Cloud Chamber is looking for a detail-oriented - Materials - Artist who has the technical understanding, and keen 3D artistic skill, to assist in the creation of high-quality materials for stylized environments, props, and characters.

You love to work out the technical aspects behind a complex material like shattered ice, magical crystals or flowing lava. You like the challenge of trying to translate a traditional art style into a shader that makes people question if it was painted by hand, or rendered in Unreal.
