  • Hiring and onboarding will be done via the upwork.com platform. (If you do not have a profile on the platform, we can invite you)

What do we offer:

  1. Fully paid training to develop you to start producing at the highest level.
  2. A fast-growing team that is full of experienced, intelligent and helpful people.
  3. Opportunity to grow and advance to more responsible positions.
  4. Progressive hourly rate as you develop your skills and experience.

Frequently Asked Questions:

  1. How does the Data Protection work?
    Because our information is confidential (proprietary inventions, medical history, etc.) We use a data protection program that we will need to install on your PC. It requires that we have admin rights to your computer. This software is easy to set up and will only limit your newly created professional work user account which we will create via remote desktop software. The data protection software will block uploading to personal online storage, social media, etc. You will be able to use a personal user account and will be able to do everything you normally do. It is all managed on our servers, but we will install a small software client to control the data protection. This is non-negotiable and MUST be done. This is how we protect our client's data and information as well as our own 3D models and textures.
  2. What is a 6 months trial period and what happens after?
    Trial period of 6 months consists of 1.5 to 2 months of only training and development where we will gauge how well you are progressing through the training and how good are your development deliverables. After the initial training, you will be assisting our senior lead animator with their ongoing projects with small and quick tasks, gradually increasing the responsibility up until the point where you are gonna be able to complete the project all by yourself.
    After you pass the trial period and you have been holding our standards and requirements, you will become a full-time employee of Fox Animated Engineering and then we can discuss your contract further.

How to Apply for the Job:

If you found what you read here interesting and you think that you would be a perfect fit for this company, we require that you sent us two things:

  1. Your portfolio
  2. Education and Past Work Experience (CV)

Once you pass to the second stage of the hiring process, we will give you two assessments. One is a written test that gauges your cognitive abilities and your personality and the other is a more practical test to see how well you handle yourself in a 3D environment. If you did all of your tests well, we will have a formal interview via Google Meet.

We have EXCELLENT feedback and love building great relationships. We look forward to working with you long-term.
