Job Description

Welcome to Gram Games!

We are the studio behind some of the most popular mobile games in the world, such as 1010!, Six! and Merge Dragons!. We do things differently here: we work in small self-managing teams, enabling you to have an incredible amount of ownership, autonomy and impact. We'll never ask you to abandon your craft and just focus on managing others or workload. At Gram everyone is expected to have a razor-sharp focus on what creates tangible impact: impact on their team, impact on their work environment and impact on the overall company strategy. If you are motivated by autonomy, constant improvement, collaboration and the sense of belonging this is the right job for you.

Let yourself go. Amaze us.

Essentially...

Art is at the very core of our games. Game art is the first thing users encounter when opening one of Gram's games, and it’s one of the primary things that keeps them engaged, coming back to discover the game again and again. As a Senior Game Artist, you would jump onto one of our newest, exciting projects, and create out-of-this-world assets to ensure the highest degree of player engagement. In this role, you'd be expected to be a fount of knowledge when it comes to the aesthetics of our games - you would use your game art expertise and your extensive creative skill to develop and scale the project's visual identity, and make the game look the best it can.
