Formerly known as Destination Games, the North American branch of NCsoft is lead by famed Ultima designer and programmer Richard Garriott.

What we need: New, announced MMO is looking for an Art Manager to maintain consistent high-quality artwork and ensure the integrity of design and concept in all aspects of art created by the team.

*This is more of a supervisory/administrative position than an art directing position. While knowledge of/experience with art and video game development is necessary, this role is separate from creating the vision or actual art in the game.
