May 18, 2024

Job Description

We believe in the longevity of games, yet many are abandoned despite dedicated communities clamoring for their survival. DECA specializes in acquiring and revitalizing such games, ensuring they continue to captivate audiences for years to come. While others may see old games as a challenge, we see an opportunity to innovate and solve problems.

As a remote company spanning 31 countries with over 290 team members, DECA has been profitable since its establishment in 2016. Part of the Embracer Group, Europe’s largest publicly traded gaming company, we combine the agility of a small company with the resources of a larger one. Our remote work culture emphasizes trust, flexibility, and collaboration, with a firm stance against egos and office politics. Everyone is valued, regardless of their role, and a spirit of mutual assistance and learning pervades our team.

The role we’re offering is for a seasoned Technical Artist to join our art team, contributing to the development of our acclaimed shooters. Responsibilities include building and maintaining art production pipelines and tools, with expertise in Unity and custom game engines. Proficiency in implementing art assets, 3D software like Autodesk Maya, Mel/Python Scripting, C++, rudimentary OpenGL, and optimizing 3D art assets for mobile games is essential. Additionally, experience in visual effect creation, basic rendering, rigging, and problem-solving is required.

We’re seeking candidates with at least 5 years of experience in technical art within the mobile gaming industry, with a broad knowledge of 2D/3D art, modeling, animation, UI, character creation pipelines, rigging, skinning, VFX creation, and procedural software like Substance Package.

Benefits of joining DECA include a remote-first culture, flexible work hours, weekly remote wellness activities, online language classes, and the opportunity to work in a diverse, multicultural environment with flat hierarchies and an open-door policy. More information can be found on our website.
