Senior Art Director

Salary Competitive
Equity To be negotiated

Full Time – Tampere Hybrid work

Makea Games is looking to appoint an experienced and highly talented art director to join our journey to revolutionize the UGC-space of console/PC gaming. As an AD, you’ll define and execute the artistic visuals of our projects, drive art creation processes and ensure the high quality standards in graphics are maintained.

We’re a game studio that works in a curious yet collaborative way – by creating tools to create games, then giving those tools to the players as well. Each of our title is a showcase of what you can do with the tools as well as being a fun game.

Our (unannounced) first title is close to being unveiled. We can already reveal it is on Unreal Engine 5 and it involves extreme sports. You’re gonna love it.

As a company, we are all about honest, open and collaborative spirit. Relaxed but driven is how we roll! We work mostly remotely with everyone having a high level of autonomy to decide when and how to work. For this position, a competitive option plan is available.

Some of our workplace benefits include choosing where you work from, choosing your own work hours and an equipment budget.

Makea Games gives you the tools to make games. Just bring your imagination.
