Through play and interactive technology, Lingokids delivers premium, modern learning through educational subjects and life skills so kids can thrive as confident, conscious, resilient, lifelong learners — ready for school and today’s ever-changing world.

To help us on this mission, we’re looking for an exceptional Game Animator Intern to join the Game Animation team.

Are you ready for Playlearning?™

As a Game Animator Intern, you'll play a key role in contributing to the visual and playful aspect of Lingokids games, bringing characters, objects and backgrounds to life in a variety of activities with different gameplays.


  • Create high-quality character, object and background animations for children’s games, under the supervision of the Lead Animator and/or a Senior Animator.
  • Attend and actively participate in team meetings, contributing ideas and solutions, and defining the animations required for the various projects, within the limits of the technical and artistic constraints and the defined game design.
  • Rig characters and other elements to prepare them for animation.
  • Export animations, test them in Unity, and ensure all animation assets are optimized for performance without compromising quality.
  • Receive and implement feedback from senior animators and other team members to improve animation quality.
  • Maintain organized source and compiled animation files, as well as clear documentation for animation processes and assets.

Desired experience

  • Currently pursuing or recently graduated with a degree in Animation, Game Design, Computer Graphics, or a related field.
  • Deep understanding of the principles of animation, including timing, weight, and anticipation.
  • A portfolio showcasing animation skills, including character animation.
  • Familiarity with 2D animation software such as Adobe Animate, Spine, or Toon Boom.
  • Sharp attention to detail, ensuring that animations are polished and free from errors.
  • Ability to work in a team environment, taking direction and feedback constructively.
  • A genuine passion for video games and a desire to create engaging and immersive animations for players.
  • Familiarity with Illustrator and Unity is a plus.

English is a must. We are a multicultural team, and we are providing a service in English so, we don't care about certificates, but we expect you to be able to communicate fluently.

Life at Lingokids

🏡 Hybrid work: we promote a remote-friendly culture, allowing flexible work arrangements between office and home. There are no mandatory office days, although we will ask you to come in for events or team building activities.

⚖️ Flexible hours and work-life balance: we care about the results you bring to the team. 9 to 6 and constant commuting is not for us either.

🙌 Feedback culture: feedback is the breakfast of champions, and we take it seriously! We have a real-time and honest feedback culture, and a formal 360º assessment every 6 months.

If you think you don't tick all the boxes, we'd still love to hear from you. Nobody checks every box, and we are looking for someone excited to join the team!

Our culture


We work hard and playwork™ even harder! Learning through play and having fun is also the mantra of Lingokids behind the scenes.

Creative leadership:

Lingokids members work in interdisciplinary teams with a long-term goal designed to feel like a mini-startup where everyone must perform creative leadership. All members are responsible for proposing solutions to problems, and nobody is expected to come up with all the ideas while the rest are just developing them.

We know nothing:

At Lingokids we are humble and one of our mottos is “I know nothing”. But knowing is our passion so we are always finding creative ways to increase our wisdom. That continuous race for perfecting our knowledge brought us where we are. That and that we are fast getting that knowledge.

About Lingokids

We’re the playlearning™ app for more than 50 million families worldwide.

By learning through play, your child will develop skills like creativity, collaboration, critical thinking, and communication.

Join the adventure!
