We’re thrilled to announce that we’re increasing our Canada-based VFX and animation operations and opening up a new studio in the Greater Toronto Area!
Our fourth North American studio (we also have studios in Montreal, Vancouver and LA!) will initially employ up to 200 people, with plenty of exciting new technology positions, as well as VFX and animation roles. The new roles will initially work remotely, with the search for a physical studio location in the Greater Toronto Area already underway.
The opening of our Toronto studio is just part of a wider expansion across Canada. We’ll also be expanding our existing Vancouver and Montreal offices with up to 300 new roles, including up to 100 new positions for our DNEG Animation team as it opens its doors in Vancouver.
If you’re interested in joining our teams in Canada you can find all the new opportunities and job postings on our careers page.
Commenting on the expansion, our CEO Namit Malhotra said:
“We are further investing in Canada by creating up to 200 new jobs in the Greater Toronto Area with the opening of our fourth North American studio. We are also continuing to build out our studios in Vancouver and Montreal to support our upcoming slate of VFX projects, and extending our highly successful DNEG Animation team to Vancouver as they move into production on five new feature animation projects. Growth in our Canadian talent and capabilities will help us strategically align with the demands of the entertainment industry and seize upon our new growth initiatives and content creation opportunities.”
Our Global CTO Paul Salvini said:
“I’m excited that DNEG is bringing these new opportunities to the visual effects and technology communities of the Greater Toronto Area. As a resident of Kitchener / Waterloo myself, I’m well aware of the strength of the technology talent in this area. This is a great chance for technologists working in AI, machine learning, UX and across a broad spectrum of technology areas to refocus their talents on helping to create incredible imagery for some of the world’s biggest feature films and episodic series. We’re not fixed on candidates having previous film or media industry experience – we’re looking for passionate and curious technologists who are excited at the prospect of a new challenge.”
