  • Setting your quality mark early in the pipeline process, when dialogue is requested, by collaborating with writers and designers, and ensuring it has a natural flow and is dramatically believable.
  • In the incipient phase, you will give input on sonic qualities for casting, create prototypes and provide context during the authoring and directing stage, while collaborating with writers and designers in achieving the best common ground.
  • Once the voice over is received, you will edit, master and give feedback according to the requirements you ware a key part in setting.
  • You will own the asset management responsibility and integrate VO in Sweet.
  • In the implementation phase, you will collaborate with gameplay and level design and help them with implementing VO in our Glacier engine.
  • You will also have input on the way our editor is integrating dialogue, so the player experience and AI feel believable for every in-game decision taken by the player.
  • You will provide gameplay teams with perspectives on dialogue timing, propagation, and custom mastering.
  • Occasionally record temp VO and final VO in-house sessions with local actors when needed.

Who you are:
  • You are an accomplished sound designer with experience working primarily on dialogue sound design in the video games industry, for at least one published AAA title.
  • You are a great communicator and can efficiently collaborate with writers, narrative designers, level, game and sound designers.
  • You are a creative visionary who knows how important dialogue is to the game experience, can set the standard and create the culture for dialogue quality throughout not only the project, but also the studio.
  • You are efficient at finding solutions that can resolute occasional obstacles and get your stakeholders on the same page.
  • You are technically savvy and know or can easily learn your way around implementing VO in our Glacier engine when design teams require it.
  • You have experience recording, editing, mixing and evaluating VO delivered by vendors against specifications and creative bar.
  • You are detail oriented and up for managing sound libraries and administrating dialogue assets (in Sweet).
  • Expertise with audio editing in Reaper.
  • Expertise with voice over processing tools and techniques using creative sound design tools and techniques (i.e. - Waves, Native Instruments, iZotope)
  • Solid grasp of technical implementation and Wwise or F-Mod audio middleware.
  • Solid grasp of Blueprint Unreal, or any other scripting language, to create overviews.
  • You’re a fan of the James Bond universe and how its style should sound and feel like.
We would love it if you had:
  • Work showcases (E. g. in published games, on personal website or on YouTube)
