About Spellbrush

We're a small, tight-knit team of MIT-trained researchers applying the latest advancements in deep learning for anime and video games.

Our AI artist assistant helps illustrators and animators finish pieces up to 10x faster by automating away much of the manual labor involved in shading, rendering, and coloring.

None of the above three images were drawn by human artists. All three were drawn entirely by artificial intelligence! No human post processing involved.

We can also get the AI to animate our generated characters too if we ask nicely enough!

About the role

Skills: Unity

We're looking for a talented Animator / Real-Time VFX Artist to join our small team of world-class artist and engineers in building the world's first ML-powered game.

We're making the world's first ML-illustrated videogame, and we're looking for someone to make some sick special effects/motion design/animations. We're also producing a short anime video set in the same universe!

The ideal hire is a strong generalist to work alongside our talented creative director.


  • Experience in real-time VFX in a Unity-based environment (especially mobile)
  • Motion design ability is a plus (e.g. After Effects, Spine, Live2D)
  • Strong aesthetics in anime illustrations and animation.
  • Excited about the possibilities of AI — no AI/ML/Coding experience needed; we're more than happy to teach you the tech skills and intuitions needed.


As the 6th member of our team, you'll be intimately involved in all aspects of the product, from design, production, and marketing.

  • We're a fast-paced startup with funding from some of the world's leading VCs.
  • Our office based in downtown San Francisco, CA directly next to all major transportation.
  • Market salary + above-market equity compensation.
  • You'll work alongside our world-class AI researchers to develop the next software revolution in art.
  • We have top-of-the-line health insurance, dental Insurance, and all that other good stuff.

Give us a ping if you want to be on the cutting edge of the next revolution in art!
