Job Description

Work with an experienced game team (Max, Charlie & others) to lead the artistic development of a new unannounced title. This is quite a new direction for the team and the gameplay is quite developed and rock-solid (not Subnautica-related).

Work with and oversee concept artists, environment artists and game artists to develop and create art in a unique new style. Some of the game's art style has already been developed by the team and studio Art Director (Cory), but there is a lot more visually to develop. We are also collaborating with an exciting new partner to create a game that could make a real impact.

Work in our San Francisco office (SOMA) or remotely from anywhere.
