Why PlayStation?

PlayStation isn’t just the Best Place to Play — it’s also the Best Place to Work. Today, we’re recognized as a global leader in entertainment producing The PlayStation family of products and services including PlayStation®5, PlayStation®4, PlayStation®VR, PlayStation®Plus, acclaimed PlayStation software titles from PlayStation Studios, and more.

PlayStation also strives to create an inclusive environment that empowers employees and embraces diversity. We welcome and encourage everyone who has a passion and curiosity for innovation, technology, and play to explore our open positions and join our growing global team.

The PlayStation brand falls under Sony Interactive Entertainment, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Sony Corporation.

The Future Technologies Group (FTG) is a cutting edge research and development team that works on developing solutions using machine learning and artificial intelligence. Our main focus is on areas such as text-to-speech, emotion understanding, automatic speech recognition and conversation understanding. We develop solutions and products in collaboration with studios, platform teams and others that will directly affect the way in which games are developed. We are working in the area of audio, video and graphics, wherein we develop products that can automatically generate content for game development. For example, we are working on an AI system that can exactly mimic the speaking characteristics of a human and can automatically generate new audio content, reducing the time taken for audio content creation in games and thereby increasing game development productivity.

We are working on solutions that can automate content creation that can be utilized during game development and playtime. We are working on similar problems that will provide short term and long term solutions to PlayStation Studios, Console Platform groups and Future cloud gaming platform.
