What will you do?

As a Senior Front-End Prototyping Engineer at X2X you will build user interface elements and compositions that serve to disambiguate the UX design process at X2X.   

The work that you will do will require the mastery of state of the art web and mobile/desktop frameworks as well as the experience and ability to understand and produce working prototypes of user interface elements at any level of granularity.  

You will be instrumental to the design, development and delivery of our core application. 

Our products enable deep collaboration across the lifecycle of film and television production. HTML5 video with cross-browser DRM, frame accurate playback & annotation, review & approval workflows, and granular role-based permissions and security are some of the key technical challenges you'll face building and growing our product. PIX works on highly confidential projects, and so you’ll also be exceptionally trustworthy and discreet. 

You've built sophisticated front-end designs in a mission-critical environment, delivering secure and usable features while advocating for technical excellence and clean, maintainable codebases. 

You’ll care first and foremost about the success, health, and growth of the team.  

Our apps are used by some of the most creative and visually acute users on the planet - feature film directors, VFX artists, producers, and the like.  PIX is installed at virtually every major studio and production facility.
