Outsource Artist

At Ripple Effect, an evolution of Battlefield’s DICE LA, we are building the AAA studio of tomorrow. Our Los Angeles-based game studio is dedicated to crafting community-first experiences powered by cutting-edge technology and genre-defining innovation. We welcome artists of all levels and backgrounds to join us either in-studio or fully remote as we build the next great Battlefield experience.

Our Mission: Quality, honesty, and curiosity are of the utmost importance to us. The best artists are “forever students,” and it’s important that our devs grow in their crafts, discover new paths, and push one another towards mastery. We reach excellence through tireless iteration and we seek developers with diverse experiences who will enrich our studio’s creativity.

You will help onboard vendors, create asset briefs, review their submissions, and polish their pieces to final. In addition, you will be deployed across our internal art teams to support their needs at various points of the project allowing you to learn a variety of craft disciplines throughout your tenure. This role reports to our Art Line Manager based in our studio in Los Angeles, California.

We are proud of the great perks we offer like comprehensive health and benefit packages, tuition reimbursement, 401k with company match, and of course, free video games.
