Jobs and Internships

At Somatone. we work as a third-party audio post house for a variety of interactive media companies. Since the game audio industry is a cyclical industry, we are very careful in adding new team members.

Before contacting us, please ensure that you have:

1. A sound design / composition reel or an audio website highlighting your past work. Please specifically detail what you did on each project.
2. A resume detailing past audio work (doesn’t have to be strictly video games; film, animation, radio, commercial, audio books, live audio experience counts too!)

Current Openings

Sound Designers

We currently don’t have a need for new sound designers. However, please email us your info at info@somatone.com and we will keep it in our records to be used once we have a need. Please note, we are only looking for Sound Designers who would be able to work in studio in Emeryville. Also, we cannot sponsor applicants from outside the USA.

Composers

With our strong demand for game music, we are open to adding new composers to our ranks from time to time. Most of our composers work in their home studios. Please email your info to info@somatone.com for consideration.
