Open Positions

Sound Designer (Freelance)*

Experiment with outlandish ideas, create sounds nobody’s ever heard before, and push the industry beyond where it is now.

Outlier sound designers work with our composers to make sounds for scoring projects. We also work with sample library companies like Output to create tools for music producers, composers, and other musicians.

Check out our SoundCloud to see how our team’s work is used out in the wild.

*UPDATE [October 24, 2018]: Everyone submitting Sound Designer applications from this day on will be considered as potential collaborators, but likely won’t be brought onto projects we’re working on for the next few months. Considering that, submitting an app would be a long term move for you, so it’s probably better to reach out to one (or all - we’d love that) of our team members, engage with them, and become part of the communities they hang with. That said, the application is made for us to learn as much about you as we can, so you’re welcome to fill it out.

There's a very "people first" culture 'round here, and we're constantly looking for ways to contribute value to everyone we meet – whether we work together or not.

(We recommend writing your answers on a separate sheet, then copy + pasting your answers into the fields below. Some browsers get weird.)

Name *
Name
What name do you go by? (i.e name abbreviations, nicknames, etc.)
RESUME
Use this space to tell us whatever you want about yourself. (e.g. What are you about? Where are you in your career right now? What's your outlook on the state of the industry and why? What's your day-to-day mindset?) Treat this as you would an informal cover letter.
Relevant past positions, projects, and endeavors. Also let us know if you've had any noteworthy experiences while on the job (eg. interesting ways you've solved problems, creative ways you've accomplished tasks, interesting places or people you have access to, etc.)
List out what software, hardware, or equipment you're good at using - especially ones relevant to the responsibilities and requirements of the position you're applying for.
How are you staying ahead of the curve? Tell us about your favorite ways to learn: multi-hour practice days, books, podcasts, websites, mentors, etc.
i.e. what are you looking to get from working together?
What's inspiring you? What styles do you enjoy producing? What are you looking to produce more of?
We're still in startup mode, so team members always end up doing more than one job. What are some skills - other than what you're applying for - that could help the team succeed? (e.g knowledge in marketing, graphic design, video editing, building music hardware, coding, great at writing emails, etc.)
