This is a full-time permanent position with the possibility of remote working. 

As a key member of our Art and Cinematics team, you will be acting as a bridge between the art and engineering teams.

  • Set up and maintain frameworks to allow creative freedom while hitting quality and performance requirements set by the engineering team 
  • Meet with the Art Director, Technical Art Lead and Director of Production on a regular basis to share information and updates, enforce standards, set benchmarks, give feedback, etc 

To apply for this Technical Artist role, you will need 4+ years of experience as a Technical Artist, ideally in the video game industry. You will also require the following: 

  • Experience with Unreal Engine 4.x and 5.x Unreal Game Sync (UGS) and Visual Scripting (Blueprints) 
  • Advanced knowledge of Blender, 3DSMax, Maya, Photoshop, Zbrush and Substance Designer 
  • Strong knowledge of modern 3D graphics techniques
