The first time we heard about a company hiring a sound engineer, we were a bit skeptical.
The company didn’t have a sound team and its hiring process was a bit more formal than most.
It was also hard to get in touch with someone about a sound job, since you’d need to send them an email asking if you were interested in working on the project.
But once we talked to our recruiter, he told us that SoundCloud’s hiring process is different from most other sound companies, and that it was actually very easy to get a job.
“You just ask,” he said.
“The whole process is very simple and you don’t need to get anything from us.”
It turns out that Soundcloud hired an audio production company for the sound team, and we were able to interview with a SoundCloud employee and work out an interview process.
We were able, too, to get some work done, and the company is paying us.
“It’s very similar to other sound jobs you could do, like sound design,” the SoundCloud recruiter said.
SoundCloud says that it uses its hiring practices to bring in people who have a passion for their job, and has been using these recruiting methods to get job applicants to its platform.
“We hire people who love the sound design, because the more people that are able to get to know our sound team the better,” the company wrote in a blog post about the hiring process.
“In addition to the benefits of being a Soundcloud employee, SoundCloud offers a very competitive salary range.”
SoundCloud also uses a flexible workweek that lets people work on their projects all day, every day.
And it’s not just SoundCloud that uses a sound hire.
There are many companies out there that hire sound designers, too.
Here are a few of the more notable companies that employ sound designers.
SoundLabs: A company that employs sound designers A couple years ago, SoundLaps started hiring sound designers for its video platform.
The platform’s sound team had been on the job for a couple of years and they were just starting to feel the pressure to keep up with the demands of the platform’s users.
“They really didn’t know how to use the technology,” said SoundLips Sound designer, Jason Pare, about the initial hires.
“There were a lot of people on the team that weren’t even sound designers.”
In 2014, Pare and cofounder Chris Pardo started a company called SoundLamps to hire sound designers and develop the platform.
Now, the company has more than 1,200 members working on its video application.
Pare said that SoundLapses hires from a mix of different backgrounds, ranging from students and recent graduates to seasoned professionals.
“A lot of the people we hire, we’ve had experience working on things like movies and TV shows,” he told TechCrunch.
“And so it’s really important to have that experience in your skill set.”
SoundLives hires from different backgrounds and competencies, too It is possible to find other companies that are hiring sound designer jobs.
“Some companies do hiring, but you have to be in-person, or they will be a little bit of a hassle,” Pare told Tech Crunch.
“But the other companies we’ve talked to have had a lot more success.
We are really happy that we’re able to help people.”
Pare is looking forward to working with SoundLoves, the SoundLays, and SoundLaptops on a larger project.
“As we get more of these companies, we’ll see if we can get them on board,” he added.
“If they want to work with us, then great, but if they don’t want to, that’s fine.”
SoundLab: A technology company that hires sound designers SoundLab was founded in 2013 by former SoundLasts Sound designer Jason Paren.
“When we started out we were kind of just looking to hire audio talent,” he recalled.
“I really think it’s important that people have the right skills, and when they have those skills they can be successful in their career.”
In 2013, SoundLab hired a group of former Soundlasts and SoundLab members to work on its product.
The SoundLab team was given a budget to work at their own pace and spend time with other SoundLab alumni and Soundlab alumni in the studio.
“One of the most important things about being a sound artist is having the right mindset and the right passion,” Paren said.
He added that the team would get together once a week and “work out what’s working and what isn’t working,” which would help them “see what works and what doesn’t work.”
“We wanted to create a product that had a certain look and feel that people could fall in love with,” Pared said.
The product that SoundLab created was called SoundLab Pro.
The startup is currently in its second year of hiring, and its team has grown from 1 to 6 members.
