Job Description

As part of the Environment Art team, you’ll channel your wealth of concepting, modeling, and texturing experience to help us tell stories through visually compelling environments. You’ll apply your leadership skill and masterful digital brushstroke when leading the team responsible for ideating and crafting the next wave of visual improvements to new and existing environments.

  • Always up for co-op: whether leading or collaborating, you’re at your best when blazing trails with other daring, industrious pros
  • Digital and analog: your storytelling skills span the tableau of tools, from charcoal to Cintiq; your art software skills are top-notch, most of all with Maya and Photoshop
  • Cleverly creative: you approach creative risks with a grin rather than a grimace and can fashion a new approach when a problem crops up or there’s a shift in direction
  • A player-focused gamer: as a passionate gamer yourself, you know how to match player curiosity with imaginative environments and worlds
