As a FX artist at Embark, it's your job to make our players dream, feel, and fall in love with our games.
You craft dynamic, vibrant, and gorgeous special effects that will help our games come to life, bind together and enhance the gameplay and the emotional experiences.
Your passion is to surprise players with well-tuned and beautifully built experiences. You enjoy a variety of games — sometimes deconstructing and analyzing, other times just playing.
You think hard about how players explore and experience games, and you imagine a future where players can be part of creating their own unique experiences.
You know that experimenting is a gamble. But you have a knack for choosing the smartest route, and you know when it’s time to declare success or failure. You make sure to balance meaningful innovation with executing best practices.
