Senior UI Artist

The goal at XR Games is to be the best developer of VR titles in the world. 


Due to the success and critical acclaim of our previous projects such as Zombieland: Headshot Fever and Angry Birds Under Pressure our team is now working on numerous major projects with recognisable IP’s throughout 2022 and 2023.


Having won ‘Best small studio’ at the 2021 TIGA awards our team is growing in all areas of game development as we transition from a small start-up studio to an established multi-disciplined games studio specialising in full-scale immersive extended reality games. Led by a team with big game experience at studios such as Rockstar, EA, Codemasters, Playground, Dubit and Sumo we have created games for some of the world’s biggest brands such as Sony, Rovio, Dreamworks and Lego.


The Role

We’re looking for an experienced senior games UI/UX Artist to join our team. In this role, you will be working closely with the Head of Design, Art Director, and other artists to create the best possible user experience for our players. 

Objectives for the role:​​

  • Produce wireframes and prototypes.

  • Create and execute ergonomic interfaces

  • Ideate UI/UX enhancements for our games

  • Collaborate with team members to keep content user-friendly

The right person for this role will have significant experience developing UI/UX in video games. You should have a portfolio of examples of your work on AAA console games, even better if you can show 3D maps and UI. You will be proficient enough to take the lead in this space for XR Games and guide the direction of UI for our future projects.


Core Skills & Experience:​

  • 3+ years’ games industry experience with at least 2 specifically within games UI

  • At least one shipped title

  • A strong understanding of ergonomic principles applied to games.

  • Experience with Unity

  • Excellent Graphic Design skills.

  • An understanding of the latest UI/UX trends and technologies.

  • An ability to engage in blue-sky creative thinking.

  • Strong communication skills.

Any experience developing UI for a VR game will be seen as a big bonus, but is not essential.


Our studio is based in Leeds with a hybrid-working setup as standard. Our preference will always be to have people based in the office for part of the week, this will aid with your personal development as well as fully ingraining you within our team's culture and fun activities. However we do accommodate fully remote team members if we need to and will assist financially with relocation for those looking to do so. 


If the above sounds like you, we’re excited to hear from you!
