Are you in?

We are seeking an Audio Software Engineer to help build out our tools and pipelines to enable rich game audio for the shared game engine and future Blizzard titles.

  • Commit to doing things the right way, even when it's difficult
  • Value diversity and differences in others
  • Ensure discussions include every voice that has something to say
  • Enable technology that makes games accessible to every person who wants to play them
