    Generally with games companies doesn't hurt to send along your resume + samples, even if they aren't hiring straight away they will put your name on record if you are a decent programmer.

    I'm an sound producer and electronic musician wanting to produce for video games. I never see any positions advertised so I'm wondering how you source your music and sound engineers?
