Are you constantly working to improve how assets look? Do you also believe there’s a better way to create content for games?
We are looking for an experienced Technical Artist for an ambitious unannounced project here in Stockholm Sweden.
As a Technical Artist, you will have daily interactions and collaborate with our team of artists, coders, designers among others to create enhanced workflows and pipelines for content creation.

In this role, you’ll be joining the Technical Artist team and report directly to our Technical Art Director. While not only working within the craft team, you will also work closely with Artists to bridge the gap between art and tech to fully enhance the content that goes into our unannounced project.
