Job Title: 3D Artist
Location: Remote, work from home in US or UK only

What’s the Job?

We’re looking for a talented 3D Artist to join our studio. You will show strong skills with creating 3D/2D artwork and have a good knowledge of games development. You  must have a can-do attitude and be eager to learn new methods and techniques to achieve the results required on the assigned project. You will work closely with other team members and departments, ensuring ideas are professionally presented and realised in-game.

We are a diverse team and we strongly encourage applications from people in marginalized groups. This is a remote position open to candidates who are based in the US or UK and can demonstrate eligibility to work in those countries.

What is expected of me?

  • Model and texture high quality 3D assets for use as props, character art and environment art.
  • Concept creative ideas for new in-game content that fits into our wider product goals and themes.
  • Work alongside our existing 3D artists to push the limits of the Roblox platform in innovative ways.
  • When necessary, help improve workflows, techniques and content pipelines to help you and other artists create better art.
  • Ensure all assets are beautiful, fit within our established art style and have an acceptable level of performance across PC, Mobile and Console platforms.
  • When necessary, implement your assets into the in-game environments to create seamless and immersive play experiences.

What traits should I have?

We divide applicant traits into 2 categories: "Should Have" and "Nice to Have".

"Should Have" traits are things a candidate really should have, but you can make up for it in other areas. If you’re missing one or two, consider applying anyway, especially if you belong to a marginalized group.

"Nice to Have" traits are ‘bonus’ traits that can improve your candidacy, but none of these are necessary to apply.

3D Artist - “Should Have” Traits

  • At least 1 years' experience as a 3D artist within the games industry, or a similar industry.
  • Skilled in C4D, Blender, Maya or your preferred equivalent.
  • Skilled in Photoshop or your preferred equivalent.
  • Experience with Substance, Quixel or your preferred equivalent. In-depth knowledge of PBR.
  • Able to produce quality work in both high and low poly art styles.
  • Empathy and perspective. You are an excellent listener and are able to filter feedback in a non-reactionary way that takes into account multiple perspectives.
  • Excellent communication skills, able to form positive relationships with all stakeholders.
  • You excel in small teams and self-managed environments.
  • You value diversity and want to work alongside talented gender-expansive people, women, LGBTQIA+, BIPOC / BAME, and neuro-atypical people.

3D Artist - “Nice to Have” Traits

  • Experience working with Roblox Studio.
  • Knowledge of interior and exterior space theory, or other spatial design concepts.
  • Experience in Z-Brush or sculpting software equivalent.
  • A Bachelors of Art or equivalent qualification.
  • Experience working in a large distributed / remote team.
  • Experience working on a free-to-play service-based game.
  • Skilled at sketching, and other 2D art skills.

What’s the Compensation?

For this role, the salary will be competitive and negotiable based on your experience and location. Our aim is to be competitive with industry and regional standards.

For employees in the UK and US, we have a competitive benefits package. Find out more on our Why Work Here page.

I’m ready to apply.

A few reminders: you must be over 18 to apply. Though this is a remote role, you must reside in and have permission to work in either the US or UK to apply. Though we aim to respond to all applicants (including unsuccessful ones), you may not receive a reply if you don’t meet these criteria.

We’re really looking forward to reading your application. Apply for this job on Homerun below!
