Supercell is a mobile game developer based in the mobile gaming capital of the world, Helsinki, with offices in San Francisco, Seoul, and Shanghai – all great cities with super talented and super nice people.

Supercell is looking for an Art Intern to join the Clash Quest team in Helsinki. Clash Quest is a new adventurous, island hopping, turn-based strategy game, where you create dynamic troop combos to take on enemies and colossal bosses! The team is in need of extra help to speed up the art workflow. Here’s where you come in!

You would help out with various art-related tasks such as implementing and testing assets in the game engine, be it 3D models, UI, or VFX. Daily tasks might include building and optimizing 3D assets in the game – anything from level props to characters. You could potentially also create concept designs for new regions, characters, etc., and help to plan and document the art production. You will utilize and get familiar with tools such as Adobe Suite, Autodesk, and Blender. The tasks will eventually depend on your interest and skill level.

The ideal person for this role is a proactive, friendly, and creative doer. The art team highlights the importance of continuous feedback – hence this is a great entry-level opportunity for an artist who has a thirst for feedback and developing their own skills and ways of working. Your opinions are also equally valued and we hope you bring your own thoughts and ideas to the table. You’ll need good cooperation skills as you will work closely with other artists and game developers.

What we are looking for:

  • Relevant education background, such as ongoing art studies, or relevant work experience
  • Portfolio of your best work
  • Familiarity with tools such as Adobe Suite, Flash, Autodesk, Blender, or similar software
  • Genuine interest and passion for games (experience of Supercell’s games is a big plus!)
  • Love for crafting delightful and stunning art
  • Good interpersonal and collaborative skills and proactive attitude
  • The enthusiasm to work in an international environment
  • Proficiency in English, both oral and written

We see as an advantage:

  • Experience with game engines such as unity or unreal

Why you will love it at Supercell:

  • The opportunity to work with an amazing, service-minded, skilled team and have fun at work
  • A rare opportunity and a versatile job for an artist at the beginning of their career. At Supercell you get support, feedback, and a unique opportunity to boost your future career!
  • Easy-going, enthusiastic, open, and at the same time a very results-driven culture
  • Supportive and experienced colleagues who boost your professional development and who are curious to hear your ideas
  • An opportunity to follow closely the game industry and development of next-generation mobile games
  • Great, brand-new office facilities (including usage of an office gym, sauna, and swimming pool)
  • Flexitime regarding the working hours

This is a fixed-term, full-time, 4-months intern position. In this position, you will be employed as an aTalent employee at Supercell. This is a paid internship. The candidate should be based in the Helsinki metropolitan area, as we do not offer relocation and the position requires active presence at Supercell’s office.

Excited about this opportunity? Let’s get things going! Send your CV and Portfolio (and optional cover letter) at the latest on August 19th. In your application documents, please mention your earliest possible starting date and a salary request. You may apply for the position via our application system.
