We want someone with a breadth of knowledge and experience in 3D art, particularly in environments, but also someone who is keen to experiment with a range of styles and processes. Experience with characters and objects is a plus.

Who are we?

We're a games studio based in Dublin, Ireland. Recently we released If Found... for PC, Mac, iOS & Switch, a narrative game about family, friends, memory, erasure and being trans.

Our team has a diverse background of identities, and we strongly value this. We particularly welcome applicants excited to work in this environment.

Qualifications

  • Experience in asset creation for real-time rendering
  • Experience with texturing and lighting
  • Experience working with game engines
  • Can work remotely, familiar with using discord and other online communication tools for project management.
  • Can work close to GMT time-zone
  • Has shipped a game before, commercial or personal

Ideal Qualities

  • 3+ years experience in games.
  • Experience with level design
  • Experience with Unity
  • VFX experience a plus
  • Comfortable with iteration and works well giving and receiving feedback.
  • Someone who enjoys autonomy, and has a strong sense of initiative to self-direct at times
  • Always open to learning. We don’t expect applicants to know everything but do expect them to be excited to learn new tools, techniques and to experiment with them
  • Interest in experimental indie games, and experimental narrative media in general

Responsibilities

- Create environments, terrain and models for the game

- UV/Texturing of models

- Integrate art within the game/engine.

- We are a very small team of only 5 or 6 people so you will have a lot of responsibility for the aesthetic direction of the game.

- Collaborate with our illustrator and turn her art into models and textures

- Collaborate with level designers, programmers, etc.

Timeline

We’re going to be considering applicants on a rolling basis until mid-December. We’ll try to reply within a couple of weeks.

From the start of December some applicants may be asked to do a day or a few days of paid trial work to see if we’re the right fit for each other. Followed by a trial month in January.

The role will continue up until early 2022, with the possibility for longer.

Salary: 36k euro for 4 days/week.

Send your cover letter, portfolio/website, and resume to: dreamfeelx@gmail.com with the subject “3D Artist application - [Your name]”.
