Jumbla is an award-winning animation studio, which has just opened a new office in London. We’re looking for a talented mid-weight animator to join the team and work on clients like the BBC, Barclaycard and Netflix.

As we grow in the UK, you will be one of the originals, meaning you will have the chance to shape and develop the kind of studio you would like to work in, whilst being backed by an established award-winning studio.

About you:
