  • Identify and resolve the issues of highest impact to productivity of the art team
  • Be a part of the project tracking function, sanity-checking time estimates, anticipating dependencies before they become blockers, and keeping Production in the loop

  • Effective communication, documentation, and people skills
  • Skilled with contemporary game development software (Photoshop, Maya, Max, Zbrush, Substance Designer, and other 2D/3D applications)
