At Secret Door we believe that some of our best memories come from shared experiences with friends. We are in the early days of our studio and there’s a ton of opportunity to have a big impact on what we are making as well as the overall direction of our company. Most importantly, we know our games will be at their best when a variety of voices, identities, and perspectives go into their creation, so come join us!

As we begin crafting game experiences that bring people together in positive ways, we are looking for a multi-faceted 3D Environment Artist with an explorer’s mind set to join us on our journey. You will work alongside our small art team as you get up close and personal with a variety of creative tasks facing our studio in its early days. As an inventive problem solver, we hope you love nothing more than multitasking your way through some of the most impactful assignments we will face, all while helping to realize the visual personality of our very first game.

  • As an ideal candidate you are able to create the art for an entire game level; including level objects, props, and terrain at the top quality available on next-gen consoles and/or mobile devices. In addition, you will help establish lighting, optimize assets, and help define asset creation workflows/tools.
