Your goal is to bring to life and and push forward the Creative Vision for the fantastical world of BioShock.

  • Execute your work in a methodical and iterative way: Gather references, concept art, iterate on layout composition using blocking, create architectural kits and prop placeholders to populate your environments.
  • Assume creative, technical and production ownership over your environments. Contribute to the artistic vision of your space, ensure that dependencies are properly communicated through Jira, and your work is technically compliant according to best practices established by the Tech Art and Core Tech teams.
  • Create visual benchmark environments and assets to present to your team and develop a process in which to replicate those successes.
  • Create and compose modular kits and collection sets to form dramatic, believable space.
  • Work closely with the level design, modeling, narrative, concept, combat, and cinematics teams.
  • Communicate effectively with team members, production and management to ensure that project goals and deadlines are met.
  • Work with Leads to develop world building and modeling processes, alignment decks, documentation and tutorials, and ensure that quality is maintained for environment art.
  • Receive, give, and apply feedback effectively while maintaining a constructive attitude.
  • Champion of high standards, pushing for progress, embracing change, and challenging the status quo.
  • Able to respond elegantly to difficult creative changes, often late in the process.
  • A positive force multiplier with a great team-player attitude. 
  • Willing to uphold the values of Cloud Chamber.

Skills, Experience and Qualifications:

  • One shipped 3D AAA title (FPS or third person) as a senior environment or level artist.
  • Bachelor’s Degree in Art, or equivalent work experience.
  • Superior eye for contrast, color, and detail. 
  • Proficiency in the creation of high-quality stylized environment assets.

  • An interest in relevant adjacent disciplines such as architecture, urban design, interior design, photography, film, lighting, and drawing is beneficial.
