3D Artist (Cultural Heritage)

$60k – $90k • No equity
Apply now
At Archimedes Digital, you'll partner with professors and researchers internationally to transform the way we publish and share cultural heritage data. You'll create 3D art of historic sites and new museum experiences that bring our shared histories and traditions to life. You’ll work closely with architects, researchers, and museum curators (and have many opportunities to work onsite in the field or in museums around the world). A major plus is familiarity with photogrammetry and 3D scanning and how to use those models to create high quality gameplay experiences in VR and AR.

Check out archimedes.digital for some examples of recent projects we've developed to get a sense of what you'll be working on. We're a distributed team that partners internationally with archives, museums, and libraries, so if you work with us, expect to be invited for travel (such as our annual hackathon in Sicily or Egypt).

Our current opening is for a freelancer on a per-project basis for museums in the US, Africa, Europe, and Asia.

Our ideal candidate:
• Has 5+ years professional 3D modeling experience
• Has 5+ years experience working with Unity3D
• Superior 3D art skills, including environmental art, props, and lighting
• At least has basic proficiency in 3DS Max
• Knowledgeable and proficient in fun, casual, AAA mobile game art styles
• Experienced with photogrammetry and/or 3D scanning, decimation, and retopoligizing models
• Has shipped games or applications for VR and AR
• Is passionate about a humanities-related field and wants to see the way that humanities data is published be radically different in the future
• Communicates well with professors, researchers, and museum professionals
• Is self-led but highly aligned with your teammates; we develop fast, and align every 2-3 days
• Is based primarily in the UTC -8 to +1 timezones (in the northern hemisphere, that's from the West Coast on the US to Western Europe)

Please include a link to your portfolio and a brief description of your experience with 3D art and/or cultural heritage in your application on Angellist.

We look forward to hearing from you!
