Are you on a mission to create games that bond players together into deeply invested communities? Would you like to work on something comedic AND action packed with lighthearted and whimsical characters? Do you think a lot about how particle timing impacts gameplay feel, how to mix shader nodes for just the right effect, or how perfectly tuned visuals empower players? Do you analyze, break down, and recreate the best VFX from your favorite games?
As a Lead VFX Artist on an Unannounced Incubation Project, you'll bring fun character abilities and wonderful worlds to life from prototype through production for a completely new IP. Bungie is looking for a VFX Art Lead who can lead and inspire a team to craft layered, expressive visual effects with an eye for gameplay readability that will delight players and contribute to the best-in-class action experience that defines all Bungie games.
As a member of our tight-knit art team, you'll balance craft expertise with a player-first mindset and willingness to contribute beyond your role to improve player experience wherever necessary. Most importantly, you will collaborate with a fun, diverse, and passionate cross-discipline team devoted to building a new universe from scratch at Bungie, and facilitate the communication between Design, Animation, Audio, and Narrative, as well as Art, Design, and Creative direction.
We look for candidates who value joining a cohesive, supportive team with a diverse set of backgrounds, experiences, interests, and viewpoints.
