We take it as read that most candidates can ‘do the job’ but for us that’s not enough. Cultural fit is critical.
Our culture is driven by our belief in creative intelligence – a creed that demands constant questioning. For us the best work has yet to be done. We’re immensely proud of the culture we’ve created that fosters this approach. Open, honest and challenging – we value intelligent opinions not egos.

The main part of the role is building elegant, scalable Flash applications, scoping and architecting projects, contributing to concepting and building rapid prototypes.

As you will know, the role of a Flash developer is quickly diversifying and we our reshaping our Flash team to match. The majority of the work we do in the Flash team is currently Flash, but we are training and exploring; iOS, Andrioid, HTML5, Processing, Open Frameworks, interactive installations etc. Some current labs projects include a wall-size interactive LED installation controlled by Kinect and the web, NFC reading apps to work with Nexus phones and Augmented Reality native iOS apps.
