Improbable

At Midwinter we're on a quest to create ground-breaking new games and a thriving community of gamers who play them. We’re bringing together top talent with a shared passion for creating fun. We value people from diverse backgrounds with differing perspectives, who are unafraid of taking on new challenges.

Are you passionate about UI design, with a great looking portfolio? Are you experienced in Unreal Engine? We'd love to talk to you!

Your Mission
as a UI Artist/Animator, will be to produce both static and animated UI graphics for our first game, Scavengers. You will work in a variety of styles and tools, from creating graphic icons in Adobe Illustrator to rendered FUI in After Effects. You will develop great looking UI widgets optimized for a PC/console action game using UMG Designer and Blueprint in Unreal Engine 4. You will work with an experienced team with a lot of drive and energy.

Areas for Impact

    • Develop and optimize UI content in Unreal Engine.
    • Work closely with other developers to create and continually improve UI and Graphic Design across the game and studio.
    • Design branding elements and style guide documentation for various projects at a studio level.
    • Generate high quality assets for use in Marketing, Promotional and Social Media.

We'd like to hear from you if you identify with the following

    • Previous game industry experience.
    • Recent Unreal Engine 4 experience.
    • Attention to detail, artistic skill and motion graphics experience, as demonstrated in a visual design portfolio.
    • Communication, collaboration and organizational skills.
While we think the above experience could be important, we’re keen to hear from people that believe they have valuable experience to bring to the role. If you identify with the team and mission, but not all of our requirements, then please still apply!!
