Hiring Environment Artist, cartoony (full-time)

UpUpStart is hiring an Environment Artist to help with the creation of a Mobile 3D side-scroller. The position is a paid salary position, and will last 10months with a very high chance of a sequel or new IP.

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

Our track record for shipping quality titles is 100%, we have never failed to ship a game on-time and none of the game's we have worked on have ever been canceled.

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)
Tony Hawk's American Wasteland (2005)
Tony Hawk's Underground 1 and 2 (2003-2004)


We are looking for someone who can nail cartoony styles, and would love a chance to work on very stylized game with industry vets. We want this person to be versatile in a number of art styles.

Requirements:

Strong 2D skills (Painting and concept)
Strong texture painting and mapping is must
Require General 3D Maya skill
Unity experience a major plus
Strong Lighting skill (Great setting mood and color sense)
Basic skill set of Rigging and Animation
Special FX skills a plus

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. We're looking for someone that can grow with us, and that is excited to be a part of the beginning of something big.

Please email your questions, resumes and portfolios to Info (at) upupstart.com
