Are you an innovative and agile Technical Artist, passionate about advancing gameplay? We are looking for someone who can take the lead in shaping the way revolutionary games built on Flow—a new blockchain Dapper Labs has developed specifically for mainstream consumer experiences—is introduced to and adopted by new audiences.

You will also develop the entire pipeline for asset creation and rendering for CryptoKitties, the most popular non-financial app on the blockchain, bringing everyone’s favorite digital Kitty to an even wider audience.
As the Principal Technical Artist, you will be proficient at defining and implementing asset creation pipelines, defining tech stack used for development, and managing external assets as well as coordinating with external production teams. You will be responsible for research, innovation, and the technical quality of production. You must enjoy working at the cutting-edge of what is technically possible, be able to implement solutions and disseminate knowledge to peers, and solve end-to-end problems through demonstrated expertise in Unity and Adobe Suite. Every day, you’ll collaborate with a world-class team to defy the limits of what audiences can expect from digital assets.
