We are now looking for a talented senior sound designer to join our Audio team and help with our award winning, user-created content project, Dreams. This is without doubt, one of the best Audio roles around. There’s huge scope for impact in this role, with ownership of both musical and audio design.

  • An intimate knowledge of sound recording, mixing, editing etc.  They should have experience recording different material, and an understanding of all the practicalities involved.
  • Demonstrable experience and knowledge of using at least one game sound implementation system. E.g. Wwise, FMOD, Unity, Unreal etc.
  • a working knowledge of an in-game implementation system or have used some form of scripting language.  Experience with logic is an important part of this role.
  • Demonstrable knowledge using systems like UE4 Blueprints, Max MSP or other visual logic systems is highly desirable.
