3D Artist (Games)

Austin, TX
Entertainment – Content & Production
Full-time

Rooster Teeth Games is looking for an experienced 3D Artist with excellent modeling and texturing skills.  The right candidate is a game industry veteran who’s well versed in the art of creating assets for a variety of game production needs -- modular environment assets, props, weapons, characters, etc. If you’re a badass 3D Artist who’s hungry to create any and all assets that come down the pipe, then let’s talk.

RT Games is a small, collaborative team with a good mix of veterans (old dudes) and new blood (greenhorns). Our number one goal is to create high quality games that excite and inspire our worldwide audience. We are extremely picky about who we invite into our weird, little family here so: 1) you must be talented at your craft, 2) you must work well with others, and 3) you gotta know how to take a joke.
