We're the Curie Team, and we’re creating new magic. Interested in joining us in building a new world of adventures? This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for someone who wants to be a part of building a next-generation MMO from the ground up!

We love horses and the community that has been built around the Star Stable Online universe, but we are ready to move out of our comfort zone into a new world of adventures... without horses .


THE QUEST

We have a vision of the new game, but we need more than that. So this is where we hope you will build some magic together with us.

As our Technical Animator, you will be the glue between art, animation, and tech. This is a senior level position where you will have the opportunity to define our rigging and animation pipeline from the beginning, and build systems and tools to support our artistic vision in the best possible way. We have a world full of wonderful creatures and diverse characters to bring to life and you will be an integral part of making that happen!

To be successful, you need to be passionate about problem-solving and have the ability and experience to plan not only for release, but for a game that will be live for many years to come. Our systems need to be adaptable and expandable as the game grows. You will be very comfortable with creating and maintaining animation rigs, building tools and scripts, managing animation pipelines, and supporting an art team.

We're at the beginning of our journey and preparing to move into Pre-Production on this title that will let players explore epic worlds, build connections with others, and express themselves creatively. We like stories, but we also think the most compelling stories are those the players tell themselves. Our flagship MMO Star Stable Online is in its 10th year of continuous updates with a community that continues to grow in size and passion. That’s our bar for success.


THE MISSION FOR THE TEAM

This new game is something totally different, so the team that builds it really needs to be daring and driven and have our values in the backpack. We all need to be good collaborators and communicators.

We know that we will try small and fail fast. We will be open to feedback and let our audience grow with us. We know when to ask for help and how to share our knowledge with others. And we do know that at this stage, perfection is the enemy of success. 

To help you during this journey you will have a whole company with many years of experience and support functions. You’ll join our growing team in shaping the vision and bringing this new product to life to delight new audiences. 


WHAT YOU BRING

It is important for us that we all share passion and excitement around ambitious games that grow in dialogue with their audience. This project and this role requires you to have a pioneer mindset and enjoy experimenting and breaking new ground. 

Our team is small, lean, and close-knit. We love to work towards the same goals through self-ownership and autonomous but collaborative workflows. Our Technical Animator must be interested in taking ownership of their area of expertise, be comfortable working closely with the Art Lead and other artists by communicating their needs and flagging potential problems, and have an eye for the future as well as what’s required in the here-and-now.

Additionally, experience in any industry standard animation pipeline is a must. Specific game engine experience is not required but would be a huge bonus. What’s more important is the confidence in your ability to learn a new tool if we decide it is the best one to serve our project. Finally, you’ll thrive in this role if you enjoy working with stylised characters and creatures and love the challenge of figuring out the best way to bring them to life.
