Cloud Imperium Games is looking for a talented Character Art Director to be responsible for creating the characters for Star Citizen and Squadron 42 in our Wilmslow studio (near Manchester).

This role requires a dedicated and dynamic individual who can excel both as an artist and as a team leader. A leader – to act as a motivational catalyst for the entire Character Art team producing the heroes and villains of both Star Citizen and Squadron 42.

We’re currently developing Star Citizen, a record breaking multiplayer online space sim, and Squadron 42, cinematic single-player adventure set in the same universe.
