An accomplished Art Director with a strong creative vision? Hands-on skills and leadership to create impressive game visuals?

Who are we looking for?

Metacore is a passion-first game company, looking for an accomplished Art Director. Our journey has just begun, so you will have a great opportunity – and a great responsibility – in shaping how we go about the visuality of our games.

As our Art Director, you’re not only a hands-on game artist yourself but also an empathic leader for our team of visual artists. Together, you have full freedom and full responsibility in shaping the visual style, design and UI of our games as a whole. Ideally, you’re highly skilled in 2D, 3D and/or UI art for mobile, and have a clear sense on how to make mobile games look so compelling that our players can’t get enough of them.


Naturally, we hope that you already have the skills, experience and ambition to create visuals yourself and lead creative work better than anyone. But even more than that, we hope you share our passion for creating and managing phenomenal mobile games for our players. In the end, that’s what Metacore is all about.

How do we work?

At Metacore, independence and responsibility go hand in hand. Our small, autonomous teams have full decision-making power over their games and full ownership of their – mostly excellent – results. But topping charts ain’t always smooth.

That’s why we dare to stumble. Failures keep us humble, teach important lessons and get us closer to success. We crave for constructive feedback. It’s the highest form of caring for each other, and for the games we build.

We also like hearing the feedback from our players. We’re great at assuming what could work but only players can prove our hypotheses to hold true. Falling in love with our own ideas is fine as long as players love them too.

Responsibilities:

  • You’ll be working on the visual style, design, and overall look of our games, making sure our characters, assets, and environments are both coherent and visually stunning

  • You’ll take leadership of the artistic processes to make sure the vision is clear to your team of artists and work with the team on creating in game assets

  • You’ll oversee art tasks sent to outsource partners and manage communication between them and your team

  • You’ll be involved in our current and future projects (including animation, community, and marketing), and ensure that the mark we leave is always top-notch

Requirements:

  • You’ve got 8+ years of experience in game development and game art

  • You’ve got previous leadership projects under your belt in developing visual concepts and ideas

  • You’re comfortable with both leading a team of artists and working alone, creating concept sketches and final renderings and animations

  • You know how to give and receive constructive feedback and how to help your team members grow in their roles

  • You’ve got a proven background using Adobe Creative Cloud and Unity

When we harness our passion to serve the desires of players, chart-topping games will come out. Note the plural: we are not settling for a one-hit-wonder. We’re in this for the long haul – and hope to have you along from early on.
