Hey there! We’re Relish, a group of interactive innovators committed to improving how people live, learn, work, and play. We immerse our clients’ customers into digital worlds that thrill, delight, and disrupt. We’re a tight, nimble team that does mighty things.

Who are you?

You’ve got something special you want to bring to the team, and you’re ready to join a squad that will nurture it and help you bring it to life. You’re a thinker, a doer, a dreamer, and a maker:

  • You’ve geeked out using Maya (and Unity, a bit) for at least two years, creating animations in a variety of styles — and you’ve got solid experience with posing, silhouette, timing, and weight.
  • You’re confident in your creativity and ability. People call on you when they need to hit the ground running, nail deadlines, and quickly integrate feedback... all with minimal supervision
  • Competitive compensation helps you live, but you live for the opportunity to create something that you can brag to your friends (and strangers) about
  • You call somewhere in Ontario home (ideally set up to work in Ottawa or Toronto, once we can safely collaborate in the studio)

Wait, what? That’s me! Tell me more. What would my day look like?

From concept through launch, you’ll dive into animation in our Living Novel projects, working on world-class IP, making things move realistically and contributing to the creation of engaging experiences

  • You'll apply your artistic skills to create desired performance of digital characters within a shot, conveying body language and facial expressions / dialog
  • You'll use Maya and Unity, specifically the graph editor, timeline bookmarks, animation layers, and time editor to bring characters to life
  • You’ll participate in sprints and team meetings, be a subject matter expert when needed, and boost your team to level-up everything you get your hands on

Yeah, I want in! How do we get started?

We thought you would. We need to see some evidence of your experience animating in Maya, how you’ve made an impact on other teams, and understand where you’re located (or if you’re willing to relocate to be a part of our team). Fill out the form below to apply or send an email out to if you’ve got questions. Limited time offer! Don’t miss your shot!
