Welcome to Rovio! We are looking for a hands on Art Director to join our successful Match Studio in Espoo, Finland. Rovio’s Match Studio is the established and passionate team behind the successful Angry Birds Pop, Fruit Nibblers and newly launched and soaring Angry Birds Blast. In the studio we’re looking for the most talented and ambitious yet humble game development professionals on the planet to build the next big thing. We’re a flat organization where you’ll find openness, candid feedback and a shared ambition to succeed to be at the very core of our DNA as a studio. True to the Nordic culture we pride ourselves in real life/work balance and strongly support personal growth and hunger for learning. This is a senior role at the studio, and while we are more than happy to help diverse candidates make the step up, you will need some mixture of experience, aptitude and passion in four key areas. You’ll need vision. We need someone to help define the artistic vision for our games. You will work with the team of super talented senior artists to help to develop new IPs and also interpretations of the world known Angry Birds brand. Can you help us define what our audience wants, what creates true emotional connection to the games we make, the soul of the game. You’ll need to ensure consistency and quality. Rovio is well known for making games with genuinely world-class production values. You need to take responsibility for ensuring that our studio is producing work of the absolute highest quality, and making sure the vision is consistent. You’ll need to make stuff. In our studio everybody is expected to roll their sleeves and get their hands dirty, so you will need to be comfortable creating concept art as well as making usable assets to help us move quickly during different phases of development. But more than anything, we want someone who wants to develop and grow as a big part of a great, diverse team and help create a fantastic culture that makes amazing mobile F2P games. You want to coach and elevate your team. You will be the team lead for our studio artists ranging from very talented junior artists to seasoned senior artists with years of background in the gaming industry. You get joy out of bringing out the best in people and seeing them grow and become even better.Read more
