ABOUT THE ROLE:

Full-time

Atlanta, GA

We are looking for an experienced "Art Director" who won't just direct, concept, or share opinions on our games, but will also execute and produce game art themselves. Gaming is more than just a job for you; it's a passion, lifestyle, and healthy obsession. You're motivated to create the most engaging worlds mobile has to offer, and bring to life characters that players will love for generations to come. You know the best way to do this is hands-on, surrounded by game programmers, artists, designers, and others who share your passion and drive.
 

People successful in this role are intellectually curious and comfortable filling many art roles on a team with minimal oversight. You thrive in an entrepreneurial and independent environment, and you're not afraid to take risks and trust in others. For this project, you probably should love anime and consume a lot of it — we are excited about pursuing an art form that is similar to some popular series from the last decade. Our team is setting out to create an amazing new world, and we hope you will join us for the journey!
