Our mission is to create world-class entertainment, and we work in a manner that is different from the industry. We believe that our games reflect the means by which they are produced. The ones that are crafted in an inspiring climate have qualities that resonate with gamers. At DICE LA, you will have a creative stake in everything you do. We have a studio culture where everyone is a game maker, no matter what they do. We also firmly believe that to achieve our best, one must have a balance between work and personal life.

We are looking for wildly creative applicants who have a real passion for games, great social and communication skills, and a positive, teammate mentality. We want this to be the studio where you do the best work of your career.

This is an Audio Artist position with the DICE Los Angeles Audio Team. Your primary focus will be to work as a Sound Designer, creating audio assets for in-game playback. You will work with a team of other Audio Artists in a collaborative and creative environment.

• Technical proficiency and knowledge or experience with any visual scripting program is a plus (such as Reaktor, Max, Pure Data, UDK)
• You are committed to growing within your craft, and improving your skill-set as a Sound Designer

Responsibilities:
• Help our Audio Team craft an outstanding Audio experience
• Be an essential sound design contributor within our Audio Team
• Use a DAW to edit, name and organize sound files (sound effects, speech, music)
