With offices in Los Angeles, Auckland and London, we're transforming the way movies are marketed all over the world : both studio-side and cinema-side.
As part of Vista Group International Ltd (NZX & ASX : VGL), a world-leading enterprise comprised of eight businesses that provide software, digital and online solutions to the film industry, we're in great company.
But we're often on the look-out for new brains and faces to join us along the way. If film, data, and technology seem like the perfect fit, it's time to apply.
