Blackbird Interactive is a creative-fueled, future-driven, independent game studio where the best talent in the industry can find long-term careers to help grow their abilities while working on a wide range of projects, which encompass world-class IPs as well as our own creations across multiple genres.

In 2022, we announced that our studio is implementing a four-day work week as well as supporting in-studio, remote, and hybrid work arrangements as permanent options to our employees.

Blackbird Interactive is looking for a passionate and experienced technical artist to join our team to be a key part of our art and engineering backbone.

Do you want to build stylish and compelling experiences? Do you love working with a team of talented designers, artists, and programmers to create ambitious in-game content?

Homeworld 3 is the upcoming entry in the award-winning franchise that revolutionized 3D strategy. It will continue the powerful space epic journey of the Hiigaran people through the galaxy while offering best-in-class space combat and visuals. Fans will find everything they know and love from Homeworld, reimagined for the modern age in Unreal Engine: enigmatic megastructures to navigate through and use as cover; jaw-dropping environments on a massive scale, and upgraded ballistics simulation.

You will be part of this high-performing team who can crunch ideas quickly and come up with dazzling solutions to challenging problems. You will have a collaborative approach and be directly involved in the day-to-day decision-making that will help us design and ship a high-quality game.
