Sound Editor (Pro Tools)

New York, NY


Starts Feb 01

Full Time

  • Title: Staff Position
  • Job Requirements: Must be local to location (or willing to work as a local).

One of our long-time staff engineers is moving on, so we are in search of someone to fill their shoes!

We’re a boutique audio post-production facility; a small team that gets lots done. We work on a variety of media: long-form television, commercial work, movie trailers, films, and whatever else people want to make sound better.

This engineer will ultimately be responsible for dialogue edits, sound design, and mix passes for all of these types of media; running recording and mixing sessions with clients in the room; and contributing to general studio maintenance and improvement. They will also be responsible for being awesome.

This is a full-time position with business hours from 10am-6 or 7pm every day. Occasional earlier starts or later ends will happen. It’s a client-facing position so requires someone to be local. Generous benefits available including health insurance, 401(k) match, and paid vacation time each year.

The company is well-run and professional, and we have truly excellent clients who we really enjoy working with. We prioritize extremely high-quality work, but also don’t take ourselves so seriously that we can’t enjoy ourselves (or know when it’s time to call it a day and go home at night). We value the team and vibe, and having an environment our clients find relaxing and that we like coming to every day.

We’re casting a fairly wide net with this search, prioritizing finding the right person over the exact background or right amount of experience. We’re willing to invest in training someone more junior or paying someone more senior.

The non-negotiables:
• commitment. We’re looking for someone who’s got the long-term in mind. While our net is cast wide, we do need someone who’s intimately familiar with Pro Tools, committed to audio post as their career, and looking to stay awhile.
• flexibility. Because of the mix of types of work we do, sometimes (oftentimes…) plans change in a day (in an hour… in five minutes…) and we have to roll with it. We find some people love operating this way and others find it a giant nuisance. We’re looking for someone who loves it. :)
• willingness to work our way. We have a pretty specific workflow here that allows us to collaborate most efficiently to get the job done, and need someone who’s willing (nay, happy!) to integrate into it.
• growth mindset & openness to feedback. If you don’t actively plan to be a better engineer a year from now (or six months from now… or six days from now…) then this won’t be the right job for you. Our process also involves a lot of feedback in order to ensure everyone is working at the highest standard possible and consistently with the company workflow & aesthetic, so a comfort with and appreciation for this input is necessary.
• helping hand. We’re a small company, which inherently means we all wear a lot of hats. We’re all happy to jump in wherever we can be helpful, regardless of ‘status.’ Sometimes it’s the intern bringing coffee into a session for clients, other times it’s the owner.

The hopes & dreams:
• audio tech-savvy.
• computer tech-savvy.
• nominal familiarity with html or computer programming languages.
• background in long-form television.
• experience working in a studio.

Getting this hire right is VERY important to us, so it will be a multi-step process that will likely take at least a month from start to finish.

Check out our work and a bit more about us at To apply, send us a résumé, your website or portfolio of work (if available), and a brief (no more than 300 words) letter outlining your background and what you’re hoping for in your next position. Please note that we will read and review ALL applications, but will only be able to respond to those we think are potentially a good fit for the position.

Don't stop now... keep hunting!
