Full-time Employee, Irvine, California (Hybrid or Fully Remote)

At Frost Giant Studios, we’re growing the team that aims to build the next great real-time strategy game (RTS). We are looking for a skilled, experienced, and driven Environment Artist to help us make our new game a reality.

As part of the Frost Giant Art Team, you will be pivotal in the creation and development of our upcoming RTS. We are a tight-knit group and many of us have a great passion for the genre, but we are eager to welcome someone with fresh perspectives to the team–even if you’ve never played an RTS before!

Because of our relatively small team size, your contributions will be incredibly meaningful. Everything you work on will have a major impact on the final game experience, including shaping how the game looks, our cinematics, and our marketing. We have a lot of amazing art to create and we hope you are the Environment Artist who will help bring it all to life!

Core responsibilities:

  • Modeling and Texturing a wide array of 3D environment assets

  • Integration of 3D assets into Unreal 5

  • Help design and support Frost Giant’s environment art pipeline

Desirable skills and attributes, but not requirements:

  • A passion for delighting players through art in RTS games

  • Prior experience working with Blender

  • Unreal Engine development experience

  • A desire to mentor, coach, and develop other artists and/or contract artists

  • Previously shipped a AAA game

  • Comfortable working in a studio environment in a hybrid setting

  • Experience collaborating with external and remote colleagues, including outsourcing companies

To thrive in this role, you will need technical skills and “soft skills”:

Technical:

  • A broad understanding of environmental modeling and texturing workflows

  • Substance Designer experience

  • Strong comprehension of design principles

Soft:

  • Strong organizational and communication skills

  • Commitment to a collaborative and inclusive work environment

  • Be a problem solver, both technically and artistically

  • The ability to offer and receive constructive criticism across all disciplines

Frost Giant Studios is committed to building an inclusive, diverse, and equitable environment for its team members and its community. We strongly encourage applicants from backgrounds that are typically under-represented within the games industry.

Working at Frost Giant:

  • Work-life balance is a priority for us, as are the health and wellness of our people. Team members have access to an on-site gym and mental health support tools.

  • We offer competitive pay as well as a comprehensive benefits package including paid parental leave.

  • Whether you join those of us based out of our Irvine, California headquarters or work remotely full-time, we want you to be where you’re happiest and can do your best work.

  • Co-op is core to who we are. We’re a highly flexible and family-friendly team. Real life always comes first.

  • Relocation assistance is available.
