Do you identify as a Game Designer who specializes in Audio? As a Sound Designer, you complete the equation that breathes life into the game world, and helps players to succeed in it. Bungie needs an audio artist eager to work in multiple areas and styles to join a brand-new project. This is a unique opportunity to join an audio team at the ground level and help define its signature sounds for years to come.

With the uncertainty and rapidly changing circumstances surrounding COVID-19, most positions at Bungie are expected to onboard and work from home for a significant portion of 2021. In 2022, most Bungie employees will adopt a flexible schedule working from home part time (outside of positions identified as either 100% onsite or fully remote in WA & CA). Currently only a select range of positions are available for full-time remote work in WA & CA (please review location for details). Prospective employees located outside of CA & WA will need to establish WA state residency within 45 days of a start date. Bungie’s work from home, flexible work schedule, and remote policy is subject to change at the company’s discretion.
