Job Description

We’re looking for an experienced Houdini designer to join our team in London. Working with clients like Channel 4, Coca-Cola, Google, IBM and Ralph Lauren, we’re looking for someone who will drive R&D, offer creative and efficient solutions to technical problems and evolve the quality of the studio's output.

The Houdini focus of this role means we need someone with experience integrating it into studio workflows, around areas like photorealism and fluid simulations. We also need to see a portfolio demonstrating how it has elevated projects and results. We are looking for someone who brings energy, technical expertise and problem-solving acumen. Meticulous attention to detail, both creatively and technically, is also crucial.

You’ll be part of the wider design team but comfortable working alone at times. You are happy taking direction and respecting project briefs whilst bringing an edge of your own to the work. Alongside commercial work, R&D is a core part of our practice, so you'll also have the drive to try ideas, think carefully about a subject matter and push yourself and our projects out of the norm.

Creatively and technically, we're constantly looking to understand what's next for a tool like Houdini, so we need someone with a curious mind. What integration can we explore across our client and studio projects? How might this role evolve alongside technological advances such as real-time, immersive experiences and the next generation of brand representation?

From a technical point of view, we expect an excellent technical and creative knowledge of Houdini and Redshift, alongside Cinema4D Adobe Creative Suite and Google Workspace applications. Working knowledge of Unreal Engine is a big plus, too.

This full-time role requires you to be in our London office three days a week minimum (every Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday). We're entirely open to your background and experience and look forward to seeing and hearing about your story so far.
