About the role

We're looking for our team's first Character Artist, who has a wealth of Unreal Engine and artistic experience.

You must be proficient in human character modeling, rigging, and animation. You will also work on creatures / non-humanoids, and be creating modular customizations.

You will lead all aspects of characters in DreamWorld, determining prioritization of immediate work, rapidly executing it, and setting the foundation for future art hires.

You should take this job if you:

  1. Passionate about making and playing games.
  2. Want to be a founding member of a company where you steer artistic vision, product design, and future growth.
  3. Want to have a visible, critical impact on weekly releases.
  4. Enjoy minimal process and deciding what you work on every week.
  5. Strongly proficient in industry standard software like Maya, ZBrush, Substance Painter/Designer, and Photoshop.
  6. Work with the technical partners to define and refine the look and feel of the characters for the project.
  7. Collaborate with Engineering and other artists to develop the character creation and integration pipeline.
  8. Ensure character assets are of the highest artistic quality.
  9. Experienced with Unreal Engine
  10. Portfolio demonstrates relevant skills.

Why you should join DreamWorld

DreamWorld is the massive digital world where everyone creates together. Think Minecraft or Roblox, except one immersive social world.

Here is a gameplay video showcasing 1 year's development progress: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6GxIV2GbUB4&list=PL0x8zBFe0sRiBXnpPWiT_3Jn1HK_e3hWW&index=1&ab_channel=PlayDreamWorld

Look at the software that has fundamentally changed how people live: Search (Google), Social Networks (Facebook), Ecommerce (Amazon). Now think of what will come in the next 25. One of these monumental shifts will be the pervasiveness of the Digital World, and it is our goal to create it.

We believe this Digital World will rise out of the medium that's had the seeds of it for a while, Gaming. So we are building the largest MMO ever. Our gameplay revolves around Social and User Creation. To oversimplify, our initial goal is creating a successor to Minecraft and World of Warcraft.
