Audio Programmer

Fatshark is looking to hire an experienced Programmer with a passion for audio that will support and further improve our audio tools pipeline.

More specifically, you will work on Warhammer Vermintide II as well as new exciting projects with the benefit of having a close relationship with our strong community of passionate gamers.

Onwards, you will thrive in the forefront of game audio programming - constantly pushing the limits of next-gen audio technology.
