  • Work with our tools developer to create and test tools to improve the content creation pipeline
  • Work closely with the core programming and tools team

  • Understanding of the PBR pipeline rendering system
  • Excellent problem-solving skills working with both programmers and artists
  • Comfortable working within technical constraints
  • Fluent knowledge of 3D modelling, texturing and animation software and pipelines

As a bonus we also look for:
