Senior Environment Artist

Santa Monica

Riot Games was established in 2006 by entrepreneurial gamers who believe that player-focused game development can result in great games. In 2009, Riot released its debut title League of Legends to critical and player acclaim. As the most played online PC game in the world, over 67 million play every month. Players form the foundation of our community and it’s for them that we continue to evolve and improve the League of Legends experience.

We’re looking for humble but ambitious, razor-sharp professionals who can teach us a thing or two. We promise to return the favor. Like us, you take play seriously; you’re passionate about games. We embrace those who see things differently, aren’t afraid to experiment, and who have a healthy disregard for constraints.

That’s where you come in.

As Senior Environment Artist, you’ll channel your wealth of concepting, modeling and texturing experience to help us tell the story of the League of Legends universe. You’ll apply your leadership skill and masterful digital brushstroke when leading the team responsible for ideating and crafting the next wave of visual improvements to League of Legends environments, including Summoner’s Rift, the most watched esports arena in the world.

You are:

  • An veteran: you’re a modeling and texturing master that can lead juniors in the craft forged by five years in a AAA development environment
  • Always up for co-op: whether leading or collaborating, you’re at your best when blazing trails with other daring, industrious pros
  • Digital and analog: your storytelling skills span the tableau of tools, from charcoal to Cintiq; your art software skills are top-notch, most of all with Maya and Photoshop
  • Cleverly creative: you approach creative risks with a grin rather than a grimace and can fashion a new approach when a problem crops up or there’s a shift in direction
  • A player-focused gamer: as a passionate gamer yourself, you know how to match player curiosity with imaginative environments and worlds

You will:

  • Concept and create dynamic environments within the League of Legends universe
  • Flawlessly navigate a cross-functional dev environment that includes artists, designers and engineers to ensure evocative imagery intersects with unique gameplay
  • Define how environmental elements interact with players and function within the game world they live in
  • Give and receive constructive and creative feedback across art disciplines; mentor a team of 3D artists, helping them meet and raise the quality bar of Riot’s artistic efforts
