  • Good experience within Maya, Blender, or 3DS Max
  • Solid understanding of runtime performance costs and how to optimise content
It's a bonus if you have…
  • Knowledge of procedural content creation packages 
  • Experience with photogrammetry
  • Previous experience with Adobe Substance Automation Toolkit 
For 30 years Rebellion have been creating incredible video games at their multiple studios, but they’re more than just games. They have their own film and mo-cap studio, create board games, publish books, and through 2000AD, publish comics and graphic novels such as the amazing Judge Dredd.

They operate across multiple UK locations, with studios based in Oxford, Warwick, Liverpool, and Wakefield. Work-life balance is important to Rebellion, and they want everyone at to work in the way that works best for them.
