We’re looking for a VFX artist to help us bring to life our next game. We are creating an all-new, surreal yet familiar world and we need someone with lots of magic tricks to make it really shine. This is a six-month contract and applications close on Monday 7th of February 2022.

Ustwo games is a mobile-first games studio and we love to make interactive entertainment that pushes the boundaries of the medium. We are a small and diverse team of about 30 people coming from all walks of life with the aim to craft interactive entertainment with stand-out production values, heart and broad appeal.

We’re looking for an experienced visual effects artist to help us with an unannounced mobile title, for a six-month contract. You’ll be creating striking, stylised visual effects that convey the characters’ abilities and game mechanics, and environmental effects that bring the game’s evocative world to life. The ideal person will have a games industry background with experience in Unity particle systems, and the creation of VFX textures, meshes, animations and post processing effects. Familiarity with scripting and node based shaders would be appreciated.

#What you’ll be doing:

Creating stunning, stylised, visual effects to convey the mechanics and fantasy of the game. Collaborating closely with the art, design and programming teams to take the game’s visuals from concept to final quality. Taking the initiative, experimenting and injecting your own creativity into the game.

#Requirements:

  • Experience working on VFX in Unity.
  • Solid animation skills.
  • Familiarity with 3D modeling tools such as Maya.
  • Knowledge of 2D art tools such as Photoshop or TexturePacker.
  • At least one shipped game title (preferably made with Unity).
  • Lots of cool tricks up your sleeve!

#Desirable:

  • Experience creating shaders, either node-based (e.g. Shadergraph, Amplify) or custom coded.
  • Experience creating unique and high quality shaders that are optimised for mobile platforms.
