  • Experienced colorist and well-versed in the use of motion, lighting, and color in the communication of VFX
  • Strong VFX fundamentals (timing, shape language, etc)
  • Highly entrepreneurial mindset ready to wear a lot of different hats as needed
  • Art portfolio that demonstrates both your creativity and craft as an artist
  • You love RPGs

Nice to haves:

  • Experience with another area of game art, (i.e. animation)
  • Shipped one video game from concept to completion
  • A love of the sci-fi genre

To apply:

  • Send your resume, cover letter, and VFX reel (online only) to explore@ganymede.games
  • We’ll take notice of a well-written cover letter that shows you did your homework on our studio and explains why you’re interested in joining our team. We’d love to hear about your favorite games, sci-fi movies/documentaries, and personal hobbies, so tell us about what gets you most passionate!
  • If we’re interested in moving forward with your application, we will contact you to continue the process, which will include an art test.
