  • Good understanding of technical implementation within games, scripting languages, syntax, and other basic programming concepts, as well as knowledge of user interface (UX/UI) in games 
  • Keen understanding of marketing, market research, and customer segmentation to capture the target audience and relate to their needs and motivations 
  • Good ability to understand art and communicate ideas visually in all areas of 3D art creation, use, and conversion
