ATOMHAWK ARE LOOKING FOR A SENIOR ARTIST TO JOIN OUR VANCOUVER TEAM. THINK YOU'VE GOT WHAT IT TAKES? READ ON!

We're looking for an experienced staff member that consistently delivers high quality work that exceeds client expectations. The successful candidate will be able to work quickly and consistently be able to deliver innovative/high quality ideas and polished final art/designs. They'll be able to interpret briefs on their own and also mentor and guide others. They will be actively involved in staff training and development and show leadership by example. The role presents a rare chance to work in a dynamic environment full of exciting new challenges, collaborating with clients such as Warner Brothers, Microsoft, Sony and Lego.

The ability to adapt to a diverse range of styles is key. You’ll produce high quality work with a strong sense of design at every stage of the process, from initial sketches and thumbnails, through to value and colour, and final polished work. An aptitude for creating work in line with client briefs and direction is essential. Your primary focus will be visualising concepts in genres including sci-fi, real world and fantasy, with providing guidance to the wider team as a secondary (but important) objective.

We’re looking for someone with the enthusiasm and communication skills to make them a genuine asset to the concept team and the studio as a whole. As a Senior artist you’ll be expected to mentor others and provide feedback on their work. You’ll also be experienced in leading projects and setting the style when required. We value confidence without arrogance and welcome everyone to play an active role in building an awesome culture within the studio.

We take the importance of work/life balance seriously, ensuring everyone has the opportunity to make Atomhawk a better place to work. You’ll be given the time to develop your skills through ongoing training, peer learning and attendance at industry events, as well as to get involved with the social side of Atomhawk.
