LEAD ARTIST

Little Red Dog Games is looking for a Lead Artist with a strong background in 3D environmental asset development also willing to support visual concept work with 2D sketches to drive the artistic vision and development of our games, particularly a charming single-player hotel management simulation currently in-development.

This is a full-time remote-working position with flexible hours.  All that money saved avoiding uncomfortable small-talk in the communal kitchen goes straight into your pocket.  Make beautiful things with us without the distraction of weird unaddressed smells, overheard plot spoilers or meetings that don't respect your time.

Little Red Dog Games has been developing deceptively strategic videogames that look and feel different for almost a decade.  We have deep experience working with partners all over the world, as well as strict no-crunch policies and our company philosophy is grounded in the ideal of a healthy work-life balance and ethical game development.
