Could you be the next amazing animator at Arrowhead?

Right now, Arrowhead is looking for an intern who is interested in developing their animation skills while also taking part in development of the studio's latest project. 

As an intern at Arrowhead Game Studios, you will work together with our feature teams in developing content for the current game project. You will take direction from the studio's designers as well as game directors, and with the guidance of senior animators you will work to bring the game vision to life. All development at Arrowhead is done through iteration, meaning you will receive feedback and areas of improvement after the initial pass on each animation.

What kind of animation work will you be doing?

During your internship you will mainly work on mechanical, level and location associated animations. As the studio's current project is unannounced we are unable to reveal exactly what objects you will be animating, although we can say that it relates to a wide range of gizmos, doohickeys and thingamajigs.

To do this you should be comfortable with both basic rigging and animation using Maya. You should also have a basic understanding of different animation state machines. It is a significant bonus if you have basic 3D modelling skills to create mock-ups based on designs for different features, another plus is if you are familiar with different mechanical movements outside of pure animation work.

Who might you be?

As an aspiring animator in the games industry, we believe that you have a technical interest within the game development process. You are passionate about video games and eager to contribute to a close-knit development team. 

We are looking for the person who wants to join the dedicated ranks at Arrowhead. Everyone here is invested in making sure that the game as a whole lives up to the Arrowhead name. This is why all team members at Arrowhead are given autonomy and freedom to both plan and deliver on their work according to what suits them best. 

We offer a driven and creative environment where small groups work independently within cross-disciplinary feature teams. It is crucial that you can plan and manage your own work efficiently as well as be able to collaborate with your colleagues.

Practical information about the internship

During this internship you will be assigned a mentor who will help guide you through the organisation and your daily tasks. This is in order to make sure you have the tools and knowledge necessary to achieve your assignments. 

We are flexible on a starting date for the internship, however we ask that it will last for a period of at least five months. The internship is an unpaid position at our office in Stockholm. 

If you think that this position matches your background and skills, we would love to hear from you. We ask that your application includes a cover letter, CV and relevant work samples or a link to your portfolio.
