KitBash3D is looking for an experienced 3D Supervisor capable of leading teams to design and build the most creative and fantastic virtual worlds. Every month we release original IPs like Neo Tokyo, Warzone and Heavy Metal that serve as the building blocks for creators to bring their own ideas to life. As our Head of 3D, you’ll lead a talented team of concept artists, modelers, and texture artists to craft these worlds to your design and specifications. You’ll also work with engineers and pipeline developers to create cutting edge tools to improve how environments are created within your team as well as for every KitBash3D user.

We’re looking for someone who has contributed to big projects, and understands the pain points that artists in major studios face every day. Our team works to solve those challenges, but not just for one studio – for hundreds of studios and thousands of artists around the world.

As our ideal candidate, leading creative teams is your primary area of focus, drawing on your years of experience working with 3D teams in VFX / video games.

You are adept at providing technical and creative feedback to your team in a constructive and thoughtful way. You are accustomed to delivering multiple projects simultaneously while meeting deadlines and staying on budget. You are organized, efficient, creative, open minded, and excited to build an unstoppable team. Your strong expertise with 3D, art direction, and leadership skills help you to inspire a team and bring out the best in each artist.
