We are looking for an experienced “Art Director” (exceptional anime portfolio required) who won’t just direct, concept, or share opinions on our games, but will also execute and produce game art themselves. Gaming and anime is more than just a job for you; it’s a passion, lifestyle, and healthy obsession. You’re motivated to create the most engaging worlds mobile has to offer, and bring to life characters that players will love for generations to come. You know the best way to do this is hands-on, surrounded by software engineers, artists, designers, and others who share your passion and drive.
People successful in this role are intellectually curious and comfortable filling many art roles on a team with minimal oversight. You thrive in an entrepreneurial and independent environment, and you’re not afraid to take calculated risks and trust in others. For this project, you should love anime and consume a lot of it — we are excited about pursuing an art form that is similar to many popular series from over the last decade. Our team is setting out to create an amazing new world, and we hope you will join us for the journey!
