Lead Artist

  • Location: London
  • Salary/rate: £30,000 - £60,000
  • Date posted: 17/07/18
  • Job reference: 6659
  • Permanent
This vacancy has now expired.

We're partnered with a VR Games start up, based in Central London. They're in the enviable position of already having a product, built be a close knit team, which has sold well. Using this success, they have secured further funding and are looking to develop new titles in the Fitness and VR Space. To that end, they are growing their UK team in London. One of their first steps will be to bring their Art in-house. It is currently being done using outsourcers, with great results, but they want a Lead Artist to take control of the art style and processes in the studio and, over time, build an art department. This is a superb role for an aspiring Art Director.

You will still need to be hands-on, concepting, creating assets in 2 and 3d, and managing the current outsourcers. Over time this role will change though. 

To be considered for this role, we'd be looking to see:

  • Strong games background, ideally in a Lead or Senior art capacity
  • Worked on a number of shipped games, from start to finish
  • Experience with the Unity 3D engine
  • Some interest or experience in VR or Fitness would be great 

Salary is from £50-£60k, plus numerous benefits including stock options. As an early member of this growing team, your time and loyalty in these early days will be rewarded. On a practical level, they will be flexible on working arrangements and other perks.
