Job Vacancy Background
Work on ground-breaking multiplayer titles, push the boundaries of games technology and virtual worlds, or get to grips with some of the world’s toughest security challenges. If your ambitions are high, we’ll give you the tools, support and culture to take them even higher.
We’re leading the way in defining what the metaverse can be. This is where you get to explore interconnected, immersive, exciting worlds that have never been seen before and where you decide what the future looks like. Are you ready?

Your Opportunity:

  • Have heavy involvement in the creation of Character Art processes, pipelines, and guidelines.
  • Give constructive critique on the quality of the Character Art assets within the game.
  • Display a high degree of discipline in following the Character Art processes.
  • Create high quality Character Art content within industry standard timelines.

  • Character Heads, Hair, Clothing/worn equipment & Shaders (e.g. skin, hair, clothing types etc.)
  • Generate high quality content for user acquisition and engagement, e.g.: marketing assets.

Why You’re Made for This:

  • Expert in a Character Art Role with shipped products that show an end-to-end understanding of the process.
  • Excellent 3d character modelling skills and techniques (both high-resolution and game-ready) and texturing skills and a strong understanding of shaders and their best uses, as well as an understanding of how to set character assets up in UE4, optimise them and strike a balance between performance and visual quality.
  • Excellent understanding of form and anatomy and how they relate to in-game characters, help to define interesting silhouettes and convey character and personality.
  • Excellent in identifying issues and proposing solutions that improve Character Art processes or the discipline in general.
  • Excellent skills in one or more common Character Art packages: Autodesk Maya, Zbrush, Substance Painter, Marvelous Designer, Photoshop, Unreal Engine (UE4)
