Audio Programmer Role - Working At A Sony First Party Game Development Company - Working On Games For PS4!

The company are searching for an Audio Programmer to join our close-knit team and contribute their skills and creativity towards creating Their New Game their latest UGC project.

This is not the most typical audio programming role. The successful applicant will develop all aspects of the game's audio stack, from creating software instruments to designing and implementing the musical UI/UX.

We are not simply looking for a programmer who happens to do some audio. We're looking for an exceptional individual with a real jones for the potential of audio and music creation in interactive entertainment.

A core part of the game is a powerful musical instrument, which can also be used for sound design. It's fun to play with, but also has depth. They want you to help them make it even better - for professionals, hobbyists and anyone in the PlayStation Games audience who wants to express themselves creatively.

Requirements

* A keen interest in, and understanding of, sound and music for games.
* An eye and an ear for what makes a great musical instrument, and the skills to code it. This role has a design/UX element to it.
* Low-level coder with DSP and audio code skills. You will be working on a unique sound engine, which includes sound creation and mangling features.
* Self-motivated - can create great user experiences without having to rely completely on feedback in order to iterate and make progress.
* Evidence of something relevant you have made - a game, graduation project, audio plugin, musical experiment, toy, user interface, etc.
* Please note that we will request a show-reel or link to past work if not included in your application.
* Experience working with FMOD/ Wwise or Unity, Unreal engine 4.
* Proficient in C++/C# Audio programming.
* Game programming experience is a bonus.
* Keen interest in PS4!!

Tips for getting Hired!

Please make sure to send along a portfolio, showreel, or just something that shows off your past work, published or otherwise - there's only so much we can glean from a CV alone.

These are the things we look for in each person they hire:

1 Very good at what you do!
2 Desire ownership and responsibility
3 Really love playing and making games
4 Burning with passion, enthusiasm and drive
5 Active rather than passive team player
6 Loves to collaborate with a creative team
7 Jolly nice personality
