Hiring Art Director for Big Mobile project

UpUpStart is hiring an Art Director to manage the creation of art assets for a Mobile 3D side-scroller. We will allow applicants to work remotely, but would prefer them to be local to the Los Angeles area.

This is a paid salary position, and will last 10months with a very high chance of a sequel or new IP. We are looking for someone to be a core member of this company, with this being our first of many more high quality projects to come.

Our team is run by game industry vets that have experience shipping addictive, beautiful and massively successful titles.

Current team leaders:

Kurt Gutierrez, Game Designer

12 years in the industry, most notable titles include:

Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock (2007)
Tony Hawk's Proving Ground (2007)
Tony Hawk's Project 8 (2006)
GUN (2005)
Tony Hawk's American Wasteland (2005)
Tony Hawk's Underground 1 and 2 (2003)
Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2, 3 and 4 (2000-2003)

Andrew Gentile, Game Designer

9 years in the industry, most notable titles include:

Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock (2010)
Guitar Hero: World Tour (2009)
Guitar Hero: Aerosmith (2008)
Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock (2007)
Tony Hawk's Proving Ground (2007)
Tony Hawk's Project 8 (2006)
GUN (2005)

Adam Nerva, Environment Artist

The Last of US (Naughty Dog in production)
Snoopy Flying Ace (2011)
Twisted Metal 3 (2009)

We are looking for someone who can create and manage a style fit for mobile games, and is passionate about working in a very stylized manner.

Requirements:
  1. Strong 2D skills (Painting and concept)
  2. Strong leader
  3. No side projects, we require 100% of your attention
  4. General 3D Maya skills
  5. Unity experience a major plus
  6. Strong Lighting skill (Great mood setting and color sense)

Our engine is Unity, so knowledge in any 3D modeling software that will export FBX files is acceptable, but Maya is highly preferred.

UpUpStart offers health insurance, and we allow our employees to work remote.

Please email your questions, resumes and portfolios to Info@upupstart.com
