RISE is constantly looking for talented visual effects artists and administrative staff. If you are interested in working with us, please send us your resume and latest demo reel.

Should you be wondering why it sucks not to work here?

RISE was the first feature film visual effects company in Germany to use The Foundry's Nuke as primary compositing application. Other than that, Silhouette and Mocha are still used for rotoscoping and paint work. Our main 3D packages are SideFX Houdini and Autodesk Maya, with Mantra rendering those pretty pixels. And because we tend to be bored quickly we also use Photoshop, Mari, Hiero, Mudbox, ZBrush, Topogun, Reality Capture, Geomagic Wrap, 3D Equalizer, Substance Painter and many, many proprietary RISE tools that we developed ourselves over the last years.

Please note:
You need a valid working permit for the European Union in order to apply. Unfortunately, we can't assist you in getting one for the time being.
