Experienced 3D Artist

TurboSquid is the world’s leading seller of 3D Models, and is expanding the company’s Custom 3D team. We are looking for a 3D Artist that is versatile, experienced, and interested in working in a small company atmosphere with a collaborative style.

With over two million members, TurboSquid acts as an online broker for thousands of artists who publish their digital work (over 250,000 individual products) for sale on our site. We are located in the Central Business District of New Orleans in a vibrant walkable section of town close to restaurants, coffee shops and bars. TurboSquid is continuing to grow, and our industry is gaining unprecedented attention with the widespread popularity of 3D entertainment. Our customers include Pixar, Electronic Arts, Apple, Microsoft and thousands of others you wouldn’t realize need 3D all the time.

We offer a competitive salary, with flexible work hours, 401k match, group health care plan, 15 days of paid time off and 9 company holidays.

Job Description and Responsibilities

The 3D Artist is responsible for delivering photo-real content for a variety of Custom 3D clients and projects. We're looking for someone who wants challenging work, is tired of crazy production schedules, but wants to stay in the industry and work with a great group of people in a visually inspiring city.

Position Requirements

Technical Prowess – Strength with both 3ds Max and V-Ray are essential – ramp-up time for these applications needs to be nil. You will need to be able to internalize a variety of specs, and then create well-constructed models for that pipeline. Problems with the spec? We expect you to let us know, and help us improve the process for other artists.

Flexibility – Street signs, televisions, couches, shoes, buildings – we’ve had clients that need it all. We need someone who is comfortable (and hopefully excited) with the opportunity to be working on something completely different week-by-week.

Quality – At the end of the day, we need someone whose work gets mistaken for a real-world object. We’re working on tools and a process to make this a reality – we’ll just need you to execute on the content.

This position will be based out of our New Orleans office.
