  • Either compose or coordinate with a composer to create music tracks for the game, coordinating with engineering on ways to trigger the tracks and provide the proper ambience for the game.
  • Coordinate with engineering on how best to present the SFX and music to players and design such systems with the Game Director.
  • Assist in integrating sounds into the game.
Knowledge/Skill/Ability Requirements
  • Experience level: 2 to 6 years of experience in a similar role. Sound effects design for one, or preferably more, large game projects. Music composition skills are a plus.
