Senior 3D Artist - VR Games
(Generalist, or Specialist in Environment, Hero Assets or Lighting)


Digital Lode seeks senior 3D Artists. Become an integral part of our team of skilled developers and help us create exciting VR stealth action experiences.

Digital Lode is an award-winning indie VR game developer based in Footscray, Melbourne. We’re a growing team of 24, working in a super fun, innovative start-up style environment. Our first released title, “Espire 1: VR Operative” is an epic VR stealth action game that has launched us into our next project and set us on the path of making consumer VR games. We’ve been at this since 2017 and are specialists in creating ‘standalone VR’ experiences. We see this as the perfect time to be delving deep in VR, where there are so many opportunities to prototype & establish new brands, and reimagine our favourite game mechanics in this new medium. 

About you

You have a passion for games and immersive media. You’re a seasoned 3D artist who has worked in games for at least 3 years, and has worked on at least 2 titles. You are either a generalist or a specialist in environment art, hero assets or lighting. You are familiar with the 3D production pipeline and can own an asset from block-out to being fully optimised and game ready.

About us
