  • Understanding of environments and the anatomies of natural and unnatural biomes
  • Thorough understanding of color and color theory
  • Fundamental knowledge of human and animal anatomy
  • Self-motivated and proactive, with the ability to fully embrace a remote work culture
  • Growth mindset - A desire to do your best work without being ego-driven or resistant to feedback and guidance


  • Concept environments and props in 3D, with assets that could then be used for the game.

If this sounds like a job you might be suited for, but maybe you think you're not quite ready, we’d love to hear from you anyway! You never know what's around the corner...
