About Coffee Stain Studios
Coffee Stain Studios is the biggest development team under the Coffee Stain brand and it's where it all started back in 2010. For the last five years we've been developing Satisfactory. The game has been quite the success in Early Access but there are still things we want to add and finalize before the final release.
Micromanaging is not our style, so everyone needs to take responsibility over their own work. We want everyone to feel like they’re contributing to the end product and thrive towards always becoming better at what they do.
Diversity is something we encourage and support. Not only does creativity thrive when different backgrounds and perspectives are brought together, we also grow as people. Coffee Stain Studios has grown more diverse over the recent years, but we still believe we can improve more.
As a VFX-artist you will work closely together with animation, (tech) art, sound and design to find exactly what we should add and where. You will contribute to the team and game by making a lot of amazing particles and other effects. You've hopefully worked in Unreal Engine before and have a good knowledge and understanding regarding everything VFX. You will be using Niagara, Blueprints and anything else to your need to make the coolest VFX.
Do you like to create anything that moves and that isn't a character or an object? Do you harness the power of fire, water and explosions? Perhaps you even enjoy creating some nice lighting while you are at it? Your passion for creating awesome visuals fuels your drive to constantly learn and improve your skillset. As a VFX Artist at Coffee Stain, you’ll play an important part in our game development process. You’ll work together with all other departments to make the best game possible. No matter what your role is, you are encouraged to be an influential part of our game development.
