home model, and we're continuing to interview and hire during this time. This role is expected to begin as a remote position, and once it's safe to return to the office can either be completed from our London HQ, fully remotely or some combination of the two.

Responsibilities:
• Driving and implementing new animation pipelines and features through all stages of production: design, scheduling, implementation, and polish
• Acting as a first line of support for our gameplay teams, evaluating new feature requests for their pipelines and tools, and implementing time-saving and quality-improving changes to help our team create best-in-industry gameplay animation
• Working closely with other team members from all disciplines, communicating technical concepts and requirements in a way that facilitates smooth workflow
• Offering advice and suggestions for improving the development process
• Being proactive and help with problem solving

Requirements:
• Advanced understanding of C++
• Solid understanding of modern animation pipelines and tools such as 3ds Max, Maya or MotionBuilder
• Experience supporting and collaborating with animators and artists to produce high quality content and efficient processes
• Good knowledge of game technology principles, the main gaming platforms and the requirements needed to develop software on them

Bonus Points:
• Experience with Unreal Engine 4
• Experience working on and shipping AAA video games
• Experience developing plugins for DCC tools

If you do not meet all the requirements, but after reading through the description you feel excited about the position, and believe you'd still be a great fit for the role we'd still love to hear from you.
