Funko Overview

Welcome to the Funko-verse, a world built on pure imagination, a land governed by the philosophy that stories matter, a universe comprised of characters from countless fandoms, a galaxy of once upon a times and happily ever afters.

But what does Funko do?
Funko is a purveyor of pop culture and licensed-focused collectibles company located in Everett, WA.  Funko currently holds hundreds of licenses and the rights to create tens of thousands of characters – one of the largest portfolios in the pop culture and collectibles industry.  Funko’s Pop! Vinyl is the number one stylized vinyl collectible on the market, selling millions of figures to fans around the world.

The Associate Output Designer uses ZBrush to prepare 3D sculpted collectible figures to be factory ready. They will work with leadership to build up their knowledge on basic molding and factory limitations. This job requires daily interaction with other Output Designers, Sculptors, and Project Managers to ensure the smooth and efficient production of all Funko toys and collectibles. They will work together with the sculpting team to achieve the best hand-off between artists and the factory. The Associate Output Designer will report to the Sculpting Director.
