  • You are an excellent communicator both verbally and visually; whether working on a detailed, finalized character design or a quick, simple napkin sketch to assist another team member.

  • You love making games and can empathize deeply with players.
  • You have shipped at least one successful AAA title from start to finish, or equivalent game development experience.

WHAT YOUR DAY MIGHT LOOK LIKE

  • Meeting with our Game Director, Lead Character Artist and Lead Character Tech Artist to review your most recent work.
  • Syncing with a Gameplay Designer to make sure your character design is aligning with the overall gameplay goals of the team.
  • Jumping into the engine or joining a playtest session to evaluate how your character designs are working in context of the game.
  • Meeting with your team manager to plan your career goals for the next year.
