Technical Artist

Category: Other
Company: Epic Games
Location: Cary (United States)
Start Date: immediately

Job Description
Would you like to work at a game company where tools are a primary focus, the tools team is world class, and is always looking to improve the engine? Work with a team that consistently ships multi-million unit selling games? And be a part of creating something Epic? If you answered yes to any of those questions we would like to talk to you about joining our team, where everything we do is Epic.

Epic Games is searching for an experienced Technical Artist to work on multiple new and existing IP’s across multiple platforms. You should have a combination of strong creative/visual aesthetics and technical knowledge (the job is roughly a 50/50 split in these areas). You should also be experienced in every aspect of the content creation pipeline, as well as be able to think outside the box to come up with techniques that work better or faster. Your goal will be to attack the more complex issues that arise when we push the technology envelope, both in production on current hardware, and prototyping for next-generation hardware.

Qualifications:
Extensive experience working the Unreal Engine
Experience in all aspects of creating game content inside 3ds Max
Experience with various software packages including Photoshop, Zbrush/Mudbox
Max Scripting and HLSL or shader programming experience is a plus
Experience communicating on a technical level with programmers, while working patiently with artists on technical hurdles they encounter

Expected Tasks
Material Creation
Making materials for characters, environment assets, effects etc, anything that is overly complex or technical
Environment Polish
Reviewing levels where fog, lighting, colorgrading and fx are tweaked and new features are added
Optimization
Use diagnostic tools to examine current content and identify areas for improvement
Tool Development
Work with programmers on developing new features
Mock up features in external programs or tweak shader code, give feedback to programmers, and experiment with features as they add them
Not only will you be working to improve the current art pipeline of the Unreal Engine, but you will also be involved in the development of that pipeline, for future versions of the Unreal Engine
Content creation
Sometimes the best way to get the job done is to create new assets — modeling and texturing experience are preferred, but all content creation skills will come in handy
