What can we say about the culture?
Flying Bark is a friendly workplace with an open and welcoming atmosphere that drives our unique culture. We’re committed to producing outstanding animation for global audiences but we also believe it’s healthy and essential to have work / life balance. Our approach is to put people before productions and this underlies our sense of community, making ‘the bark’ a fantastic place to work.
Flying Bark is a proudly diverse and inclusive workplace because we believe creativity thrives where people feel engaged and inspired to bring their best to the table. We have an open-door policy on good ideas, regardless of role, and are committed to offering opportunities for crew to step up to new heights!
We love what we do and we take time to celebrate it. Whether it’s Friday afternoon cake time, end of month drinks, epic wrap parties or knocking out day to day production milestones, there is always a reason for the Barkers to come together. We also know the power of puppies, and our team is welcome to bring their well behaved dogs to work!
We’re currently based across two dynamic studios in Sydney’s Inner-West. Both are open planned workspaces which encourage creative collaboration and are well connected to major hubs by public transport.
We have a number of our own IP productions underway while also undertaking exciting service work for one the world’s most recognised children’s entertainment brands. There’s plenty of work ahead, and we are now expanding our talented crew to help make the magic!

Frequently asked questions
What do I need to apply?
Send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and attach your CV, Showreel and identify your area of expertise in the email Header. If your Showreel contains work where you’ve collaborated with other artists please note where you were directly responsible.
Will I get a response from my application?
Due to the large amount of applications we receive we will only contact you if we are progressing your application.
Will you keep my details handy?
Yes we keep track of applications and hopefully we can contact you again if there’s a role better suited to your experience.
Do you hire international artists?
From time to time we do however our preference is to support to local talent where possible. Often visa processing can take up to 2 months and the conditions around employing skilled overseas labour are quite strict, this can hinder our resourcing efforts.
Do you hire Interns?
Yes however we prefer only local students and we’re only able to offer Internships when the studio is not full tilt and we can ensure the best learning outcomes for our Interns.
Should I continue to apply to other roles advertised on your site?
Once you've applied your details are in our database. We typically scan this to gather all the relevant candidates as a first cut. Then we would add to this with artists who have applied to specific roles posted.
