Your Mission

As an Art Outsourcing Coordinator at Raven Software, you will interface directly with Producers and Art Directors to facilitate the successful fulfillment of outsourcing needs for Call of Duty Warzone and Campaign.

The Coordinator is a front facing member of the Outsourcing team who works with the internal environment art teams and our external partners to ensure day-to-day operations are working optimally. This is a junior level position for aspiring game artists or art centric producers.

• Design blockout / proxy geometry in 3dsMAX / Maya for use by our environment teams for worldbuilding.
• Learn proprietary engine tools with enough proficiency to import received content and setup basic game ready models, materials, and prefabs.
• Ability to adapt quickly to the expectations of the art team to communicate art vision across teams and become a trusted 'art decision maker.'
