Job Description

An award winning, genre-defining AAA Studio is looking for an experienced VFX specialist, with exceptional knowledge of creating real-time in-game effects and researching, visualising, and animating natural and spectacular looking effects.
This state-of-the-art games studio will be home to your team of like-minded peers. You will bring a strong creative vision to the projects and communicate this via your developed communication and collaboration skills. You’ll have the ability to build and maintain a vision that can help compliment the look of a game, conceptualising and creating natural and realistic effects, all working in real time, whilst being familiar with and conscious of pipeline issues and limitations, as well as prioritising and optimising VFX to deliver fantastic results in-game.

  • Strong Photoshop editing skills for creating texture effects for use with particle systems
  • Proficiency with 3D graphics, particle systems, physics, ribbons, shaders and post process effects
  • Knowledge of a 3D application (e.g. Max, Maya, XSI)
  • Animation experience
  • An outstanding portfolio demonstrating your particle and VFX work for AAA titles
Ideally you’ll have an appreciation of a broad range of art styles, and the ability to emulate this through art work in engine, using your grasp of the principles of animation, dynamics and lighting. As an experienced professional, you’ll have strong planning and organisational ability, and will enjoy collaborating with engineering teams to develop new technologies, innovations and processes, implementing these into future systems as appropriate.
