One enjoys experimentation with the latest tech, finding new ways of using familiar API's, and understands the importance of delivering both an innovative and well-polished product.

• An articulate communicator - one who can create or contribute to concepts, hands-on development and management of technical details of a large account or project, and mentor other developers internally or guide an external vendor

• Experience in the entertainment industry is essential and you should be enthusiastic and immersed in pop culture: movies, mobile technology, games, social apps, comic books, art, music and the like
