Naughty Dog
Santa Monica, CA

About our company…
Naughty Dog is the developer of critically acclaimed and top-selling titles including the Crash Bandicoot franchise, Jak and Daxter franchise and Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune. We’re a relatively small team with a highly decentralized and collaborative work environment – we value feedback about any aspect of our game development from any of our team members. We’re a tightly knit group and you can frequently find us participating in yoga sessions in the office, spending lunch playing out on the court basketball, foosball in our lunchroom or around town in our frequent group evenings out. Since Naughty Dog is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Sony Computer Entertainment America, we also get a lot of the perks that comes from being in the Sony family – movie screenings on the Sony Pictures lots and discounts on electronics, music, movies and PlayStation hardware and software. Of course, you just can’t beat our location. Naughty Dog is based near the ocean – and beaches – in Santa Monica, California, where beautiful weather and fair temperatures grace us year-round.

Requirements and Skills:
• Strong technical knowledge and artistic abilities working with sprite type particles and materials within a game engine.
• Strong sense of form, color, and composition.
• Advanced problem solving techniques and patience to resolve the numerous hurdles that present while working to achieve the highest quality effects, ranging from detailed explosions, weather, water, blood, etc.
• Thorough knowledge of Maya dynamics and expressions, as well as how to optimize for the PlayStation 3 hardware.
• The self-sustained ability to take on a problem and run with it until completion.
Bonus Skills:
• Intermediate level of scripting either in MEL or Python.

Please submit resume & reels (online preferred) with samples of your professional work along with a breakdown of your specific contributions to: candace_walker@naughtydog.com
