Justin Spence doin' thangs.

Let’s step back and take a look at the big picture. Things, they are a-changin’, and while we make an effort to stay humble, facts is just that. Facts! Look:

Reviews for Studio One 2 are off the charts. Sales, too. The StudioLive series of mixers are the best-selling mixer line over at Guitar Center. (Those search results are sorted by best-selling, you see.) We’re building great partnerships with amazing companies like SoundCloudRational Acoustics and Celemony. There’s also a bunch of other stuff we can’t even tell you about yet… but you’d get to know if you joined us.

So, it seems as though somehow we are doing something correctly, which means growth, which means we need more FRESH BODIES! If the idea of mucking around with a pack of  audio nerds in the hot Louisiana sun sounds like your idea of a killer work-week, than maybe we should talk.

Here’s the type of professionals we’re looking for, click the titles for the official job descriptions:

Director of Software Development
Program Manager
Senior Industrial Designer
Mechanical Engineer
Technical Support Representative (Do your part in the fight against hold times!)

So, if you think of yourself and PreSonus as a match made in gumbo, click the above job title of your choosing, read the Job Description, and dutifully carry out the contact instructions that follow.

Please don’t call about job availability. Crystal, our HR director, is kinda slammed right now. Growth, remember?
