Nintendo has recently shared its job listings over at Nintendo Pictures, its production house for animated work relating to Nintendo IP. As explained in its recent financial results, its Mario movie plans are just the beginning of a wider expansion of Nintendo media, with hopes to expand its fanbase beyond Nintendo Switch users.

We are currently hiring for various career positions related to the planning and production of animated videos.
