Note that this a senior-level position in audio design. Please do not submit an application if you do not meet the stated requirements.
At Hinterland, we put a huge emphasis on the quality of audio in our experiences. We believe that audio accounts for at least half of what makes The Long Dark work for our players. We aspire to be pioneers in interactive audio and are looking for a forward-thinking interactive audio professional with extensive game experience to help us achieve our goals in this area.
In this role, you will work under the guidance of the Audio Director, contributing broadly across all areas of audio design including foley and field recording, mixing, sound design, audio post, dialogue, video/cinematics, and more. You also need to have a well-developed sense of how to create compelling gameplay speech systems and memorable player experiences.
You will collaborate closely with a cross-disciplinary team of artists, animators, programmers, and designers, and will be expected to document, prototype, implement, and iterate on your work based on feedback from the Audio Director, playtesters, and other members of the development team.
You should have experience using Wwise, and making games in Unity. We are looking for a senior level audio designer, so please have 5 years of experience contributing to the design and implementation of audio content, preferably on shipped, award-winning triple-A or “indie” titles.
This is a full-time salaried position in our Vancouver (Gastown) studio. We’re able to provide relocation assistance for the right candidate, including immigration support, although we will give preference to candidates who are legally permitted to work in Canada.

Please include your resume, a cover letter, LinkedIn profile (if you have one), and a link to any relevant portfolio pieces or other information you feel might be helpful to use learning more about you.
