Rigging Animator - Maya, Unreal



Good. Now that we have your attention, we will make the bold assumption that you will read the content of this paragraph.

ArtForge is a starting company that is developing its debut product and we are looking for people that can contribute to this project and hopefully become co-owners of the company.

If you are applying for this position hoping to get a cosmic salary, go back to LinkedIn with the rest of the herd.

When you write your Resume / Cover letter, do not make it too mainstream or follow the rules of how they are written too strickly. Instead, put a pinch of yourself. Write them in a way that will help us understand your true personality and intentions. Avoid using superlatives like "I thrive in working in a fast-paced environment" or " I am a team player". You don't know what we need, so do not pretend to be someone you are not. Instead, be as much yourself as you can be. This is your only way to stand out from the crowd! :)

In short, do not sound cheesy... The cheese smells a mile away!
