Integrate interface assets using our proprietary tools and engines, with the help of programmers.

Collaborate with cross-functional teams (design, art, animation, etc.) to ensure consistency to achieve quality.

Carry out the annual evaluations of your UI artists.

Stay up to date on UI best practices, tools, and trends to refine your skills & refresh your knowledge.

Participate in recruitment to build your UI team & foster their growth.


What you bring

A degree in Digital Media, Computational Arts, Graphic Design, or equivalent (or related training)

Around 5 years of visual design experience (or related experience) + 2 years of leadership experience

Knowledge of design tools (Photoshop, Illustrator, and After Effects), game engines (e.g. Unity or Unreal), game limitations, and prototyping tools *

Solid understanding of usability principals & information architecture

A highly empathetic, creative, collaborative, and innovative spirit

Excellent mentorship, communication, organizational, time management, interpersonal, and presentation skills

Flexibility and a whole lot of resourcefulness

Motivation to reach out for feedback and adapt to it

A sharp eye for UX design + a passion for visual communicationKnowledge of project management software (e.g. Jira), 3D software (e.g. 3DS Max or Maya) + familiarity with scripting language and shader writing = very nice to have
