REQUIRED SKILLS:
  • Strong understanding of anatomy, color theory, prop creation, and character design

  • An ability to learn and master new tools and techniques
  • Experience in character setup and rigging
  • Working knowledge of Max/Maya, Zbrush/Mudbox, Photoshop, Substance Designer, Substance Painter and Marvelous Designer
  • Ability to collaborate effectively with other team disciplines (code, design, animation, tools)
  • Equally passionate about making games as you are about playing them
BONUS POINTS:
  • Five or more years’ experience working as a character artist on a shipped title
  • Willingness to work with 3D scan data and not afraid of prototyping new tech
  • Experience with blend shapes and general understanding how that will work with character rigs
  • A desire to implement new techniques that increase art quality and efficiency across disciplines
  • Experience developing games using Unity as a base engine
  • VR development experience

 
Camouflaj is a small and dynamic team. Each member holds a high degree of freedom and responsibility. Your tasks will be broad and you will be challenged to learn new systems. You won’t be alone, however – we are a close-knit team that wants each other to succeed.
