About Us

At INDG our mission is to make every product playable and we’re looking for a Technical Artist to join our team in Amsterdam. For many years, we have been helping multinational players like Philips, Adidas, Electrolux, Yamaha and Ralph Lauren from our bases in Amsterdam, New York, and Bucharest. INDG is experiencing exciting growth and expansion.

Our CG artists, interactive designers, and developers focus on creating virtual versions of our clients’ products, so lifelike it feels like you could reach out and touch them. Yes, at INDG we geek out to sexy technology like 3D modeling and AR, but behind the bits and bytes is an obsessive drive to design sophisticated technology and software solutions.

About The Role

Together with our Technical Director you will work in close connection with the rest of the highly-skilled Artists we have got in-house in order to enhance the workflows, video pipelines and CGI processes. Automation is what you preach and you aren’t shy for a piece of code. Surely, a breathtaking visual result is the number one goal for all your process improvements. Your knowledge of scripting and the industry standard tooling is in-depth and if needed, you can help the team out with taking on board part of the 3D project tasks.

You know everything there is to know about rendering with industry standard engines for stills as well as for animations. Our ideal candidate is experienced with scripting and thinks of driving efficiency through automation, is always curious about anything 3D-related, has got an open and helpful character and knows how to get things done.

What We Offer

We’re located in the heart of Amsterdam, in Raamplein 1. Think… a converted school, tall ceilings and long corridors. Each open room has glass windows which make it easy enough to wave hello to your colleagues but enjoy the space to get work done! If you move from abroad, we will support you with your relocation (e.g. 30% ruling, housing-search, relocation loan, flights, tax-return support in the first year).

We’re a fun bunch who love spending time together whether it’s Tennis on Tuesdays, 4 PM Pizza Fridays or more seriously, putting our heads together to solve 1000 piece puzzles. We have cost-saving schemes for the bike and gym enthusiasts and if it’s food you’re after then a small daily cost for a healthy communal lunch or the late workers can choose dinner from the takeaway menu each evening. And we don’t stop there …join us for boat rides in the canals of Dam or our very own cinema room for movie nights!
