o   Managing asset file set up, optimization and troubleshooting performance in game

o   Mentor junior VFX Artists; this includes being a source of knowledge, and the ability to convey that knowledge to your fellow VFX artists in a way that can be easily understood

o   Contribute to and drive R&D with Engineers, Technical Artists and CG colleagues to maximize PLAYSTUDIOS’ technology potential, including exploring, testing and making recommendations for new production tools, pipelines and best-practices
