Valve Corporation Bellevue, WA

About the Job

We're looking for versatile, self-directed artists who have experience in 2D character and world design and enjoy working in a fast-paced, collaborative environment. Your folio should, above all, demonstrate originality, an ability to iterate, and an understanding of color and form. It should also reflect a solid understanding of anatomy and painting, and contain examples that show your awareness and appreciation of Valve's various Intellectual Properties.


  • Collaborating with a multi-disciplinary team (6-8 people) to produce useful concept designs based on the group's collective conversations and decisions
  • Iterating quickly and submitting work that solves problems rather than creates them
  • Self-managing and also being aware of the needs and requirements of those around you
  • Generating ideas and using 2D/3D work to communicate those ideas to the team


  • Working knowledge of 3D packages such as ZBrush, Maya, Blender, 3DS Max, etc.
  • Communication skills that allow you to describe your process maturely and succinctly
  • The ability to change gears quickly when needed
