Hi All,

Artificial Intelligence to create adaptive music in realtime. Our AI system 
empowers people - no matter their musical knowledge - to create immersive 
soundtrack simply and quickly.

This technology has applications across all of digital media, with a 
specific focus on interactive experiences like video games, Virtual 
Reality, and Augmented Reality.

We're a team of experts in Music & AI–with two PhDs and one Master's degree 
between the 3 co-founders. Our collective experience in music informatics, 
AI and composition is over 3 decades, and our work has won awards in both 
academia and industry.
We're looking to hire a creative sound designer full time. Below is a job 
description. If you think you're the right candidate and would like to know
