There’s a great mix of art and technology going on in the office, we’re comics-focused, and based in Emeryville behind Pixar – we’re lucky to be pursuing a very special dream of building the next great storytelling company, and we have a lovely studio that combines engineers, storytellers and designers.

Candidates from diverse backgrounds strongly encouraged to apply.
