Superduper is a web3 entertainment and IP company on a mission to onboard the first billion users into web3. We launched 15 months ago in the fast-paced and ever evolving NFT space, hitting the top 25 of all time in volume with well-known holders such as Steve Aoki, Brooklyn Beckham, Jaden Smith, and Faze Banks.
Overlord is our first hero, consumer facing brand. Within its universe we’re creating multiple sets of IP via characters and stories (the Marvel of the future). Creepz, our first character set, already has an animated series being produced by Seth Green and his production company Stoopid Buddy, multiple video games in development, and a fashion line designed by GQ’s ‘menswear’s designer of the year’ about to launch with a major global retailer.
The business has extremely ambitious product, community, and company growth goals, and is represented by WME and ThreeSixZero. In the next 6 months we’ll be launching multiple new experiences/sets of IP with the goal of creating a culturally relevant megabrand for mass market adoption. You'll be joining at an exciting time as our fanatical global fan base, who already generate over 1bn Twitter engagements per quarter and 1m Discord messages continues to expand, and the company takes off into its next phase of hyper growth.
We have a heavy Blender workflow but are not constraining you to using just Blender. Use whatever tool you are comfortable with as long as there is no friction between what you use and our pipeline. This is an NDA project so specific details will only be given to successful applications. Close to UK time zone preferred but not essential.
Immediate start for successful candidates. Competitive pay and a chance to build something new and unique. We want to bring people on that are interested in growing together as a team.
