Sound Designer
Company: Rebel Wolves
Location: Warsaw, Poland / Remote
Job description

Rebel Wolves is, at its core, a team of experienced veterans, who want to make great, and innovative Role-Playing Games! We’re working on a brand new AAA story-driven dark fantasy RPG for PCs and consoles in Unreal Engine 5. And we’re looking for you to join us!

Great RPGs tell amazing stories and provide players with genuine emotions. We believe that the sound layer is crucial for the giving-the-thrills kind of experience that we want to create.

You will be supporting our in-house audio team in creating and editing sound effects. Your daily work will include gathering, recording and editing source material, layering and processing to create the desired sound effect, mastering the assets to the required loudness standards and preparing the Reaper sessions for exporting into WWISE.

You will work closely with our audio team during the planning and execution of your tasks.

Apart from sourcing your material from our extensive library you will use first-class indoor and outdoor recording equipment to gather source material that is unique to our game.

Important note: Living close to Warsaw is a plus since you can help us with recording tasks. However we encourage sound designers from around the world to apply since there is a lot of work which can be done fully remote!

Here is what we require:
  • 2 years of experience as a Sound Designer or in a similar role (working on AAA and/or RPG games is a plus but not required).
  • Practical knowledge of various sound design, mixing and mastering techniques.
  • Ease in using sound effect library resources (Soundly, Sound Miner).
  • Skilled in cleaning and editing source material with tools like iZotope RX.
  • Fluent in using the Reaper DAW for layering, editing, processing, mixing, mastering and exporting sounds.
  • Solid knowledge of outdoor and studio recording equipment operation.
  • Ability to define goals, work with deadlines and adjust workflows when necessary.
  • Fluent English and exceptional communication skills.
  • Knowledge of implementing sounds in WWISE / Unreal Engine 5 is a plus.
Here is what we offer:
  • A part-time B2B contact (20 hours / week, flexible working hours).
  • Contracts will initially be renewed on a monthly basis.
  • Depending on future workload, increasing the amount of hours or the renewal period is open for discussion.
  • Professional outdoor recording equipment and an in-house studio to work at.
  • Competitive compensation.
  • Remote work options: partially, or fully remote. Due to the recording part of the position, being available partially for on-site work is a plus, but not a requirement.
  • Strict no-crunch working environment, based on trust and mutual respect.
Notes about the portfolio
  • We’re looking for a sound designer, please don’t include music.
  • Make sure your choice of material fits within the genre of a dark fantasy RPG.
  • Keep it short but detailed. Showcase all types of sounds (ambience, Foley, spot effects, fight sounds, creature effects).
  • Make your portfolio easily accessible (YouTube, Vimeo, video on your homepage, no direct downloads please). Make sure we can access the link (permissions, passwords)!
Still here? Good!
Drop us a line together with your CV and portfolio link at [recruitment@rebel-wolves.com] with the subject line “Sound Designer”.

We’re waiting for you!

Please be advised that we will contact only shortlisted Candidates.
