    • Decompose complex ideas into succinct, communicable technical specifications
    • Cooperate with QA to produce robust test cases and push for high standards of quality
  • Prototype Concepts
    • Take part in the generation of design idea
    • Drive the development of rapid prototypes
    • Research, play and evaluate games to maintain an up-to-date knowledge of the domain


  • Extensive sound design experience
  • Shipped (at least) one title in a Sound Design (or equivalent) role
  • Strong knowledge of implementing / integrating sound features / assets in modern game engines
  • Good understanding of loudness standards / mix processes
  • Experience working in Unity
  • Strong understanding of industry standard audio (synthesis, manipulation) tools
  • Ability to decompose design goals into succinct implementation requirements
  • Ability to operate autonomously in a dynamic environment
  • Willingness to learn new technical skills and techniques



  • Bachelor's Degree (or equivalent formal qualification) in a relevant field
  • Experience developing large-scale / open-world / sandbox games
  • Strong grasp of text-based scripting (C# or equivalent language)
  • Familiarity with audio features in a multiplayer context
  • Hands-on experience with field and studio recordings and associated equipment
  • Background in audio engineering (recording, mixing, mastering)
  • Practical experience using a variety of modern game engines and tools
  • Working knowledge of software development and collaboration tools (eg Atlassian)
  • Familiarity with asset / version management (eg Perforce)
  • Keen understanding of User Generated Content
