CAD Render + Animation Artist

Apple, Inc. k

Cupertino, CA

Job Description

Apple’s CAD sculpting team is seeking talented render and animation artists with NURBS-modeling experience.
As a render and animation artist on our industrial design team, you will translate Alias models into captivating 3d renderings and animations used in product design and development. You will be responsible for texturing, rigging, lighting, and post-production of product renderings for stills and 3D animation.

Description

The CAD sculptor creates high-quality digital 3D surface models used in the industrial design and product development process. Responsibilities include interpreting and defining the design intent of the industrial designer using Alias software, while directly collaborating with mechanical engineering, packaging, and tooling teams. 3D data is used to develop numerous product concepts, detailed appearance models, high-quality renderings, and production level surfaces used in tooling for manufacturing.

The sculpting team is integral to the design and development of current and future Apple products. Candidates must be deadline driven and possess excellent problem solving, organization, and interpersonal skills. Although this role is designated for a 3D modeling specialist, a background in industrial design is beneficial in facilitating a working relationship with a designer.

This job might be for you if:

You are detail-driven, deadline-oriented, calm under pressure, an excellent problem solver, organized and meticulous with your files, collaborative, curious, a keen learner, and want to be part of an amazing, fun team.

You identify as a Media Designer, 3d Artist, or CG Wunderkind.
You have deep knowledge in 3DS Max, KeyShot, VRED, and are adept at After Effects and Photoshop for postproduction.

You are compelled to tackle challenging tasks and will dedicate hours researching and learning how to master the most difficult renders.

You are a time-management whiz: knowing not only how to do something, but knowing how long it will take.

You have at least 3-4 years hands-on experience in a commercial agency or the gaming industry, and a focus on product.

You hold a BS or BA in Computer Graphics, 3D Animation/Modeling, Fine Arts or Motion Graphics.

Extra credit: you have basic 3d modeling skills in Alias or Rhino, and understand NURBS modeling.
