PK SUMMARY 

PK is currently looking for a creative, self-starting, engineer who is ready to develop new loudspeaker products with passion and precision. 

As a successful candidate, you will be joining our team of passionate mechanical, acoustic, and software engineers. You will be developing and supporting new technologies that are revolutionizing the way sound is experienced at venues across the globe. Our technology includes work class loudspeaker systems, embedded systems and integration with DSP chips and large-scale network communication.

At PK sound people are number one, and these people own the company.   PK is owned by all of us, the people on the ground, in the trenches, doing the real work and who truly have a passion for what our company is about, creating powerful experiences! 

PK is an owner-operated loudspeaker manufacturer and production company proudly headquartered in Calgary Alberta Canada, servicing the world. We pride ourselves on being a fresh alternative to the status quo, providing creative and innovative solutions in an ever-evolving marketplace. It is one thing to hear music; it is another to experience it.  PK Sound was born out of the marriage of acoustic engineering and human emotion, in facilitation of the connection between artist and fan.  We measure performance as much in the reaction of a devoted fan as in the read-out of a lab instrument.  In all we do, wherever the PK logo appears, there can be no compromise, and no end in our desire to achieve new standards of performance, better ways of collaboration, and new avenues of innovation to advance industry technology for all.

There is no doubt we work hard, but we share in the success and we have a lot of fun doing it.  If you are looking for a company with an amazing brand, industry changing technology, an exceptional work place environment and that is poised to aggressively grow on the global market, this career is for you!
