  • A leader with experience in providing and communicating vision and critiques to contractors involved in asset production
  • Accurate and precise with complex instructions, but also able to identify opportunities for improvement and efficiency in production
  • Game industry animation experience is definitely a plus
  • Knowledgeable of various industry standard engines (Unreal, Unity, etc), experience with proprietary engines is a plus.

You Will:

  • Work with Art and Engineering leads to provide appropriate reference content, either internally or partnering with our existing vendors
  • Push the limits of the current state of our engine and help expose points of improvement
  • Help manage assets from our contract artists and import and prepare characters for release to our users
