Bungie is seeking a Technical Artist ready to drive improvements in content creation workflows and visual fidelity. Do you ever use MacGyver techniques to get art to function and behave in spectacular ways with what you have available to you (batteries, feather and duct-tape are not included)?

If so, you might be just who we’re looking for!

As a Technical Artist, you will collaborate with the art team to define the pipelines and techniques that will deliver our shared vision.
