Stuff We Will Trust You With
Your knowledge of tools and pipelines will give our team what they need to hack and slash through hordes of demons. You will help the VFX team bring life to the world of Sanctuary. Your responsibilities include forging shaders, educating artists in the use of technology, and ensuring that we hit performance while maintaining a high visual quality.
Would you excel in an environment of peers who are enthusiastic about working on the dark gothic world of Diablo, and would you love making phenomenal games, killing millions of monsters and getting loot? Of course you would!
