• Help audio designers in their use of engine/editor tools adding quality of life features as needed
• Maintain understanding of all Psyonix projects to drive memory and performance optimizations for audio
• Work with the audio team to track down and resolve gameplay-related audio bugs and performance issues
• Write clear, maintainable, and functional code
• Profile and tune code to meet performance standards
• Test and document your work

What we're looking for
• Minimum of 5+ years professional audio programming experience working on the game engine code
• B.S. in Computer Science or equivalent work experience
• Strong programming skills in C++
• Knowledge of the Unreal 4 pipelines and framework
• Experience with digital signal processing, including effects, synthesis, granulation
• Experience building features for audio designers in the game industry
• Passionate about game audio and excited for video games
• Someone who is user-focused, passionate, scrappy, solutions-focused, and innovative. These traits equal success at Epic and influence everything we do

Nice to have skills
• Familiarity with spatial audio solutions (i.e. Google Resonance, Oculus Audio, etc.)
• Familiarity with audio programming languages like Max, PD, SuperCollider.
• Experience with the JUCE C++ audio framework.
• Background in music, sound design, or other audio related field.
