Technical Art Intern, Secret Door

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. 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!

Secret Door is looking for a talented and passionate technical art intern! Do you find that you’re both creative and technical; someone that enjoys scripting but also understands art? Does the prospect of becoming part of a small team working on our very first game fill you with excitement? Do you enjoy the challenge presented in developing tools, shaders, and workflows that will make the lives of your art team much easier? If you enthusiastically answer yes to these questions, you may be the perfect candidate for the internship position we’re opening next summer.


What We Need: 

  • Excellent communication with a strong desire to support other content developers
  • A diverse perspective and desire to empower others
  • Determined problem-solving to seek results in an ambiguous environment
  • Familiarity with shader creation
  • Some experience programming in Python or C#
  • Familiarity with content creation in Maya, Substance, and Photoshop is preferred
  • Experience with Unity a plus
  • Passion about video games is a plus

What You’ll Do: 

  • Work closely with senior technical artists to gain feedback and grow your skill set
  • Utilize technical art skills to build tools for various art programs such as Maya
  • Create shaders and graphs for visual effects
  • Optimize and enhance art to look and run its best in the game engine
  • Collaborate with and support artists while bridging communications across the team
  • Document best practices and standards to ensure workflows and pipelines are understood

If these things resonate with you and you find yourself curious about what we are doing at Secret Door, please apply through our internship program!

Secret Door is proud to be an equal opportunity employer. We celebrate and welcome diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive environment.
