Visual Effects ArtistArtillery

Location: Palo Alto, CA

We are looking for a Visual Effects Artist to help bring life to Artillery's first title, Project Atlas. We're turning the idea of a real-time strategy game on its head and looking to build a lasting, iconic universe with an engaging story, compelling units, and ultra-fun multiplayer battles!


  • Embrace our high bar for art and create work that supports the unique style of our game and fulfills gameplay vision.
  • Create a wide range of high quality particle effects, using our proprietary tools
  • Aid us in tuning our VFX pipeline and pushing the boundaries of our engine
  • Collaborate with other team disciplines including art, game design and engineering
  • Develop assets optimized for current systems
  • Troubleshoot and problem solve visual effects issues while balancing art and gameplay needs.

We're interested in individuals with:

  • Industry experience on game titles as a VFX artist
  • Deep experience and understanding of Photoshop, After Effects and other effects-related tools for creating textures and effects sequences
  • Experience working in Maya and other 3D packages
  • Knack for creating stylized graphics and flipbooks, hand-painted and animated effects are a big plus.
  • Working knowledge of game engines and the willingness to drive the development of our own engine and pipeline
  • Excitement toward designing awesome effects for many units in a genre-pushing RTS game with fresh art style

We also highly value candidates with these skills and qualities:

  • Having multiple shipped titles is a plus but not a requirement
  • Creative personal projects
  • A rabid passion for gaming and strong knowledge of games -- love for RTSes and MOBAs is a plus!
  • A strong intrinsic drive to build something you'll be proud of decades from now

Interested? Apply now.
