Bungie is looking for a Motion Capture Technician to bring high quality, human performances into the digital realm. As a Motion Capture Technician, you will help with shoots and ensure quality performance data is delivered to the team. From characterizing assets to data solving, your efforts will ensure the teams have the content they need for success.

With the uncertainty and rapidly changing circumstances surrounding COVID-19, most positions at Bungie are expected to onboard and work from home for a significant portion of 2021.
