Plarium is an international developer of award-winning mobile and desktop games. More than 1400 of our specialists work remotely or at offices in Israel, Ukraine, Poland, and the USA.

RAID: Shadow Legends, Mech Arena, and our other 18 hit titles unite more than 450 million players worldwide. With over 14 years’ experience, we strive for boundary-pushing gameplay and graphics. We pair this with our dedication to innovation through analytics, marketing, and community interaction.

We are looking for a talented Real-time VFX Artist to join our RPG Department, which is responsible for developing RAID: Shadow Legends, a mobile MMORPG that combines battle collection mechanics and cutting-edge graphics in a dark fantasy setting. Our flagship title is enjoyed by more than 81 million players worldwide –  you can find it on iOS, Android, and PC/Mac.

The successful candidate will become a part of a brand new team that will be developing a new feature set in the RAID: Shadow Legends universe. The team will be working directly with the world of our flagship title to create a minigame. We are looking for someone who can provide a creative approach to the development of high-quality graphics and high-end visual effects.

While it will be simpler in terms of gameplay, this minigame is going to be just as dynamic, and will include similar RPG elements: upgrading characters, the capacity to gain skills and improve characters, and engaging in boss fights.

The team will use a range of tools for specific tasks: Maya for 3D modeling and UV, ZBrush and Blender for sculpting, Houdini for pyro, fluid, and destruction simulations, Amplify Shader Editor for prototyping shaders, and so on.
