The Cognition Design team in the Intelligent Cloud organization is responsible for designing experiences in HoloLens (AR) and Windows Mixed Reality (VR), the world’s first Mixed Reality computing platform. Our growing team of designers, artists, architects and creative coders understand the potential of Mixed Reality, and how it will revolutionize the way people work, play and communicate; and we are passionate about bringing these benefits to people across the globe.
We’re excited to announce we are looking for a talented, experienced Senior Technical Artist to join our team. This position requires technical and creative expertise in the evaluation, creation, and optimization of 3D art and assets, and moving them at high levels of quality and performance to mobile platforms, esp. HoloLens.
Strong technical art, programming, and 3D visual skills are required. You are highly-skilled in 3D art creation and optimization tools; you can code shaders; you have production-pipeline expertise (especially in Unity); and you have broader app-design capabilities (concept/ideation, user-focused problem-solving, 3D app patterns). Experience in AI and Mixed Reality is highly desired.
In addition, you have a passion for communicating and sharing your work, both in documentation and at live events. You are happy engaging with others (including external Microsoft partners) in a team-setting, and you also enjoy rolling your sleeves up for focused, solo, hands-on design work. You embrace challenges, build strong relationships across teams and disciplines, and are highly collaborative.
