Senior Game Artist

Applications have closed for this position

This is a remote, 6 month contract position. Full-time preferred, but could be part-time

NZXR creates XR solutions at the intersection of hardware, software, and humans.

We are a team of friendly people who specialize in solving hard problems in augmented reality and making fantastic experiences. We have many amazing projects on the go, but we would love someone with your eye to push them to the next level.

Dear artist, we need your help

As a small team working on many projects, good communication and self-management are critical. Our scale requires everyone on the team to fill multiple roles. We all work remotely, most of us in Aotearoa / New Zealand. Living in a compatible timezone would be a big plus.

As our first art hire you will need to be resourceful and take on art tasks outside your area(s) of expertise. A generalist will excel in this role but we don’t expect you to be an expert in everything, just have a willingness to figure out how to get the pieces to work together. In time we will grow the art team, so if you have experience and a desire to lead/mentor new artists that’s a big plus.

Applications are open until 30th of November 2021 - Application form
