Frictional Games, the makers of Amnesia and SOMA, are hiring a new Concept Artist to join our team.
Title: Concept Artist
Focus: Creating concept art for various props and environments
Type: Full-time, permanent position
Last day to apply: Ongoing process. The earlier the better.
Location: Remote or at our office in Malmö, Sweden. For remote, applicants need to live in a time zone that is +-2 hours from CET.
Building the worlds our games take place in requires someone to first design them. Our concept art team does exactly this, and now we have an opening for you to join us in concepting props for our new and upcoming games.
We are looking for a Concept Artist who will join SecretProject2 to initially focus on prop design and concept work. This is a junior position with no prior experience necessary, though it is preferable. You will work closely with team leads to realize visual designs to be handed over to our 3D artists.
Right now Secret Project2 is entering production, which means that you would find yourself working with established pipelines and practices for a good workflow. Once we hit production your focus will be on concepting the numerous props that help our environments come to life. It is also possible to get involved in the creation of environment concepts, graphic design, etc.
We especially value applicants who are capable of working in 3D or are willing to expand their skills in this area. When concepting hard surface props, being able to create a blockout in 3D is very important to our process.
As a small team, everyone in the company has a wide variety of tasks and responsibilities, and you will find yourself working on a variety of different tasks.
You have to live in a time zone that is +-2 hours from CET to apply, and if you want to relocate to Malmö, Sweden, you need to be a EU/EEA citizen.
The person we’re looking for is creative, self-motivated, and eager to hone their skills. We need you to fulfill the essential requirements, but are flexible with how you have acquired your experience.
We welcome applicants regardless of background, situation, sexual orientation, gender, religion, and similar, so don’t let anything like that hold you back from applying!
