Our ideal candidate should have a good mix of left and right brain skills like: meticulous attention to detail, great communication skills, a tenacious eye for visual quality, and a creative imagination.

Throughout the production process you’ll ensure creative assets are aligned with the creative direction, maintain visual consistency and quality, and are delivered on schedule.

  • Prior experience at a game studio (mobile, console, or PC)
  • Interest in brand development and concepting
  • Understanding of mobile technological constraints and challenges
  • Ability to provide feedback via actual paintovers is a plus
