FULL-TIME | B.C. OR ALBERTA

Humanoid Studios is a new videogame company founded on the axiom that creative freedom and independence lead to better, more innovative games. We believe in the power of small, agile teams, and a flat organizational structure, where everyone is empowered to make decisions and help drive the project vision.

We are a Canadian company with offices in B.C. and Alberta, offering a flexible work environment combining from-home, in-office, and remote work – as well as industry-leading compensation and benefits.

Role Description

As an Environment Artist at Humanoid, you will produce some of the very first locations in our new fictional universe, working with the Creative Director and Art Director to explore and define the aesthetic and set a gold standard for quality of in-game art. Initial work will be in support of pre-production and prototyping, and later will move on to producing environment art for the game at final quality.

While we are still under COVID-19 restrictions this role will initially be work-from-home, but per your preference it can transition to mostly in-office either in B.C. or Alberta, as part of our flexible location model.

  • Define a standard for environment art and support the integration and feedback of outsourced assets

Qualifications:

  • 5 years experience or at least one shipped title as an Environment Artist
  • Experience creating high-quality environments, objects, and lighting in Unreal Engine
  • Broad 3D art skills, including photogrammetry, retopology, UV unwrapping, shader editors
