I know you are probably sick of hearing about Canonical job postings but this story is just a little too good to pass up.
Canonical is hiring someone to work on animations:
- To craft transitions and animations to bring the Ubuntu operating system alive.
- Responsible for all creative work on the animations
- To be attentive to fine detail.
- To aid in instilling the internal design ethic by continually promoting design and creating beautiful visuals.
But the line that caught my attention was:
Video game design experience is a plus, especially insight into OpenGL
Sadly this is not a full time position and the video game design experience is only desirable. But otherwise it is all good news as it looks like Ubuntu will be getting even slicker in coming months.
