Our company’s mission is to entertain hundreds of millions of people for decades. Although we already entertain 50M+ players worldwide and have grown into a team of 170+ game industry professionals in less than three years, we’re only getting started. That’s where we hope you come in: to develop the game art pipeline and drive visual improvements from a technical perspective. You will define, evaluate and revamp existing content as well as create intuitive and scalable solutions to help us expand the game world of Merge Mansion.


  • Location: Helsinki, Finland

Technical Artist plays a key role in innovating game art pipelines and improving visuals from a technical perspective for Merge Mansion. You will enable game artists, designers and developers to work efficiently and effectively to deliver top quality 2D and 3D content for the game. In practice, this means (at least) the following:

  • Working with and developing the existing art pipeline
  • Identifying production improvement opportunities from a technical art perspective, helping foresight potential issues, and offering different solutions to solve them
  • Creating scalable solutions for expanding Merge Mansion’s game world
  • Collaborating closely with Artists, Designers and Developers
  • Driving visual improvements from the perspective of technical art
  • Implementing in-game art
  • Maintaining technical documentation


Every role is eventually shaped to match our unique passions, backgrounds and strengths. Here are some of the key skills and experience you should already have when joining Metacore as a Technical Artist:

  • Previous experience working as a technical artist or in a similar cross-disciplinary role, and a good understanding of the technologies used in game development, especially graphics and tools
  • Knack for troubleshooting and solving tricky technical problems as well as anticipating issues that might emerge when operating a live game product
  • Strong Unity skills – you’re quick to digest existing code and feel comfortable using advanced Unity Editor features
  • Proactive self-starter with a high sense of ownership
  • Strong interpersonal and communications skills that enables you to cooperate with different people

In addition to these, it would be nice but not mandatory for you to know these as well:

  • Blender

  • Shaders
  • Spine
  • Scripting in Python or Javascript
