    • Must have exceptional Adobe Photoshop and digital painting skills
    • Must have a strong eye for composition and attention to detail

    • Ability to quickly produce high-quality marketing art and meet hard deadlines
    • Strong communication skills, highly organized and self-motivated

    • Graphic design skills
    • Experience working in the gaming or entertainment industries

Our success is due to the hard work of our people. We share our success with our people through flexible benefits and reward programs, sweet swag, snacks, and more.
