HRC Recruitment is currently working alongside a Game Studio based in Dundee who is looking to expand their team by hiring a Game Audio Engineer.

As a Game Audio Engineer, you will make the Game studio soundscape the best it can be. You will build and deliver on a plan to harness the creativity and apply industry-leading algorithms and methods to envelop the player in something that’s amazing, no matter whether the target platform is mobile, desktop, console or VR.


Day to day activities:

• Fluent in signal processing: You understand human hearing modelling, physical modelling, and ad-hoc audio algorithms

• 2 years + experience at systems level C++, Unity, C# programming: Pointers, templates, and raw blocks of memory are tools to write high-performance code, not your enemies

• Able to adapt to a dynamic-everything environment where pre-computation isn’t possible

• Experienced in working with internal and external stakeholders to deliver projects that keep working once they’re done

• Comfortable in defining and championing a plan to improve audio capabilities over time, and marshal others to your cause
