Junior Engineer

RadicalMedia - New York, NY

Full-time

We are not just a production company. We are not an advertising agency. Nor are we a television studio. Or a technology incubator. We simply make things. And help others make things. Because, at our very core, we are collaborators.

We are a community of artists, directors, producers, coders, thinkers, makers, and doers who try to embrace the future.

We don’t specialize in one thing because a good idea can be anything. But we think we’ve made a few beautiful things so far. And what excites us the most is what we have yet to make.
