Are you the passionate sound designer with experience of game audio who will join our expanding audio team for The Division 2 at Massive? We’re looking for an experienced sound designer and proficient Wwise-user, used to combining sound and technology to communicate ideas and feelings to contribute to the development of the immersive worlds we’re known for. Our ideal candidate is a professional sound designer who have experience with all aspects of the audio process, and to whom the complex nature of game audio has become a second nature.
As a sound designer you will work closely with the audio team and other departments, to create, mix and implement sound assets for the amazing world of Tom Clancy’s The Division, as well as assist on other audio needs.
This is a permanent position based in Malmö, Sweden, and requires working onsite.
- Creating sound effects, by utilizing studio/foley recordings, synthesis techniques and using pre-recorded in-house and commercial material
- Integrating assets into Wwise middleware and Snowdrop as well as making sure they work as intended in game
- Occasionally mixing and managing dialogue assets
- Keeping sound design documentation up-to-date for programmers, producers and other designers
- Communicating with the audio team as well as other game developers to make sure sound shares the creative vision of the project
- Setting high standards for game audio and educating rest of the development team when necessary
You as a person
Your craft is based on your specialized knowledge within game audio, all the way from foley to implementation in engine and Wwise. You enjoy staying up-to-date regarding development trends and naturally look for ways to improve. This strong foundation enables you to work autonomously on tasks and independently move your work forward – both with and without clear guidelines. Innovating and coming up with creative solutions is second nature to you; you enjoy the thrill of getting an idea and following it through to completion – of course with a focus on an iterative feedback process with your team. Supporting and growing from the many different disciplines is a key driver for you when aiming to push the limits on what’s possible within game audio, and you easily relay your findings, ideas etc. to your team.

- At least one previously published AAA title credited
- Experience with audio recording, processing and mixing

- Proficient and independent Wwise user
- Experience creating and mixing surround content

- Understanding of the technical audio constraints regarding audio implementation, on current console platforms & PC and therefore the ability to accurately predict task duration and understand dependencies
