SENIOR GAME ARTIST (2D)
Lightheart Entertainment is looking for a Senior Game Artist to join the Mr Autofire team! You are versed in 2D and capable of creating anything from characters to environments. You are also comfortable working with UI and managing the work of freelancers and subcontractors. We’re looking for team players with self-organizing mentalities, with a passion for their art.
About Lightheart Entertainment
Do you enjoy making games? It’s really as simple as that.
We at Lightheart believe in putting the game in the hands of the team - everything from idea to execution, from development to growth. We organise into small teams that encapsulate all the disciplines of building a game whether it’s designing back end systems or making ad creatives.
We look for people who have their area of passion and expertise, but are into other disciplines as well. We find that knowing and understanding what fellow team members face brings better decisions and more happiness.
We also believe that given the right support, a team can self-organize far more efficiently than a hierarchy can. We believe the best decisions regarding a game come from people who are closest to where the magic happens.
At the end of the day, our work is about combining data with craftsmanship, about learning from the market as fast as possible. The market moves fast, and every month we have to take time to learn and unlearn. To make sure we use the numbers to learn instead of wielding authority, we emphasize openness and trust.
What are we working on, you might ask? That’s important, too. We are a mobile game studio pioneering what we call Hypercore - games that are easy to pick up and turn into a hobby before you know it. But words rarely do games justice. Try out Mr Autofire, the first of our games. It’s fun. We promise.
What will you do?
Working on the visual assets of Mr Autofire, including new characters, level environmental art, UI, and enemy art
Managing external freelancers working on similar assets
Working closely with the rest of the team - we don’t believe in departments
Implementing your work in engine
What are we looking for?
Great visual skills, with focus on 2D
Experience with managing subcontractors/outsourcing
Knowledge of 2D animation
Solid experience with Unity
Independent, self-organizing mentality
Experience from previous game projects
What do we offer?
Our compensation covers not just competitive salary and benefits, but also participating in our stock option program. For new joiners, we offer extra vacation days in the first vacation cycle.
We accommodated for remote working before the pandemic and will do so in the future as well. This position can be flexibly remote or on-site at our Helsinki office.
