Posted on Wednesday, June 5, 2024

Snap Inc. is a technology company. We believe the camera presents the greatest opportunity to improve the way people live and communicate. Snap contributes to human progress by empowering people to express themselves, live in the moment, learn about the world, and have fun together. The Company’s three core products are Snapchat, a visual messaging app that enhances your relationships with friends, family, and the world; Lens Studio, an augmented reality platform that powers AR across Snapchat and other services; and its AR glasses, Spectacles.

Bitmoji is the digital you — a living cartoon character to instantly express who you are and how you're feeling, in the moment. We believe that the magic of cartoons can improve everyone’s online lives and empower people to communicate in ways that words alone can’t capture.

Working from our Toronto office, you will collaborate with cross-functional departments to develop avatar assets and animations, as well as be a part of brainstorming and executing on unique ideas for the future of Bitmoji.

What you’ll do:

  • Focus primarily on 3D art and character creation using a PBR workflow

  • Create character and prop animations and rigs

  • Assist with animation integration into real-time engines

  • Meet technical and artistic challenges with a positive and proactive attitude

  • Ensure the quality of the final product by actively participating in QA and A/B tests

Knowledge, Skills & Abilities:

  • Communicate in a clear, effective, and kind manner

  • Be proactive in receiving and responding to feedback from peers and leads

  • Enjoys skill sharing and contributing to overall team growth

Minimum Qualifications:

  • A basic understanding of scripting is a plus but is not required

  • Experience with Lens Studio is a plus!
