Video Game Graphics Designer

Blockchain has opened a door for a world of new products to exist. GFX Labs is a crypto products studio. We are building products we want to use. We have three initial projects - Etherlands, Poppie, and governance work. This position is focused on Etherlands.

Etherlands: Minecraft on the blockchain. This is the game we wish we had to play when we were younger. We want to empower players with ownership of their in-game assets and introduce them to the Ethereum ecosystem. If you love Minecraft, MMOs, or NFTs, come help us grow Etherlands.

Web2 explanation: Etherlands is a new-age Minecraft server enabling a portal between survival multiplayer and true land ownership. Users can build towns with friends, trade globally, and battle to the death for resources! Utilizing the power of new web technology, players can access 3D renders of their land, manage their land, and more!

Web3 explanation: Etherlands is a new-age GameFi project connecting existing popular Web2 content to new Web3 technology. Using the power of Minecraft and Polygon Network, users can claim chunks of land as an ERC-721 token, create towns, and invite friends to play together whilst truly owning their creations.

Why work at GFX?

  • Any company can pay a high salary and offer good incentives (as will we), but most can’t offer interesting, challenging, and rewarding work. Team members can work on a variety of projects, not only bouncing between different internal projects, but we also strongly encourage you to come up with your own proposals to work on.
  • We have something to prove. Our team is young and hungry. We like to move fast and make things. We know when to double down and when to cut our losses. We are going to make mistakes, and we are going to build better products because of them. We don’t micromanage or have a huge team of product managers. We want self-self starters who take charge and solve problems.
  • We don’t care if you went to school, what grades you got, or your age. I am 22, and Eddy is 22. We dropped out of college to work at Grapefruit Trading for three years before starting GFX. Show us what you have built, what problems you have solved, and what skills you have. Mike Komaransky and the team at Grapefruit gave us the opportunity to try new things, make mistakes, and therefore thrive. We want to pay that goodwill forward and give more people the opportunity to show their skills to the world.
  • Get paid to learn. Is your current job boring? Do you want to get into the weeds of crypto? Do you want to build something meaningful? Do you want to be excited about what you’re working on?
