We are looking for a Lead Technical Artist to join Sharkmob on a new unannounced project! Someone who will lead the team working with Houdini and Unreal Engine and help us create a wide range of procedural tools as we advance.
You will build and lead a team that the artists thank in their prayers as you save them hours and hours of boredom by creating tools that automate tedious, repetitive tasks. You enjoy designing procedural pipelines as well as growing the individuals in your team.
We are looking for someone who likes solving complex, hard-to-define problems and working with talented artists and designers.
You will work with areas like procedural world generation, tool creation (in Houdini and Unreal Engine), and generating content to be used in the game. Beyond that, you will research and develop art pipelines to help bring your coworkers' ideas to life!
There are also many opportunities to bring your ideas on how we can use proceduralism to improve the game as we are always looking for innovative solutions.
- You have shipped at least one AAA game as Senior or Lead Technical Artist.
- Experience working with procedural setups in Houdini.
- You have experience leading a team of Technical artists.
- You have previous professional experience working with a game engine.
- Excellent communication skills as you will work closely with your team and other departments.
- Strong problem-solving and prototyping abilities. You will face tasks and requests that are not clearly defined and work together with other departments to determine what you can achieve and how best to achieve it.
- A true team player since a large part of our job is solving problems for others, and you need to be able to support artists/designers with their work.
