Animator plays a key role in creating great animations and special effects to enable us to bring Merge Mansion’s renovating gameplay into a new level. In practice, this means (at least) the following:

  • Elevating Merge Mansion user interface through great UI animations and timing

  • Lifting the yard and Mansion renovation animations to a new level

  • Enabling 3D characters to interact with the environment and each other through clever animation


Every role is eventually shaped to match our unique passions, backgrounds and strengths. Here are some of the key skills and experience you should already have when joining Metacore as a Animator:

  • Several years of experience in game projects working as an Animator

  • Hands-on experience with 2D animation and well-versed in tools like Spine and Unity (Timeline, Animation and Particle System)

  • Practical knowhow of 3D animation and experience using tools such as Blender

In addition to these, it would be nice but not mandatory for you to have these as well:

  • Background working with mobile games

  • Scripting skills

  • Technical know-how of animation pipelines and tools

  • Experience with VFX softwares such as After Effects

  • Experience with DoTween

Sounds about right? Then let’s talk!
