About the job
You’ll be responsible for:
- Creating high detail vehicle art from concept art stage to final design
- Ensuring art assets are delivered on time and to a high standard
- Working closely with the art team to achieve desired look and quality across all projects
- Working to a production schedule, manage files and meet deadlines

- A solid work ethic, critical approach and a positive attitude in the face of challenging situations

Not essential, but it helps if you have:
- Experience with multiple gaming engines
- Vehicle design skills in non-licensed vehicles
- Knowledge of cutting edge art techniques
- A degree in Computer Animation, Game Art, or equivalent. However, candidates with a strong portfolio will be considered. Drawing, sculpting and other traditional art skills are a plus.

- Whilst we are based in Liverpool, the role can be 100% remote for the right candidate. We will hopefully return to the office at some point in 2021, and the successful candidate could choose to work in house if they preferred.
