Do you have a passion for music, sounds & recording? If so this could be an exciting opportunity to use these skills in your next career move.
The UK's leading independent online gaming company is looking to recruit a Sound Artist who will be responsible for creating theme sounds for all their online games.
This will include creating individual themes, jingles & sound effects suitable for a wide variety of games & across all platforms from PC to Mobile & Tablet.
As a company they have a strong presence in the market - every aspect of their games & software is developed in house from initial game concept through graphic design & programming to hosting & marketing. As such they are not reliant on 3rd party suppliers & are therefore able to offer unique games & much more fluid & exciting content. This is a new role created by expansion & ongoing growth of the company, which has more than doubled in size in the last 18 months.
The ideal candidate will first & foremost be highly creative and have a great sense of fun & imagination.
You will be able to compose & perform music and have good sound engineering skills with knowledge of relevant tools, technology and software.
Have excellent organisational skills to be able to manage the quantity & variety of sound effects & music required & to co-ordinate recording sessions effectively.
Strong communication skills to liaise with designers, producers & programmers to understand their needs & work effectively with them.
An understanding of online gaming would be advantageous but is not essential if you have a positive attitude & hard working mentality.
You're likely to have a feel for the 'atmosphere' of games, especially fantasy based themes, and to understand the impact music & sounds can have on the overall effect.
This represents an exciting career development opportunity with a growing company in a buoyant market sector. Salary is up to 24,000, with potential for reviews & career progression in the future.
