At Improbable, we’re bringing together technology and games to create new opportunities and experiences. In order to achieve this, we need unique perspectives from diverse people, empowered to revolutionise how online games are made, delivered and paid for.

We believe one of the biggest, most impactful changes to the way we live our lives is going to come from the medium of games. Realising new communities, societies and vocations through virtual worlds is what drives our people and gives them purpose.

Your Mission

Reporting to the Character Lead, your role is to spearhead the production of high quality character content for a SpatialOS game built in Unreal. You will help to define and set the benchmark for our in-game characters, utilising your extensive experience to help Improbable create class-leading AAA characters.

You will be a creator of high quality character content within the character team with team members located both in Cambridge and London. You will also be liaising with multiple games and technology teams within Improbable to share knowledge and help define how we build and implement character content as a company.

  • You will work closely with creative leads, designers, artists and programmers to create high quality characters leveraging the next generation of games technology.

We’d like to hear if you if you identify with the following:

  • Master of creating game ready characters, whether through sculpts or photogrammetry.
  • Master of human anatomy to a very high fidelity.
  • Master of creating realistic, detailed clothing and attachments for characters.
  • Experienced with the latest techniques used to create highly detailed and visually stunning characters models, including next-gen hair and skin shaders.

  • Excellent in defining and prioritising workloads for yourself through Jira or another tracking methodology.
  • Excellent in identifying issues and proposing solutions that improve character pipelines or studio workflows.
  • Expert skills in Maya, Zbrush, Substance Painter and Marvelous Designer.
  • Able to define workflows and tutorials that guide the entire character effort.
  • Unreal Engine game engine experience a definite plus.
Nb: While we think the above experience could be important, we can’t predict the future and so we’re keen to hear from applicants that believe they have valuable experience. If you identify with the team & mission, but not all of the suggestions, then please still apply!!
