The Sr Technical Artists manage art production workflows and make decisions on art packages and tools to be used, investigate new production techniques, implement solutions, provide feedback and debug complex assets and often provide instruction by sharing their knowledge with other artists through training sessions.

The Sr. Technical Artist typically works removed from the direct creation of game art assets, setting up the systems of production and solving problems as they arise.

The role of a Sr. Technical Artist is a specialized one. You will show technical proficiency in areas such as lighting and rendering, texturing, and graphics-related programming languages such as shaders.
