About us:

Liquid Violet are an audio production company based in the heart of Covent Garden. After being acquired by Keywords Studios in 2014, we opened our state- of-the-art facility in 2018 to give our voice production and recording heritage a home. This has enabled us to expand further into original production, casting, and other audio services such as Atmos mixing, sound design and mastering. Our renowned success in casting and recording for games has now branched into series and features, and we are proud to be a Netflix NP3 studio.

About role:

The role will primarily be based at our studio in Covent Garden, London, but we have also developed remote recording workflows which will continue due to the global nature of our clients. The engineer will also assist in post- production, studio maintenance and preparation of assets.

You will work across all service lines of the production business, supporting the technical preparation of projects, recording dialogue and VO to the highest technical standards, and delivering projects within given timeframes and deadlines. Excellent communication is essential when dealing with the internal team, the wider Keywords group, and with clients such as Blizzard Entertainment, Nintendo, Riot Games and Netflix.

You will be employed full-time, with standard hours being 9:00am - 6:00pm Monday-Friday. Evenings are often necessary and very rarely weekends. Flexible working hours are available for evening work. Salary is dependent on experience.

About you:

We are looking for an energetic and proactive individual who can apply informed initiative when troubleshooting technical issues. The successful applicant will work to deliver optimum technical efficiency in the recording of voice talent, enabling the company to deliver a competitive, agile and flexible response to the developing needs of our clients.
