Permanent, Leeds, £35,000
£30-35k, dependent on experience
We are currently working with a game development studio based in West Yorkshire who specialise in delivering high quality standards for AAA titles across a variety of platforms. They have partnered with globally renowned studios to ensure their games are taking full advantage of new gaming technologies, in addition to producing their own titles!
They are actively hiring for a Lead Artist to join their well-established art team to execute the artwork for their upcoming titles. You will be working on a variety of game designs for the PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch platforms so hands-on experience in designing for these platforms is essential. They also have a few top-secret titles they are currently working on for the PS5 and Xbox Series X!
You will have the opportunity to lead their team of 3D artists in developing AAA quality environments and assets. Working with the production team, you will ensure realistic schedules are developed and adhered to whilst providing reviews, feedback and encouragement to your team members. The key challenge will be making sure that any produced and integrated assets reflect the artistic vision of the game and meet the quality standards.
Ideally, you will have several years of experience in software such as 3DS Max, Zbrush, and Maya for game development. During your career so far, you will have been responsible for mentoring other artists on your team and you now feel you are ready to take that next step in taking lead!
In return for your skills, they will offer you the ability to further develop your career and skillset through regular appraisals with your line manager. They will encourage you to work on a variety of games that truly take advantage of the latest technologies. You will be given the option to eventually work remotely 50% of the time, in addition to a competitive salary which will reflect your skills and experience.
If you are an experienced Senior or Lead Artist and are looking for the next step in your gaming career, then this is your ideal opportunity.
