Senior Concept Artist
We are Fatshark
We are a critically acclaimed Swedish game development studio with about 180 experienced and skilled employees. We are most well-known for developing the Warhammer: Vermintide franchise, but have also helped develop a number of AAA titles and will soon be launching the highly anticipated game Warhammer 40,000: Darktide.
We have grown quite a bit over the last few years and are almost two-hundred “Sharks” now, but we still embrace the same values that we started with and still think of ourselves like one big family with fun at the center. Come into our world, a world known for our crazy internally designed socks, hackweeks, and Friday afternoons for studio-wide “social play” time. It all adds up to an approachable, fun, passion-driven yet communal environment for us to work in.
As a Senior Concept Artist at Fatshark you will be a part of our talented Concept Team of 4 artists, producing concept art to support our production pipeline of 3D artists, both for in-house and outsourcing colleagues.
Your responsibility will be the development of the upcoming ‘Warhammer 40K Darktide’ release. Your main focus will be to produce environment concepts, visually develop and lead the way for our inhouse World art department during the process of developing new levels and environments.
Furthermore, you will research and sync the work with our Director group and licensing partner and find references needed to carry out your daily tasks.
Last but not least, this is a great opportunity to dive into the dark, gritty and intriguing world of Warhammer 40K!
