Cambridge, England, United Kingdom · Character Art


Ninja Theory is looking for an exceptional character artist with individual artistic flair, high end technical ability, and good problem-solving skills. The ideal candidate should be excited at the prospect of working within a small, focused team delivering AAA titles

We are aiming to set the bar for real-time characters. This will involve high end modelling, texturing, shader work and an ability to carry this over into real-time using Unreal Engine 4. You will have proven experience in CG, film or games creating high-end characters. You will be able to create advanced materials and shaders by hand and with packages such as Substance Designer/Painter or similar.

The role is technically demanding, requiring deep problem solving to allow for characters that support real-time dynamics, advanced materials and demanding performance constraints. The candidates must also demonstrate an appetite for cutting edge asset creation pipelines that incorporate techniques such as real-world material acquisition, Marvellous Designer, PBR lighting, scanning technologies and photogrammetry techniques.

You will be part of a small team of experienced and friendly professionals who value collaboration, communication and a burning desire for self-improvement. If you think you would fit in, we would love to hear from you.
