Job Description

Business Area/Division: Audio

Rebellion Oxford is currently looking for a junior-to-mid-level Audio Designer with a passion for sound effects and games audio. This is a rare opportunity to join a successful independent developer with our own in-house audio facilities and to learn directly from experienced audio designers. Tasks will include creating, refining and implementing audio assets for a cross platform title, as well as assisting on other projects in production as required.
This role will initially be a 12 month full-time employed contract role (not freelance or agency) based in-house at our Oxford head-studio. For the right person there are great prospects for this contract to be extended in future and/or to transition into a permanent in-house role. You must be able to legally work in the UK.

Experience:

1 year’s game audio experience (or proven experience in audio production) is preferred, as would be at least 1 finished product in a critical audio role, any experience producing sound for multiple target platforms, and any proven track record with AAA console products.
Please provide a showreel demonstrating your sound design talents (music content optional, please note that this is an audio/music editing/implementation role so would not suit someone solely interested in composing).

Report to the audio lead and project producers regarding the sound design direction and audio-related requirements of the current game, technology requirements, resource issues, etc
Design and create high quality audio assets for various in-house projects
Perform sound format conversion, EQ, looping, mixing, adding DSP effects, normalization and sound balancing for in-game assets on multiple platforms
Carry out audio dept operations; setting up, troubleshooting and maintaining equipment, archiving recorded material, engineering recording sessions, etc
Keep up-to-date on current artistic and technical production trends in game audio and how they can benefit Rebellion
Work effectively with minimal levels of guidance, prioritising and scheduling your own work
Collaborate productively within multi-disciplined project team environments, communicating ideas and issues clearly
Be responsive to deadlines and work well under pressure, meeting multiple production objectives and deadlines

Skills & Attributes:

Outstanding creative and technical audio production skills, strong attention to detail and excellent work ethic
Excellent understanding of audio production, editing and mastering
Very good understanding of EQ, dynamic range, compression techniques and multi-channel audio formats
Experience with professional audio editing tools such as (or similar to) Reaper, Sound Forge, Cubase, Vegas, Waves plug ins, etc.
Excellent initiative, self-motivation, communication, organisational and problem solving skills, as well as team-working and the ability to accept and follow direction
A genuine interest in playing games and a passion for audio in games
An understanding of programming methods and conventions would be an advantage
