Firefly Studios

Junior/Graduate 3D Artist (Generalist)

We are looking for a Junior or Graduate 3D Artist with great all-round skills.  This is an excellent opportunity to be a key member of our team, working across a number of exciting projects currently in development.

This is a varied role that suits an individual who is not daunted by the prospect of moving between projects according to the needs of the team.  Your first task will be to convert and improve a range of existing 3D assets to be used in an upcoming project.

At Firefly we like to give team members a degree of freedom over their work so candidates will need to be self motivated, hard working and reliable, happy to work within a team or individually, enjoy responsibility and have the ability to take the initiative and go beyond the brief where needed.

Required Skills

  • Passionate about all areas of 3D Art
  • Good skills in 3D modelling, texturing, animation, lighting and rendering (knowledge of 3ds Max and Blender preferred)
  • Highly driven and well organised
  • Attention to detail
  • Eagerness to learn and adapt
  • Self-critical and willing to take constructive criticism
  • Good communication skills

Bonus Skills

  • Knowledge of working with Unity and/or Unreal Engine
  • Experience of using source control systems e.g. Subversion
  • Good 2D art and concepting skills

You will be required to demonstrate your skills via a portfolio of work. We particularly like to see passion projects worked on in your own time.

Experience within the games industry is not essential but an interest in being involved in the games industry is important.
