  • 2+ years of experience shipping updates and new features to a user base on a regular cadence
  • Professional experience using Adobe Suite (especially Photoshop, Illustrator a plus), have engine experience (Custom engine, Unity, UE4, Lumberyard, Snowdrop, etc.), and have game industry 3D-package experience (3D Studio, Maya, etc.)
  • You're known for not only delivering pixel perfect UI in engine, but leveling up the design and motion graphics experience in ways designers didn't think of
  • You are a logical problem solver who pays a lot of attention to detail and has excellent written and communication skills
  • You are a proactive individual who naturally leans into owning outcomes from start to finish while also having the ability to deal with ambiguity in an ever-changing environment
  • You can "translate" communication across departments (i.e talk to engineering about visual design needs, summarize technical issues, etc), but also have empathy for non technical team members and the ability to empower others on your team

  • Ensure assets/UI are within memory constraints. Able to profile performance without engineering help at senior levels
  • Implement blueprint logic when presentation logic calls for it. Assist Visual Designers where necessary to implement special presentation behavior. Consult with UI engineers on what logic will be in blueprint vs native code
