Concept Artist - MetaVenture Studios
RemoteUnited States, California, San FranciscoGame Development - Sandbox
GrowYourBase (GYB) is a leading global metaverse developer across all major worlds and communities, starting with The Sandbox. The Sandbox is a user-generated gaming platform where creators can create assets and gaming experiences to monetize them on the Ethereum blockchain. Imagine Minecraft meets Roblox on the blockchain.
In order to achieve the goal of being the preeminent metaverse builder, GYB is building an industry-leading low-poly and voxel game development studio, MetaVenture Studios (MVS). MVS is focused on The Sandbox, designing and building games and experiences for both internal assets and for global IP partners. MVS’s games and experiences are known for their innovative concepts, stunning visuals, and addictive gameplay. The cherry on top is the play-to-earn (P2E) mechanics that reward users with NFT’s and tokens for their engagement.
We’re on a mission to revolutionize the gaming industry. Join us in the revolution, one voxel at a time.
We’re looking for a highly-skilled 2D Concept Artist to join our growing team. Our ideal candidate is passionate about game development, has a keen eye for aesthetics, attention to detail, and loves to create high-quality inspiring artwork.
Role - As a 2D Concept Artist, you will report to the Lead Game Designer and the Creative Director to ensure the work fits cohesively into the studio’s creative vision. Your work will help the team build out amazing social hubs, games, and experiences in multiple metaverses.
Duties - Your main duty will be creating environments, characters, items, and more that express the creative vision of each project. You will also be asked to make artwork used for client proposal decks, marketing / social media content, and our official website.
Values - Our team cares about developing both high-quality art and a high-quality player experience. We share our knowledge and passion with all the team members across multiple departments. We support and encourage all members in their day-to-day activities.
Growth - We believe in internal promotion just as much as external hiring. We give everyone the opportunity to showcase their abilities as individuals and as team members. Opportunities to rise within the ranks are important to us and we love to see members growing and developing.
Beyond Art - We are a company of real people with different hobbies, interests, and personalities. As a member of the team you will get to work with some amazing people and we try our best to make work-life fun and inspiring. Positivity and a great attitude helps to fuel greatness.
