Thoughtfish is looking for an enthusiastic VFX Artist (General) to help create the next generation of games for mobile platforms. This person should be both technical and artistic, possessing a strong and diverse 2d artistic skill set as well as the ability to act as a technical art expert – creating in game content, helping produce prototypes, defining processes, and sharing knowledge.

  • Unity experience preferred
  • Strong understanding of movement and timing
  • Capable of quickly getting up to speed on new tools
  • Strong and diverse artistic skill set including 2d art, lighting, effects, shaders, particles, etc.
  • Effective collaboration skills: you’ll be working with art, design and engineering on a daily basis
  • Technical understanding of visual effect limitations on mobile devices

Optional Qualifications:

  • Ability to script/code in common languages like Unity C#
  • Experience working with external art resources, including teams in other parts of the world.

What we offer:

  • Transparent salary with regular, fixed increases
  • A positive feedback-culture featuring “Thank yous”, motivation, and room for mistakes
  • Cool and unique projects
  • We appreciate working parents and the need for a proper work-life balance

What we do not offer:
