Wanted: Artist

The thing is...

It doesn't matter if you're calling yourself a visual artist, animator or specialized designer for characters, level art, concepts, UI, game designer, or being senior, junior, minior or grand master superior: you’re all welcome to apply for a position here at Easy Trigger. You see, we're a small team, and you will probably work with all of the above one way or another. This flexibility is what makes it fun working in a small studio. However, we are right now in a project demanding pixel graphic style so showcasing this is meritorious.

Working at Easy Trigger means responsibility, freedom, and kindness, it’s very important that you should fit in such a role. We value an inclusive and creative environment where everyone is free to express themselves and have ideas, free of judgement.

Responsibilities

  • Creating one or more of the following: level art, backgrounds and foregrounds art, characters, vehicles, effects, user interface, menus and other assets
  • Working with key-frame animation to bring our characters and objects to life
  • Collaborating with fellow graphic designers, directors and programmers
  • Coordination with your director to proactively solve problems, in order to deliver on schedule

About you

You have a brilliant understanding of composition, lightning, ambience, anatomy as well as perspective and you know how to create all of these elements from scratch. You view yourself as a positive, creative and fearless person who loves to push the limits, try new things and feel comfortable with speaking your mind. To be successful in this role you need to have a strong artistic sense. Your ability to see the bigger picture makes you a reliable team player and efficient communicator when finding the best solution to our challenges.

It's not super-important if you are autodidact or fully educated. In the end, your knowledge and portfolio will speak for itself.

About Trollhättan

Trollhättan is a medium-sized city that is constantly growing with a rich university life, new innovative companies and expanding residential areas. Imagine your progress of approx. 4 hours gameplay in Simcity 3. Trollhättan is small enough for folks to have a pleasing dialect, but big enough to hold many good restaurants, bars and clubs with interesting artists/bands, cafes, cinemas and shops with everything you can think of. As well as a travel center with good connections, eg; 30 minutes train to Gothenburg and our own city airport with 45 minutes to Stockholm or Malmö.

Easy Trigger Games is located in the center of Trollhättan. We have all the restaurants and the beautiful canal with its green surroundings nearby. It never gets boring here. We try our best to do some fun stuff now and then, like playing games, go fishing or hunting ice bears with big rifles. We’re looking forward to having you onboard and you being part of shaping the studio as we’re constantly growing and evolving.

We recommend that you apply asap; selection and interviews are held continuously. Send your application with a resumé provided with links to portfolios or showreels, and a personal letter in English to this email: career@easytrigger.com
