We strive to successfully provide rich game experiences, crafted by talented teams who are curious, take ownership, and collaborate well. We are committed to providing a safe and supportive workplace that enables our teams to make games which will be enjoyed worldwide across mobile, desktop, and console.

About the role

We’re looking for an experienced Senior Concept Artist to join our Visual Development team. You’ll be particularly skilled working in a realistic style, and will operate alongside other directors, designers, and production staff toward the design and implementation of top-shelf solutions for our flagship IPs. You’ll enjoy working within a highly creative, team-focused environment and be thoughtful, reliable, and versatile in your work. You should enjoy a fast-paced environment and the challenges that entails.

The Senior Concept Artist's responsibilities include:

  • Providing expertise, support and capacity to the discipline of Concept Art and the wider Visual Development team at PikPok.
  • Producing conceptual, illustrative and/or production-ready artwork, through a variety of means and toolsets - eg: Photoshop, Illustrator, Maya, etc.
  • Working alongside the Studio Art Director, Visual Development team (and independently as required), to help establish and drive the visual direction of our products: providing review and critique, mentorship, and producing artwork alongside and for project teams.
  • Collaborating with project teams, as well as facilitating and maintaining constructive lines of communication and workflows.
  • Participating in the design and production of material in support of the publishing arm of PikPok – generally graphic art, design and illustration as required (icons, layout and typography for advertising material, and so on).
