Volok Games is looking for a Technical/VFX artist to join our team. The ideal candidate should have knowledge about side scrollers, or metroidvania, games. A portfolio or demo reel should be readily available upon request. Our game's art direction currently falls into the sci-fi realm; someone who enjoys working with futuristic VFX is a huge plus!

We are looking for someone who:

  • Can create, and optimize, custom shaders that are able to run on PC and consoles
  • Can create quality particles, VFX, and textures
  • Can work comfortably in a fully remote team-based environment
  • Is strongly familiarized with Unity Particles and Shaders
  • Enjoys working and collaborating with a small team of passionate artists


  • 2+ years experience in the gaming industry
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • BS in design, or a similar field, is a huge plus

Volok Games is fully remote, and this includes worldwide. We are open to working with someone overseas, and have experience hiring people who live in the EU. Our office hours are between 10am-6pm EST.

Our first project, Manticore, is a fast paced 2.5D metroidvania shooter. Our core belief is that gaming should be accessible to everyone; as a result, Manticore's controls allow players of all skill levels to pick up the controller and have fun while offering deep and competitive gameplay for veterans of the genre.

We've also made sure to keep customization expansive. With 13 upgradeable weapons, multiple suit upgrades, and genetic animal powers, the options are endless and offer a fresh, exciting gameplay experience every time!

We can't wait to hear from you!

Confident in your skills, but don't currently have the experience? Feel free to apply anyways; we're open to working with someone with less experience, as long as you have a portfolio to show!
