Position

We’re looking for a Technical Artist who will bridge the gap between the issues of creative and development teams. You’ll support artists by providing the tools they need to streamline and support their production. 

 

As a Technical Artist, you’ll be responsible for keeping the artistic vision and the visual world of the game intact while working within the limits of the software systems used on a mobile game development. By using your knowledge in both disciplines, you’ll be advising on technical resources, researching new techniques, maintaining tools and pipelines, and preparing digital files of finished artwork to run efficiently without visual degradation.

 

What You’ll be Doing

 

  • Improve the pipelines, processes, and workflows for art production
  • Provide documentation and mentorship to the artists in order for them to effectively utilize our tools and technology
  • Provide Unity friendly shaders and materials for visual effects
  • Proficiently execute Unity-related items such as animations, UI effects, and audio.
  • Work with artists and other team members to determine optimal formats, scales, pipeline improvements, and other elements for asset export to Unity.
  • Ensure that the characters interact with their environment consistently
  • Train artists and designers on the game's specific palette and other visual requirements so they can produce artwork that's optimized for the project. 
  • Ensuring that every frame matches the game's artistic style and runs efficiently
  • Help decide on shading, texture and perspective models to feed into the rendering engine
  • Determine what rendering tools would suit a particular game's visual themes and supervise the process, making any necessary changes.
  • Keep up with the latest technological breakthroughs and advancements in the game industry
  • Build complex rigging or character systems to help the animation team create graphics that move within the game system
  • Optimize memory and game performance by realizing artistic and gameplay intentions within project constraints
  • Set-up assets in the engine (meshes, animation blueprints, dynamics)
  • Rig characters and props, working with animators to achieve engaging in-game performance.
  • Standardize and improve development processes for production of assets, materials, shaders, LODs, asset streaming, collisions, and interactions.

 

What You’ll Bring

  • Experience at the same/similar position is a big plus
  • Experience in developing content creation workflows and asset integration processes.
  • C# coding expertise
  • Experience with profiling tools.
  • Knowledge in Unity Game engine especially in Canvas UI
  • Experience with UI programming, Graphics, Physics
  • Knowledge of art concepts, design and animation principles
  • Communication skills to facilitate conversations between artists and programmers
  • A strong reel/portfolio showing executed game technical art
  • Experience in lighting, shaders, materials, procedural generation, and character pipeline shader creation
  • Working knowledge of Houdini is a plus
  • Python knowledge is a plus
  • Ability to take feedback and implement useful insights accordingly
  • Passion and desire to create great games
  • Excellent communication skills and fluent or business level English - written and spoken
