As part of our Game Development team, you will be responsible for directing and implementing the visual composition of 3D environments for an upcoming PC game. Responsibilities include environment composition with pre-made and custom props, high quality environment texturing, and environmental ambience including lighting, weather, and particle FX, in addition to environment performance optimization. 


As a Senior Environment Artist, you will work alongside Level Designers, Concept Artists, and 3D modelers to bring together finished environments that are ready for gameplay.

Experience with Unreal Engine and strong familiarity with its environment-building tools are required for this position. Experience with environment asset modeling, texturing, and PBR is also required.


We use Agile development workflow tools including Atlassian JIRA and Confluence, SVN version control, as well as frequent group chat and screen sharing to coordinate remote work.
