|Job Description||How bad is your habit?
4 cups per day? 5?
And the rest… It’s the long days. And nights.
When you’re crunching to reach a milestone you put in some serious hours. Caffeine is your savior when you need to pull an all-nighter.
Well that’s how it is in this industry. You love being an artist working in games and movies – but crunch is par for the course and you have to do it.
But what if it didn’t have to be? What if your studio had a strict ‘No Crunch’ policy – no unpaid overtime. Ever. And what if they also gave you 21 days’ paid vacation too?
Take a look at Atomhawk Design Ltd Vancouver. They’re a small team of amazingly talented artists that work hard 9-5, play hard, and still get their beauty sleep. They’re also hiring.
As their Lead Concept Artist you’ll be leading the whole art team across all projects, working hands on and leading by example. You’ll partner with Studio Director Chris Rowe who will support you at every step.
You'll even get to work with me as we grow your team further.
2019 will be a great year.
Interested? Let’s have a chat over coffee. Chris's treat.
Mine’s a flat white please. Decaf, of course.
