Job Description

Why Join Us?
To put it simply: you’ll work with great people, making top-tier, high-quality interactive experiences with the best IP in the world. We set out to build an uncompromising vision for a game studio and found the ideal partner in Skydance to extend its reach and sustainability. To fully deliver our vision for these games we assembled the best external development, publishing and IP partners in the world. Our internal team will remain small relative to other AAA developers so we can all maintain the highest levels of familiarity, trust and effectiveness. You’ll be surrounded by industry veterans, currently with an average of 20 years’ experience, in a climate of mutual trust, maturity, candor and playful collaboration. We believe that life’s too short to work with difficult people, regardless of talent, so exceptional character and strong principles are requirements for every role. Your days will be focused on solving creative and technical problems, not navigating corporate politics. 

We are open to a spectrum of remote working and office scenarios for staff. This will include regular team get-togethers and travel throughout the year, so we benefit from the best of both worlds – flexibility and efficiency as well as team cohesion.

What You’ll Do:
We are searching for a Senior World Artist to join our core team developing a high quality, AAA single-player story-driven action-adventure game built using the Unreal Engine.

Our art team is small, and we want to expand it with someone capable of bringing both deep expertise in world art while also being able to guide a distributed team of internal and external artists to get results. We only hire talented, collaborative people with strong communication skills who are laser focused on achieving excellent results.  #NewMedia

In This Role, You Will:
Create game environments in a photo-realistic, cinematic style
Collaborate closely and proactively with Design, Art Direction and Cinematographer
Collaborate with external partners
Create guidelines and deliver feedback
Construct environments using 3D packages and Unreal Editor
Create visual targets
Plan for level production, dependencies, and performance budgets
Help drive creation of photo-realistic content sets
Produce level art from sketch to final polish and optimization

We Are Looking for People Who:
Are able to push visual quality to a high degree of realism
Thrive in a self-driven environment
Have excellent interpersonal and communication skills
Are a great communicator and cross-discipline collaborator
Strong understanding of level design and layout
Great understanding of visual composition, shape, color and lighting
Passion for creating cinematic photo-realistic content
Unreal Engine mastery is a plus
Photogrammetry experience is a plus
Extensive understanding of AAA game level development
Shipped a minimum of 2+ AAA games
Strong understanding of Game engine limitations and possibilities
Strong time management and long term planning skills
Ability to find and adapt real world references to game environments
