As an Audio Programmer in our Wilmslow studio (near Manchester) you would be advancing the audio technology for a proprietary game engine powering a huge universe, covering the scale the sound of the movement of a player’s clothing all the way to the roar of a capital ship.

You will also develop the audio technology that allows sound designers to bring a world to life, and refine the workflow that gives access to it.

All of this will be achieved using the latest PC hardware and APIs to produce a fast and scale-able suite of audio technology to power some of the most ambitious games ever developed.

Founded in 2012, Cloud Imperium Games creates cutting-edge videogames that defy expectations. We’re currently developing Star Citizen, a record-breaking multiplayer online space sim, and Squadron 42, a cinematic single-player adventure set in the same universe. Join us as we break boundaries and make videogame history.
