  • Experience with dynamic hair simulation, and common industry standard solvers (Houdini Carbon, Vellum and NHair).
  • Strong appreciation for procedural workflows and previous experience in other related disciplines (FX, CFX, Lookdev).

About You:

  • Organised, pro-active and a self-starter.
  • A team player and clear communicator, and a keenness for collaboration.
  • Adaptable and with a willingness to learn new skills and techniques – including proprietary software.
  • Calm under pressure and committed to meet production deadlines.
