Responsibilities:

  • Help build the vision, and windows to the worlds we’re creating together, flexing your imagination.
  • Work within the technical guidelines and restraints of the game as it develops.
  • Coordinate with the art, design and production leads to help accomplish project goals.

  • Be a reference for the art team in relation to various artistic elements and find solutions to complex issues that arise.
  • Communicate and collaborate with key stakeholders to confirm task direction and ensure consistency of work within the team.

Benefits:

  • Weekly bring-your-dog-to-work day on Monday. Yeah, dogs!
