VFX Artist – Barcelona, Spain

Job Description

Are you a VFX Artist who fancies working on a game with a monthly audience of 113 million players? From your new office, you'll enjoy a breathtaking view of the La Sagrada Familia, which surely beats your current view of the car park across the street, right? In case you hadn’t already guessed it, your new job is in the beautiful city of Barcelona.

Don't worry though – You're not expected to speak Spanish, but your new employer will provide you with language training to help you settle into your new home. You won't have much to worry about with these guys in fact, as they will sort you out with private health insurance, a monthly ticket restaurant card and 25 days holiday per year. You will also enjoy the afternoon of your birthday off as an added extra so you can kick back at the beach.
