Outsourcing Supervisor – Character Art

Developing our next AAA-title we need to strengthen our Character Artist department with an Outsourcing Supervisor to make sure we are hitting art quality targets while maintaining efficiency in our external asset production.

In the role of Outsourcing Supervisor for Character Art your main task will be to maintain the high quality of assets produced at our outsourcing partners, as well as to support in maintaining a healthy backlog of work for our outsourcing partners to work on.  

This role will give you the opportunity to be a part of the production of AAA games at a great game studio. On top of that, you will work with talented teams of artists both here at Sharkmob and at several of our great suppliers from all over the world. Since the game you will be working on is in full production, you will need to hit the ground running. However, since our employees are our most valuable asset, you will get thorough onboarding as well as all the tools and subsequent support you need to develop and achieve great results.

You will be essential to our external production and will strive to improve how we work with our art outsourcing partners, primarily focusing on Character Art. Our ways of working are flexible, and we need to quickly adapt to project needs, so you will also have the chance to work with various supporting tasks related to art production for the project. 

Key elements of the role

  • Reviewing assets submitted by outsourcing partners according to documented guidelines and with guidance from our experienced Character Artists 
  • Maintaining the backlog of assets by preparing order briefs and ensuring briefs and instructions are being followed by our external partners 
  • Drive continuous improvement initiatives for all collaborations and workflows together with our External Development Specialist and Producers

Requirements

  • Past experience as a Character Artist
  • Attention to detail
  • Good sense of art quality 
  • Able to work methodically with tools such as Jira and Confluence

Bonus points

  • Experience giving feedback on outsourced art for games 
  • Experience managing outsourcing pipelines and collaborating with external partners

You don't need to be a gamer to join us, but we consider it a bonus (and hopefully, you do too!).

Who we are

Sharkmob was founded in 2017 and has offices in Malmö, Sweden, and London, UK. The studio develops AAA-quality games for PC and console, using the Unreal Engine to power its ambitions of taking multiplayer games to new heights.

Currently, we are working on two major projects: Exoborne – a Sharkmob original game created in Malmö, is a tactical, open-world extraction shooter set in a United States torn apart by apocalyptic forces of nature. The second project, developed in London, is another Sharkmob original IP yet to be announced. Our first game, Bloodhunt - a battle royale set in the Vampire: The Masquerade universe, was released on 27 April 2022.

At Sharkmob, we are committed to building an inclusive team that represents diverse backgrounds, perspectives, and skillsets – because we believe that helps us create great games. We welcome all candidates who are aligned with our core values of shared ownership, smart decisions, and, last but not least – having fun! We hope you want to join us on our adventure and become a part of our crew. You can find more great perks of being a crew member.
