Lead 3D Artist

Remote New Media
Why Join Us?
To put it simply: you’ll work with great people, making top-tier, high-quality interactive experiences with the best IP in the world. We set out to build an uncompromising vision for a game studio and found the ideal partner in Skydance to extend its reach and sustainability. To fully deliver our vision for these games we assembled the best external development, publishing and IP partners in the world. Our internal team will remain small relative to other AAA developers so we can all maintain the highest levels of familiarity, trust and effectiveness. You’ll be surrounded by industry veterans, currently with an average of 20 years’ experience, in a climate of mutual trust, maturity, candor and playful collaboration. We believe that life’s too short to work with difficult people, regardless of talent, so exceptional character and strong principles are requirements for every role. Your days will be focused on solving creative and technical problems, not navigating corporate politics. 
 
We are open to a spectrum of remote working and office scenarios for staff. This will include regular team get-togethers and travel throughout the year, so we benefit from the best of both worlds – flexibility and efficiency as well as team cohesion.
What You’ll Do:
We are searching for a Lead 3D Artist to join our core team developing a high quality AAA single-player story-driven action-adventure game built using the Unreal Engine.
Our art team is small, and we want to expand it with someone capable of bringing deep expertise in 3D art while also being able to guide a distributed team of internal and external artists to get results. We only hire talented, collaborative people with strong communication skills who are laser focused on achieving excellent results.

In This Role, You Will:

  • Create photo realistic 3D assets using photogrammetry and 3D packages
  • Drive 3D asset creation in collaboration with the Art Director, Production, and external teams
  • Ensure the visual and technical excellence of 3D assets
  • Streamline 3D asset workflows and pipelines
  • Plan, prioritize, and track 3D asset production, including props, architecture, weapons, vehicles and vegetation
  • We Are Looking for People Who:

  • Have at least 5 years of game development experience
  • Have shipped at least 1 AAA game title
  • Thrive in a self-driven environment
  • Are organized, detail-oriented, and proactive cross-disciplinary collaborators
  • Have excellent interpersonal, communication, time management and long-term planning skills 
  • Strongly understand organic and hard surface modelling 
  • Are experts in PBR, Photogrammetry, Zbrush, and Photoshop 
  • Are passionate for creating cinematic photo-realistic content 
  • Can find and adapt real world references to game assets
  • Create 3D assets to a high degree of believability
  • Strongly understanding game engine limitations and strengths
  • Unreal Engine experience is a plus
  • What is Skydance New Media?
    Amy Hennig (co-creator of the Uncharted series) and Julian Beak, both 30-year veterans in the game industry, have built a new studio with Skydance Media (the studio behind Mission: Impossible, Top Gun: Maverick, The Old Guard, Grace and Frankie) that is laser-focused on premium action-adventure games with rich, compelling stories. Our first productions will tap into the traditions of adventure cinema to create an engaging, energetic experience that captures the spirit of TV and film to excite both gamers and non-gamers alike. These games will be best-in-class for both visual fidelity and innovative gameplay on the latest console platforms and PCs.
