I'm gearing up to start a degree in Computer Science. My goal is to take my audio/game industry knowledge, combine it with coding experience, and jump into Audio Programming for games a few years from now.
I was wondering if any recruiters, programmers, or audio guys out there have any experience with an Audio Programming role or the interview process for that position.
Example - Are there specific things on a resume/portfolio that recruiters looking for? Do you primarily search for people with C++ experience, or do you look for someone who is well-rounded in different languages? Do you have any interview testing processes that a candidate should be prepared for? Does the Audio Programmer typically have to work his way up in your company, or can it be an outside hire?
Thanks for your time reading/answering these questions. I have researched Audio Programmer job postings/requirements, but am a bit unfamiliar with the hiring process for this specific position. Before I start my classes, I just wanted to make sure I'm heading and the right direction and prepare myself as much as I can for this type of position. Thanks again!
