Lead Artist

We’re looking for a great artist who loves leading a team as much as making stuff. Do you find yourself juggling multiple projects because people keep trying to add you to their team? Do people go to you first for questions or guidance? Have you figured out how to take raw assets and get them working in-engine? Are you a jack of all trades, master of some? Do you regularly put finishing touches on the team’s output, just as often as you give art direction? That’s who we’re looking for - the accelerant that makes an art team go faster, run smoother, and deliver great looking art.

  • Provide direction for external artists/teams
  • Critique your own and others' work constructively, and raise our internal artistic bar
