The Challenge Ahead:
EA’s UK game studio Criterion is opening up several yearlong internships, spanning all game development crafts.
We are growing our team with talented people who will help us take a huge leap forwards, and you, the next generation of game makers, are central to this ambition. As we explore new possibilities within gaming, challenge our own beliefs and step outside of our comfort zone, we need fresh perspective that challenges convention and inspires us to grow.
To that end, we’re looking for a talented and motivated Intern Audio Designer who will help us on this journey, while learning about the field of games art hands-on.
What an Audio Intern does:
Criterion considers audio to be essential for an exciting and immersive gaming experience. The audio team brings our games to life by crafting soundscapes including emotive character interactions, rich environmental ambience, visceral physical impacts, and tightly designed vehicles. Collaborating closely with the Audio & Narrative Director and wider development team, an Audio Intern will assist with audio design, implementation, recording, and organisation whilst working hands-on to create our next incredible project.
What an Audio Intern needs:
- Experience with applied audio studies as part of the degree
- Working knowledge of an industry-standard DAW
- Samples(s) of previous audio work
- A genuine interest in sound design
- Familiarity with games of any kind
Please note: While music is important to us, you will not do any composition work.
We appreciate the work our Interns provide, so here at EA we like to offer you great facilities while you are working onsite including:
- Free onsite gym
- Two annual parties (Summer and Christmas)
- Onsite cafe
- Games Area
More importantly, because we love working with world-class creators, we maintain a culture that thrives on creative freedom and autonomy.
We thought you might also want to know:
We are based in the lovely town of Guildford – 35 minutes from central London.
Our office is a short walk from the train station and town centre.
