Sifteo, a venture-backed consumer electronics start-up, is seeking a contract artist to create work for a new generation of interactive games on a revolutionary platform.

For a video demo of the product, see:

http://sifteo.com/

Siftables are gesture-sensitive video tiles that form a smart, distributed system for games and education. The technology has been spun out of the MIT Media Lab and has been featured on the Science and Discovery channels, presented at the TED conference, and has been written up by Engadget, Gizmodo, New Scientist and Wired.

We are looking for someone who is seriously into games and who will thrive in the rapid development of assets for small screens. You'll be working with a game developer from the early stages of the game all the way to completion.

We are specifically interested in pixel art, but other styles of 2D art could work well too.

The following is what we're looking for in an ideal candidate.

You:
- 1+ years of professional experience in game design & development
- portfolio of awesome game artwork in the 2D space
- can work rapidly
- specializes in 2D pixel art and sprite work
- thrive in a resource constrained environment (lower color depth, lower frame rates, small screens)

responsibilities:
- design background and animated sprite assets for a specific game or set of games
- high bandwidth communication with the game developer you are working with
- iterate, iterate, iterate.

bonus points for:
- experience or interest in working with communities (developer and player).
- experience with interaction design
- great digital sound effects composition skills
- come from an indie and/or mobile game development background
- based in Bay Area / San Francisco

Compensation:
- hourly contract work
- possible transition to F/T

Please send resumes to jobs at sifteo dot com with the subject "Artist"

Thank you!
