Environment Concept Artist
Unannounced Project Irvine, California

We are looking for a talented 2d concept artist, who is excited to imagine environments in service of creating amazing experiences for our players.  If you have a passion for game development and want to participate in the future of Blizzard, we would love to hear from you!  Our team values creativity, collaboration and a commitment to quality and we are searching for like minded developers to add to our team of talented game makers.  Together we will learn, grow, and ultimately enjoy success as a team, overcoming new challenges together.
