2D/UI/UX Games Artist

Squeaky Wheel Studio Inc. is a five man independent game studio based on the Philippines.  We have released two games so far, the strategy game Political Animals, and the currently ongoing Academia : School Simulator.

We are looking for an all around artist capable of 2D/UI/UX tasks.  This role will be about interfacing with designers and programmers to create art and UI assets as well as UX flow for Academia : School Simulator and a possible future game. You will be taking instruction and working with the Lead Artist.We prefer applicants that can seamlessly switch between these roles rather than being an expert at one of them.

This is a full time position. We work from home for most of the week, meeting only once a week to plan out our weekly targets.  This means the applicant should be willing and able to meet in Mandaluyong, Metro Manila, at least once a week.
