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 an additional Sound Artist who will be responsible for creating theme sounds for all their online games across web, mobile & tablet channels. 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 further 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.
