InContext Solutions is looking to hire a motivated and entrepreneurially-minded Technical Artist to support our in-house team of 3D artists; help integrate art assets, build new tools on top of our current pipeline and extend the Unity editor to automate tedious work while ensuring the quality of our content is of the highest standard. We are hiring the type of person that knows and loves the creative process but understands the limitations and difficulties involved in creating beautiful, performant 3D content. Our team is driven to reduce artist iteration time through thoughtfully designed tools that don’t require a 12-page manual to understand. We prioritize and knock out a large amount of technical tasks, all while having an eye for visual aesthetics.
If you were working for us, here are some things you would have done last week:
Who Would I Work With? Who Would I Work For?
The Technical Artist will report directly to leadership on the Visualization team. This person will work closely with all 3D artists and adjacent to all engineering and content creation functions within the company to help us achieve our goals. Expect to change the world.
When will I start? What will I make?
Ideal candidates will be local (based in Chicago) and have availability to start a new full time position in the next 3-5 weeks. The interview process should take no more than 2-4 weeks from initial phone interview to offer letter. We are happy to discuss compensation in the initial phone interview, not to mention our unique and fun-loving company culture, which we all regard as a huge perk of working here. InContext is committed to developing careers and was named one of the Top 50 Generation Y Employers in Chicago.
InContext is all about people. We are committed to finding, training and growing fun, interesting and ambitious people who demonstrate integrity, intelligence and the ability to make things happen. Candidates must possess a theoretical and practical knowledge of software engineering principals to be a fit for this role. At the same time, however, they must be a strong cultural fit, sharing our commitment to building a world-class company.
Outside of the qualifications below, the right candidate will likely dream in 3D, swim in polygons, and transform matrices like no one’s business. If you’re not a hungry learner, hate the bleeding edge (where the cutting edge is obsolete), stop reading and go home, no soup for you.
