Prototype Concept Artist - Malta
ART
MALTA

We are looking for an art generalist with passion for gaming and endless creative energy to conceptualise the look and feel on the next generation of Casino games. You will be working on the initial stages of the games, visualizing theme ideas and game mechanics ideas via quick sketches, mockups, storyboards and simple animations.

The purpose of your art is to convey ideas and requirements. Compared to the game art team, this role has more emphasis on creative game design and less emphasis on final polished assets. You will have plenty of support in the process; the team driving the development of new game ideas also consists of concept game designers, prototype developers and Head of Slots. If you are the kind of person that has new amazing ideas every week, but would rather move on to the great thing than spend days grinding out the details, this is the position for you! You will be involved in the most fun stage of the game development, and then hand over to other people to do the dirty work.

  • Previous experience in product development

  • Experience in working with small, agile teams of passionate people
  • Experience with Jira and Confluence
  • Familiarity with the online gambling industry

Objectives

  • Contribute to the visual creation process, but also to the game mechanics creation process
