We’re Ganymede Games, an independent game studio, and we’re looking for a full-time 2D environment artist to join our team. We’re all passionate gamers with a unique mix of industry veterans (ex-Riot Games) and rookies. We’re fun, serious about success and driven to create awesome experiences for players. We’re an inclusive team that values diversity.

As a 2D environment artist, you’ll bring the Xenotheria (sci-fi card-battling RPG) world to life, as well as work with us across our future games after we ship Xenotheria (yes, this is a long-term, full-time role!). You’ll be part artist and part world builder. You’ll create immersive 2D isometric environments ranging from barren desert landscapes, urban buildings, derelict spaceships and a wide variety of flora and game props. We’re a lean, indie team of nine and looking for someone who can solve problems, take ownership, and drive work to completion.

This position is full-time and you can work remotely from anywhere in the world (our current team has members across the USA, Australia, Greece, Turkey and Russia). 

What’s the mission?

  • Create shippable environment assets; from concepting, to painting and integrating into our pipeline, to final polish for a stylized sci-fi setting
  • Own the creation of levels / world building from blockout through final set dressing
  • Establish and maintain the overall environment style
  • Contribute to the creative process through original ideas and inspiration
  • Working together with the rest of the team to make Xenotheria the best RPG possible!

Must haves:

  • Excellent environment art skills, with a strong sense of color and composition
  • Love for environmental worldbuilding, able to execute on isometric environments (level layout exteriors and interiors)
  • Highly entrepreneurial mindset ready to work fast
  • Art portfolio that demonstrates both your creativity and craft as an artist
  • Proven experience working with Photoshop
  • You love RPGs
  • Strong sense of humor

Nice to haves:

  • Shipped one video game from concept to completion
  • A love of the sci-fi genre

To apply:

  • Send your resume, cover letter, and portfolio (online only) to explore@ganymede.games
  • We’ll take notice of a well-written cover letter that shows you did your homework on our company and explains why you’re interested in joining our team. We’d love to hear about your favorite games, sci-fi movies/documentaries, and personal hobbies, so tell us about what gets you most passionate!
  • If we’re interested in moving forward with your application, we will contact you to continue the process, which will include an art test for finalists.
