Job Position:

We’re Beethoven & Dinosaur, the studio behind award-winning video game, the Artful Escape, published by Annapurna Interactive.

We’re looking for an Animator/Rigger for the next bizarre adventure we’re developing.

This person should be an expert in animation and rigging for games in Unreal Engine, someone with a flair for emotive animation, who enjoys a relaxed work environment and contributing to the direction of the project. Any experience in mocap set-up, recording, clean up and implementation would be a welcome bonus. We’re operating out of the CBD in Melbourne, Australia and, ideally, we’d like someone in-studio but we WILL be considering remote candidates.

Women and other underrepresented developers, please apply! We’re growing a diverse team and we’d love to have you on board. Even if you only tick a couple of these boxes, please apply.


  • Rigging human and non-human characters.
  • Building animations from concepts and reference video for gameplay and cinematics.
  • Liaising with the Creative Director.
  • Working with a dedicated team.


  • Skilled in Maya / Blender (or any other DCC tools as long as you have an established pipeline to Unreal)
  • Ability to evaluate time requirements.
  • Able to work in or around Australian Eastern Standard Time

Bonus Skills

  • Any additional experience in Unreal Engine 4 / 5
  • Prior experience working in mocap data, clean up and implementation.
  • Experience with source control.

We are a fully vaccinated workplace, and expect it of all current and future staff.

Please send applications (including links to your work) to: with Animator/Rigger in the subject line!
