The discovery of gold, the creation of paper money, mortgages, ATMs. We’re at the next of those moments right now, and there is no more exciting place to invest your creativity than directly at this intersection of technology and adventure. work comes when creative people roll up their sleeves and solve problems together.

  • Work holistically across film, animation, illustration, digital design and graphic design
  • Take full accountability for your work and exercise consideration of every detail
  • Innovate and explore the edges of technology and creativity
What we look for
  • Design experience in startups or agencies, working with a variety of teams on a multitude of projects
  • A strong portfolio showcasing detail-oriented design work, strategic thinking and provocative creative
  • Excellence in typography, color, layout, and composition
