About Tripledot Barcelona

As part of our rapid growth, we are creating a new team in Barcelona. The Tripledot Barcelona team will take the lead on locally created titles, and participate in creating and improving our wider portfolio of titles. This is a unique opportunity to be part of a world-class team from the early days, and have an invaluable impact on the culture and the composition of the team.

About the Role

At Tripledot you’ll be responsible for maintaining a high degree of polish and quality across all our games, ensuring that they look and feel fantastic. Are you an experienced technical artist who understands the visual styles and trends of the mobile games ecosystem? Do you have strong opinions on which games look good, and why? Can you create beautiful, market-quality art and assets with a player demographic in mind? If so, we’re the team for you.

Key Responsibilities

At Tripledot, a Technical Artist is a Unity expert; the critical link between art and code, able to tackle any number of varied tasks within the engine.

  • Design and implement the ‘Unity layer’ which links the art and animation of the game artists to the functionality of the programmers’ underlying codebase.
  • Construct games within Unity, including the use of Unity UI, in accordance with our in-house technical workflow.
  • Write custom components in C# when control over complex visual elements is required.
  • Optimise the games so that they run smoothly and efficiently on the widest possible range of mobile devices.
  • Create animations, particle effects and custom shaders when necessary.
  • Support and mentor game artists on technical issues.

Requirements

Our Technical Artists are all game developers. We’re particularly interested in candidates who’ve worked on their own game projects.

  • Expertise in the Unity engine and Unity UI in particular.
  • Experience with different architectural approaches to building a game in Unity, especially with regards to making it possible for multiple disciplines (art, animation, audio) to work independently in the engine.
  • The ability to write clean, performant C# code when necessary.
  • A drive to solve problems in a thoughtful, elegant way.
  • The drive to proactively clean up or fix unoptimised assets and knowing when to do so.
  • Experience working closely with programmers, and the ability to communicate technical information to them remotely.
  • Eligible to work in Spain.
  • Professional-level English.
  • Applicants may be asked to complete a short technical art test at home.
