Designed for filmmakers by filmmakers.

As the leader of the Web Applications team at PIX, you will be the keystone for development and delivery of our core web application, as well as our web-stack based desktop 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 led teams of front-end engineers 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 your 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.
