VFX Artist (offline)

We are creating projects that erase the line between education and gaming.
Collaboration is highly encouraged here, so you’ll have a direct impact on game design and shaping the overall project direction. You’re not a mindless worker drone here—we want your thumbprints on these collective creations!

What you’ll do:
- Collaborate with Art Director and CTO to produce high quality, mobile-friendly VFX assets for characters, UI and environments.
- Deliver assets within the confines of real-time engine constraints and programming/gameplay requirements.
- Visual effects inside Unity (using particle systems and shader effects) as well as hand-drawn and frame-by-frame animated effects.
- Working with developers to hash out best practices and approaches.
- Providing developers with required shaders, scripts and systems to enhance visual effects within the Unity-based project.

What you’ll need:
- At least 3 years of experience creating VFX for commercially successful games, including at least 1 commercially distributed title
- Expert understanding and experience with Unity 2D and 3D workflows and pipelines
- Comfortable driving the design and style of a game’s motion graphics.
- Good understanding of aesthetic fundamentals, including timing, easing, motion, anticipation, palette creation, values, contrast.
- Experience using techniques unique to Unity’s bespoke toolkit (Particle system, Unity VFX Graph, Unity UI System) as well as more generalised realtime techniques (spritesheets, shaders).
- Love for the challenge of optimizing 3D and 2D VFX assets, balancing memory and performance constraints against a great gameplay experience

- Experience working in combination spaces (3D and 2D).
- Technical knowledge of Unity game development and artistic workflows
- Experience with Unity Shader Graph.

- Links to any Unity based VFX art you’ve worked on.
- Videos, GIFs, JPEGs of your best, juiciest work.
