Messhof has an immediate opening for an experienced 3D Generalist Artist. *Obviously* this is a remote position, but generally we work PST/PDT hours although our Art Director is based in Spain so please consider applying if you are based somewhere between Los Angeles and Spain ;) We are looking for a highly involved, proactive and versatile artist to be part of a small, tight-knit indie art team where you will wear a lot of hats! If you are passionate as a well-rounded visual developer and see yourself as a single-person Swiss-army, you're our type!


  • 3+ years of industry experience
  • Great 3D modeling skills, particularly comfortable in stylized visuals, preferably in Maya.
  • Mastery with Unity, implementing art in all areas, from worldbuilding to lighting and materials.
  • Openness to adapt to new tools, workflows, and styles.


  • Proficiency in technical art, creating shaders, implementing vfx and any sort of crazy cool demos.
  • Rigging and animation are a big plus.
  • Ability to script basic Maya tools.
  • Artistic training and developed taste.
  • Passion for games


  • You will work with a small team of artists in establishing the desired look for our game, and designing and implementing the most efficient workflows to make it a reality.
  • You will model and create a breadth of assets and take ownership of them throughout the development process.
  • You will communicate effectively with the team, be it needs, potential pitfalls, or timeframes
  • You will make sure the project art assets are kept reliably organized and within technical specs.
  • You will keep an open mind for unforeseen changes, seeing the opportunities to improve.
