Job Description: Lead 3D Environment Artist

Department: Art

~ The Studio

Compulsion Games is a first-party game studio and subsidiary of Microsoft’s Xbox Game Studios, located in Montreal, Canada.

As a boutique team of industry veterans, we trust and respect each other, with shared love and passion for our craft. Our games have won praise for their art, music, world-building and engaging narratives and we are now excited to be working on our next major project, which we can’t say too much about just yet.

You may have noticed we take on troublesome themes and create characters with compelling, human flaws. Our story-telling typically has a healthy dose of darkness and comedy thrown in for good measure.

~ The Role

We would like someone to have experience leading and mentoring a competent team of Artists. You'll be working directly with animation and design teams to develop assets, characters and environments that will reveal the visual direction and purpose of our game world, so being able to develop your team and compliment the Art Director in fulfilling the studios' vision and artistic values is key.

~ The Person

We’d like you to have at least 5+ years of experience in the games industry, preferably working with PC and/or Console Games and we expect you to have shipped at least 1 to 2 high-quality games in your current or recent position. With this exposure, we expect you to understand the fundamental principles of working in a diverse and multi-disciplinary team and the life-cycle of a successful project.

Specific Role Requirements:

  • At least 5 or more years of experience working in Games.
  • You should be a highly skilled and accomplished Artist from either Environment, Concept or Character background, with the ability to lead and nurture other team members.
  • Experience with Unreal Engine 4 is highly preferable, and any competencies with Maya, Blender and other 2D/3D packages would be beneficial.
  • We would hope you are someone that plays games regularly and understands the fundamentals that make Gameplay ‘feel’ good.
  • Your technical skills should be high-quality, combined with excellent communications skills in order to collaborate effectively with a diverse group of artists, designers and animators.

~ Our Culture

Compulsion Games is a quality-led studio with a humble team, that enjoys experimenting with an artistic approach to making games. We like to hire people who are drawn to our core values of trust, autonomy, harmony and craftsmanship; living up to those values and sharing our vision.

The team is passionately committed to championing both diversity and accessibility for our people and our players; a consistent value throughout the Xbox Game Studios group. Therefore a core part of our hiring process is ensuring new hires are well-aligned in order to build a harmonious team and company. We care deeply about our team and their wellbeing, so you’d be joining a close-knit group who are creative, inclusive and care about developing one another.

This is a full-time position, with full salary and studio benefits based in our new Downtown location, by Atwater Metro station. Since Covid-19, we have shifted the studio to a hybrid, or full-time remote working setup for employees, providing you are already based in or willing to relocate to Canada.
