    2D Animator with Ebsynth Experience

    Ado Ato Interactive is currently seeking a remote 2D Animator to work with our (amazing!) Amsterdam team.

    The animator will work on the production of our latest interactive and immersive projects, collaborating with our developers, animators, and other leading artists of the new media world. You will have the unique chance of drawing and animating characters and landscapes for groundbreaking fiction and nonfiction pieces while strengthening your own talent and passions. This position will require a lot of experimentation as you set art directions with our team, so we are looking for a candidate who is not afraid to animate outside of the box!

Like this container, Ado Ato Interactive harnesses the magic of new technology to create interactive and immersive experiences with the potential to change our world. Ado Ato Pictures has founded this non-profit wing of our award-winning studio in order to promote social justice through our innovative content - inspired by real-world issues and enhanced by efforts to channel the creativity of underrepresented communities.
