  • Own any technical issues that arise on projects supported by the OS Department and extending to our external partners 
  • Support the OS art team in identifying project-specific tools and tech needs and developing an implementation plan 
  • Bridge any asset integration gaps by helping to ensure external art partners are equipped to integrate content to the degree determined by project leadership 
  • Provide general support for OS art team and external partners by documenting/sharing solutions and best practices
  • Work in close collaboration with project Tech Art personnel across Respawn as well as centralized Tech Art support at EA Create as part of a wider, global team working on interconnected tools and systems
  • Stay current in latest technologies and research in your field to ensure our tools and pipelines remain cutting edge

Ideally, you will have...

  • Effective communication with divergent audiences across art, engineering, and management domains
  • Proficient scripting/programming in python and C# (C++ is a bonus)
  • Experience supporting external teams
  • Expert knowledge of 2D and 3D art packages (i.e. Maya, Photoshop, Substance Designer)
  • Empathy for fixing the problems of others, whether internal Respawn or external partners, and respect for others' time.
  • 6+ years of AAA game experience.
  • A willingness to jump into the unknown and solve new problems; the ability to think creatively to resolve technical challenges and limitations

If this opportunity sounds like a great fit for you, please submit your resume and we will get back to you once we have reviewed.
