We're looking for a Concept Artist Intern to join our Apex Legends team.

What's it like to be a Concept Artist at Respawn?

 

As concept artist, your day-to-day work may include creation of thumbnails, loose sketches, finished and detailed pieces, as well as orthographic. You will own your work from start to finish while collaborating with other artists, designers, and leads to ensure the work fits cohesively into the vision for art direction and player experience.

Your concept art will help to visually inform and impact the direction of the game, as well as inspire the entire development team. We believe that all our team members are on a path of professional development and making progress in that journey is a key component of happiness and satisfaction in one's work. To facilitate this, our leads work with each team member to identify areas of strength, and areas of desired development, and whenever possible, assign tasks and projects which will inspire the team member to grow in skill, knowledge, and capability.
