  • High capacity for teamwork and excellent communication skills
  • Self-contained way of working and high level of self-motivation
  • Positive work attitude and ability to give as well as receive objective criticism
  • Basic knowledge of game and graphic engines and preferably professional production experience in Unreal 4.
