Job Description

What we are looking for:
We are seeking an exceptional, experienced 3D animator and illustrator to develop high quality and medically accurate animations and illustrations. Applicants should have a strong comprehension of anatomy and medical terminology. Superior communication skills are essential. Candidates must be able to work directly with surgeons and custom clients to produce accurate animations and illustrations.

What you may be doing:
This position offers a unique opportunity to create animations and illustrations from the ground up. We are looking for someone who can research a surgical procedure and write the accompanying animation script, model medical devices, make antibodies flowing through a blood vessel look beautiful, and everything in between. Versatility and creativity are the staples of this position.

Finally, we are looking for someone who wants their work to matter. We help surgeons, scientists, and medical device companies explain complex concepts to patients to help give them the understanding necessary to make informed decisions about their health. We bridge the gap between confusing medical terminology and procedures, and your grandmother undergoing knee replacement surgery.

What you need to know:
* Proficient in 3ds Max or comparable 3D software such as Maya or Cinema 4D, with strong skills including modeling, texturing, lighting, animation, and rendering
* Excellent skills in composition, production, and post-production within the Adobe Creative Cloud Applications including Photoshop, After Effects, and Illustrator
* Proficient in storyboarding
* Proficient in 2D illustration
* Excellent verbal and written communication skills
* Comprehensive knowledge of anatomy, medical terminology, and the principles of medical illustration/animation
* Must be self-motivated with the ability to multitask and prioritize a variety of jobs
* Must possess excellent problem-solving and time management skills
* Ability to work well independently and collaboratively both within and outside of the animation department
* Bachelor or Master’s Degree in medical illustration/animation

What you should have
* Experience with Mudbox and/or ZBrush
* Experience with advanced animation techniques such as rigging, morphers, and particle systems
* Experience with VRay
* Experience editing audio
* At least one year experience working as a Medical Animator
