Job Title – Animation Programmer – Console/PC – Cambridge

Job Location – Cambridge

Job Type – Permanent

Salary – Competitive


Our client has an exciting opportunity for a dedicated animation programmer to work with their highly talented and experienced animation team. You will use technology to improve how we create animations, both in developing tools and processes, and working directly on the animation content specific to each game.

Their catalogue of games covers a wide range of requirements to fit different animation targets and art styles. They have proud history of great character animation, ranging from heavily stylised to realistic behaviours, across both cinematic sequences and realtime motion. Many of their games also feature mechanical animation and physically-driven responses, presenting many novel challenges beyond established skeletal animation techniques.


  • Advanced understanding of C++ and software engineering principles.
  • Experience developing animations systems, handling complex locomotion and naturalistic behaviours.
  • Experience creating physics driven or procedural animation systems that work alongside authored assets.


  • Working with the animation department to deliver the animations that each game needs.
  • Expanding and improving animation technology within the in-house engine and supporting tools.
  • Optimising the animation development processes and runtime game performance.
  • An eye for animation principals and detail, helping to bring smooth, dynamic and reactive animations to their game.


  • Familiarity with game asset pipelines and animations authoring tools.
  • Experience with profiling and optimisation for console development.
  • Track record of animation programming in released AAA games
  • Good analytical and problem-solving skills.
  • Ability to communicate effectively with team members.
  • Good at managing competing demands for your time.
