Ascendant Studios is looking for a Senior Weapons Artist with expert knowledge of Zbrush, Maya, and Substance Painter to create highly detailed and efficient Weapon models. This position relies on both artistic excellence and technical skill to create content that is both polished and optimized for Runtime gameplay.

This position can be remote or in-person. Our new office, set in an old bank (yes, we kept the vault, aka our game room), has just opened after a 2 year renovation, steps away from shops, restaurants, and San Rafael’s vibrant downtown.

Founded by industry veterans, Ascendant Studios is a fully independent AAA game studio committed to making richly detailed, visceral, narrative-driven action games of the highest quality that players will never forget. We are currently working on our first title, an imaginative and original new IP, which we have complete ownership and creative control of.
