We are looking for an experienced 3D Hard Surface Artist with exceptional communication skills and an enthusiasm for artist mentorship. Reporting to the External Development Department Art Director, as a 3D Artist you will work closely with AD’s, leads, and artists within Respawn’s Ex Dev department to develop and employ efficient working practices ensuring that all externally authored art content meets the high visual quality bar established by project art direction. Additionally, you will continually look for the most efficient ways to empower the internal artist on their team, and our external partners, to deliver large volumes of content within our tight production schedule constraints, while also maintaining the artistic style and vision our projects are known for.

What you will do…
• Align with game team partners on high-level vision and high-level direction.
• Lead, guide, and educate external art teams on visual quality, technical specifications, process and workflows.
• Own the quality control of incoming assets and manage the feedback and approvals.
• Assist the Ex Dev ADs in internal outsourcing (OS) training, as well as defining and documenting OS best practices.
• Coordinate with Ex Dev Management on addressing vendor gaps, quality issues, scheduling or changes in scope.
• Create and critique briefs and production packages for OS Production.
• Polish and integrate external content on an as needed basis.
• Actively seek opportunities to improve processes and facilitate solutions at all levels in the organization.

Ideally, you will have…
• An experienced eye for artistic quality and detail with the ability to breakdown and communicate complex feedback and art direction clearly using visual, verbal, and written medium.
• The patience, temperament, and creative-thinking, and communicative adaptability required to help ensure constant alignment with external partners often separated by distance, language, and cultural aspects.
• Experience working with external service providers.
• The best people skills. Empathy for fixing the problems of others, whether internal Respawn or external partners, and respect for others’ time.
• 3-5 years of AAA game experience.
• 3D Generalist sensibilities with the ability to constructively evaluate and critique characters, weapons, vehicles, props, and environment assets and expert knowledge of foundational art principles.

If this opportunity sounds like a great fit for you, please submit your resume and portfolio and we will get back to you once we have reviewed them.

In addition to opportunities for creative impact and professional growth which come with being a member of our team, working at Respawn has many other perks and benefits! Learn more at respawn.com/perks.
