Apply Now

Attention motion driven, emotional impact striven, hustle-to-seize-the-day livin’ biz development gurus who dare-to-flip goodie two shoes’ creative on their heads and offer a better way. While we have your attention, narrow your focus to the tech startup and B2C sector, nerd out with us on revolutionary product nectar, and ask yourself, do you have what it takes to make Optic Sky a true household tech video agency name?

Founded in 2014, Optic Sky was created with the central purpose of bringing an entirely new level of creative to our clients. Part production company, part post house, and part creative consultancy, it has since grown to compete nationally, working with fortune 100 and 500 companies, top retail brands, and, where you come in, tech startups.

We have launched videos with 130 million views, put aliens on the moon, and turned a studio in not one, but 4 offices in a day’s work. We have fun.

The core philosophy remains Shoot for the Heart, reminding our clients that in the age of endless statistics, we are still creating content for people who need to feel an emotional impact. That impact can come from comedy, drama, or blunt realism, but it is essential to each and every piece we create. It doesn’t mean we take ourselves too seriously (like at all), but we definitely take client briefs and results seriously, and of course, we take growth seriously. SO enough about us, let’s hire, I mean talk about you.

As you might have gathered to this point, we are looking for the absolutely dopest mix of tech lover, bid finder, solid creative appreciator, and business developer to increase our startup clientele. This person must be well established in the industry, whether in tech, agency, or film, and be willing to work with our team to understand and track our capabilities to best serve any and all potential clientele.

The ideal candidate will have experience selling talent in development, production, and post so that we can serve all aspects of OPTIC SKY, because let’s be real- if it moves, we make it. You probably want to talk moola though so here’s the deal:

  • 40K-50K Salary with advancement opportunities
  • 10% New Client fee out of production fee
  • 5% Returning client fee out of production fee
  • 50% Health Care Contribution
  • 3% IRA Match after one year employment
  • Expense allowance tbd

If you look at this and your reaction is “challenge accepted. I’m going to grow this company’s portfolio, have fun doing it, and make a ton of commission while doing it”, you should apply.
