SEATTLE AREA - IMMEDIATE OPENING FOR 3D MATERIALS DESIGNER:

***3D Artist (in Production Environment)

Looking for 3D Environment Artists / MATERIAL DESIGNERS who can thrive in a steady production environment. You will be responsible for building a vast library of 3D textures/materials to be utilized by our 3D artists in Substance Designer. Competitive compensation.

Ideally looking for those with an eye for detail, and a deep familiarity for photorealistic asset creation end-to- end. Final outputs are optimized for real-time delivery. This position is for a next-level Retail Studio on the path to redefining the future of retail shopping experience.

Are you someone who likes to roll up your sleeves and make things happen? Are you a digital crafts-person who loves bringing 3D assets to life as beautifully-rendered, and as photo-realistically as possible? Are you primed to make an impact on millions of consumers?

Our Studio is looking for a 3D art professional with exceptional proficiency in authoring algorithmically generated textures (Substance Designer) that accurately represent a given physical product (for use in Substance Painter).

***Ability to make highly realistic, procedural/algorithmic (node-based) textures that are dynamically 'tweakable' for 3D artists (create materials with full control and variations)
***Ability to make tileable textures
***You are a Substance Designer whiz, and building pristinely accurate procedural materials is your jam.
***Familiarity with Vector Displacement mapping
