**This position has been closed.**

Currently, our game is silent.  Actually, there is one sound… Hulk yells “HULK SMASH”.  When you only have one sound, it is very startling when it plays.  In fact, it caused one of our engineers to drop her phone on her face in surprise when she was playing in bed.  Please, save us.

We can’t wait for you to make our game sound awesome.  What style of music would make it feel modern and fun?  How should we think differently about sound effects given we are playing in the Marvel universe? Your expertise is what we need to answer these questions, and to do the work of creating and implementing sounds to bring the game to life.  We’re a small crew with big dreams, and we love to welcome new folks to the team. Come join us!

Company Description:

Second Dinner is located in sunny Orange County, CA. We are a small studio that believes in moving fast and giving everyone a feeling of ownership. People who join us will have a massive impact on both the game and the company.

We appreciate companies that can make remote work successful, but we prefer the serendipity and organic collaboration of being co-located in an office. Due to the COVID-19 shelter-in-place order, we are temporarily working from home.

Second Dinner is fully funded, so we think we have everything we need to take our first game over the finish line. We offer competitive salaries, benefits, and stock options. It feels like a start-up over here, but without the risk of running out of money before our next milestone.

We are an equal opportunity employer that places high value on diversity and inclusion. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, ancestry, national origin, religion, age, disability status, sex (including pregnancy), gender, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, medical condition, genetic information, marital status, military status, or veteran status. A diverse team with varied perspectives makes us a better company and will help us make better games. If you can bring something new to the table and expand our point of view, that’s huge upside. Please apply!
