Job Description



Sparkypants is looking for an experienced, multi-talented, self-motivated 3D Artist with a great portfolio. You’re an ideal candidate if you want to be involved with every part of the game from environments, to characters, animation, and VFX. Everyone on our small team fills multiple roles, so this is your chance to dive into whatever excites you and help shape the vision for our new simulation game.

This is a full-time position with salary and excellent benefits.

Who We Are

Sparkypants is a team of experienced developers focused on creating beautiful simulation games. We love creating emergent gameplay and the challenge of developing a rich sandbox that players can spend hundreds of hours exploring. Our current project is fully funded and production is in full swing.

Our team is spread across the US, but the majority of the team is based on the east coast. We’re happy to work with anyone within 3 hours of the Eastern Time Zone. We encourage candidates of all backgrounds and experience to apply.

What You’ll Do

You’ll be working with our art and design teams to model and animate characters, props, and environments. You will work closely with designers describing the game needs, our art director and concept artists developing the vision, and our technical team to get your work in the game.
