  • Expand your knowledge, and share it.

  • 2+ years of experience creating real-time VFX for video games using any modern game engine.
  • Experience with stylized, hand-painted textures and visual effects.
  • Excellent knowledge of Adobe Photoshop, and of 3D animation software such as Houdini or Blender.
  • A working knowledge of hard surface modeling, rigging and weight painting.
  • A practical understanding of skeletal and morph target animation.
  • Great problem solving skills.
  • A passion for creating and playing games.
  • Self-driven and capable of working with little supervision.
  • Great team communication skills.

  • A working knowledge of Unreal Engine 4.
  • Experience with Adobe After Effects.
