Job Description

We’re on the hunt for a talented 3D Artist/Character Designer to work with us, creating new beloved characters across all our games and platforms. You’ll work with our 2D illustrator to help interpret sketches and ideas into low poly, highly emotive characters. You’ll report to the 3D Lead and Studio Art Lead. You’ll have to be able to stay within a defined style for our existing brands as well as get a bit creative and chart new directions for our brand new games. We’d love to have a bit of a generalist to tackle whatever 3D challenges we throw at them, but where you really shine is characters. You’ll need experience with 3DS Max.

Please include a portfolio with relevant work, clearly indicating work created by you.
