Emerald City Games is a collection of the best designers, developers and artists, and we’re looking for an awesome FX Artist to join our team!

Someone that has a good work ethic, attitude and wants to work on great games with great people.

Tasks could include:

  • Create particle effects and 3D mesh-based real time VFX for the next generation of AAA mobile games. This consists of, but is not limited to spells and special character abilities, locomotion and combat effects and emotive environmental effects.
  • Collaborate with art directors, game designers and concept artists to ensure that your effects are in line with the game concept and the overall game experience.
  • Work in a variety of styles: fantasy and sci-fi.
  • Research visual effect processes and create highly original textures.
  • Take part in regular art discussion, critiques and reviews. We love visual world-building, you do too!

Emerald City Games is unique, even by industry standards. It’s a great culture, that has you inspired every day. You need to be able to check off the following:

  • Be really good at what you do. We have a high standard. We like to give our devs a lot of responsibility and ownership.
  • Work hard. We want people to roll up their sleeves when they need to, while supporting and encouraging others!
  • Get along well with others. At ECG we see everyone as family. We pride ourselves on creating an environment that is supportive and offers equal opportunity for everyone!

We are 100% independent. We create our own worlds, we choose to work on the games we want to make, and you will not find a more talented, inspiring, down-to-earth group to join. Drop us a line if you’re interested in being a part of it.

Oh, and don’t think you need to be in Canada to apply. Our company has a long history of obtaining work visas. We want to work with the best, and we don’t let borders stop us.
