We feel that the quality and scale of our products require a unique artistic sensibility; one that seeks excellence in their artistic endeavors, but also one that understands the technical challenges of today’s games industry.

BioWare specializes in emotionally engaging story telling; we want the player to be transported and captivated!  The kind of FX artist that will excel and flourish in our studio will understand the importance of artistic expression and technical boundaries.  Our FX artists create explosions, spells, atmosphere and creature effects to flesh out and define the actors and environments in our award-winning story-driven games.

Creative, technical, timing and compositing skills will be an asset for this position, but most of all you will have a passion and drive for creating work that pushes the boundaries of current game design!
