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 Technical 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 support and we hope you are the Technical Artist who will help bring it all to life!
