Job Description:

The Hearthstone team is looking for a versatile and creative Lead FX Artist to create evocative visual effects in the fun and whimsical, hand-painted style that is synonymous with Hearthstone. You’ll develop real time FX from concept to implementation and work to maintain a consistent aesthetic across all the FX in the game, create benchmark assets, workflows, and help the FX team learn and grow. The ideal candidate has a strong grasp of color, texture, shape and timing as relates to FX and the ability to translate the Art Director’s vision into actionable feedback for the team.

Do you have extensive experience working with in-game FX systems and 3D packages to build everything from fire, slime, and magic to pack openings and legendary summons, as well as a general understanding of good gameplay communication? Do you also have a deep understanding of the principles of anticipation, follow-though, staging, and other facets of animation? If so, we need you!

If you’re ready to work alongside a team of the best artists, engineers, designers, and producers on the planet and enjoy the support of a company whose culture is all about collaborative game development, we want to hear from you!
