Are you ready to face up to a new challenge?

If creating a universe that combines the freedom of exploration, the thrill of combat, and the unique challenge of building a life in space appeals to you, you’re in the right place. 

Cloud Imperium is looking for a Lead Facial Animator to work closely with the Animation Director and Facial Animation team to assure the highest quality facial animation result within squadron 42 and Star Citizen.
Throughout your mission you will demonstrate a constant drive to stay up to date with the latest technology and new techniques, and hold a thorough understanding of animation pipelines and the processes involved, from concept to implementation.
