We’re really proud of what we’ve achieved so far but we’re not stopping there, as we’re now looking for a new Audio Producer to join our SNK Studios team.
Our Culture - Defined By Our Team
We're honest and open. A swear jar would bankrupt us all. We're all equal and we laugh at ourselves...and each other.
We're unconventional, productive and we do whatever it takes to get the job done. We like burgers (meat, veggie and vegan).
We always make time for each other and our clients. We live and breathe audio. We're people pleasers. We're all very different and we love that about our team.
We praise each other and recognise achievements. We like going to the pub. We don't quit, we fix. We're kind and caring. We make a difference. We stick together and pick each other up when it's needed.
Some of us like to dance! We say ‘please’ and ‘thank you’. We're passionate and motivated. We always leave our clients feeling good.
