Bungie is looking for a Contract Cinematic Animator to help us tell amazing stories in the Destiny universe. You will edit motion capture data for cinematics and vendor performances, participate in critiques, and set up your animation content inside our proprietary game engine.

Estimated Duration: 9 months

With the uncertainty and rapidly changing circumstances surrounding COVID-19, most positions at Bungie are expected to onboard and work from home for a significant portion of 2021. In 2022, most Bungie employees will adopt a flexible schedule working from home part time (outside of positions identified as either 100% onsite or fully remote in WA/CA). Currently only a select range of positions are available for full-time remote work in CA or WA (please review location for details). Prospective employees located outside of CA or WA will need to establish WA state residency within 45 days of a start date. Bungie’s work from home, flexible work schedule, and remote policy is subject to change at the company’s discretion.
