We’re on the hunt for skilled professionals ready to dive into creating engaging content for a game designed to captivate players for years. Join our growing team and embark on this exciting journey!

As a community-driven studio, we’re all about developing games that resonate with our players. We believe in the power of community feedback to create immersive gaming experiences that are hard to put down.

And this is where you come into play – we’re on the lookout for an Art Director (Live-Ops) who can seamlessly integrate with our art style, create exceptional content that resonates with our community, and balance creative vision with business needs. Your mission will be to unblock and support the team, guiding them in making the right decisions that align with our strategic goals.

  • Collaborate with production and design teams to ensure a cohesive and engaging game aesthetic, focusing on effective and sustainable art production.
  • Implement best practices for art direction and production, adapting to evolving game needs and player expectations, with a keen focus on optimizing skin and cosmetics production for our free-to-play model.

What We’re Looking For:

  • Significant experience in art direction or senior art leadership roles within the gaming industry, ideally with a focus on AA+ free-to-play titles.
  • Expertise in character and skin design, especially for free-to-play games, with a strong portfolio demonstrating creative and technical skill.

  • Familiarity with Unreal Engine 5 and its art production pipelines, particularly in the context of effective skin and cosmetics development.
  • Excellent communication skills, capable of articulating vision, feedback, and sustainable production strategies across departments.

Nice to Have:

  • Background in concept, 3D modeling, or animation, adding depth to your art direction capabilities
  • Previous involvement in a successful F2P game with a focus on cosmetics for monetization, understanding the specific challenges and opportunities.
  • Skills in additional areas such as UI/UX design, storyboarding, or marketing, broadening the scope of your artistic oversight and contributing to the game’s overall success.

Benefits:
