Space Ape’s mission is to make the highest quality and most successful mobile games in the world. And we’re just getting started.

Our company is built around the belief that small empowered teams make the best games. We believe this enables us to innovate, move faster and have more creative ownership.

At this important stage of the company’s growth, we are looking for a talented artist to work closely with our games teams that are focused on making the next top grossing title!

About the role

At Space Ape, we are focused on building world-class, franchisable brands and IP. Our games are fun, fresh and brimming with personality.

As a Senior Artist, Art Director you will be at the forefront of one of our new titles. You will drive both the artistic vision and the internal team to produce high quality assets through effective communication, accurate detailed planning, and active mentorship.

You will set the example for individual contributors by creating highly compelling artwork that meets the visual and technical requirements of the game whilst serving as the benchmark for artistic excellence and work ethic.

The ideal candidate should possess a mobile first attitude with strong art direction and communication skills. They should also have experience in creating art for casual, cartoon, stylized and mid-core mobile games.
