  • Create high quality shaders and materials for use in a Unity 3D project
  • Recommend and execute both aesthetic and technical modifications to lighting, atmosphere, materials, shaders, cameras, or other settings to achieve a beautiful result
  • Be aware of new graphics techniques and eagerly pursue major improvements to the overall graphical quality of the project
  • Serve as a liaison between artists and engineers to ensure the art team has full access to and understanding of all available procedures, tools, and technologies
  • Contribute to advancing pipeline processes, standards, and tools for current and future projects
  • Troubleshoot and resolve graphics-related technical issues including lighting problems, graphics artifacts, z-fighting, and other visual glitches

Qualifications

  • Thorough understanding of current capabilities of Unity 3D
  • Strong aesthetic instincts and desire to relentlessly improve the appearance of a game until it ships
  • Proven track record of guiding other projects to a high level of visual quality
  • Excellent communication skills – you should be able to clearly articulate your design decisions and work effectively with designers, artists, engineers, testers, and others.
