Summer Projects at Bouncing Pixel in Midtown Houston
WORK, WORK, WORK!

WE'RE NOT YOUR ORDINARY CREATIVE STUDIO

We're a creative, problem-solving, detail-oriented group that came together to do great work. Yes, we have a great time doing what we do, but we know we're running a business-- one that has clients with businesses of their own. We take pride in the work we do and we treat all projects as if they are our own. Attention to detail and carefully produced results aren't things our clients need to ask for. Doing things this way is just part of who we are.

WANT TO JOIN OUR TEAM?

We're interested in people who like challenges, creative projects, and learning about new ways of doing things. We recently added four talented artists and developers to our growing team, so all of our seats are filled at this time. Read on and see what we'll be looking for the next time we're hiring.

Mentorships (students, recent graduates...)

Our work is concentrated in three complimentary areas; computer animation, web development, and interactive media. Each market requires creative skills and technical expertise, bringing artists and programmers together to produce high-end work in a team environment.

Where do you fit in? Tell us what you're good at. Show us your work. If you're the right fit, we'll provide you with a place to learn though a mentorship in our office. You'll work on your own independent, self-guided projects. These are unpaid positions that might evolve into paid, full-time positions.

ARTISTS / DESIGNERS / ANIMATORS

Introduce yourself, tell us your story, and include a resume. An online portfolio is required for us to review. Please don't attach work samples as email attachments. We want to see creativity and attention to detail. We won't consider you for an internship if you don't have anything to show us.

PROGRAMMERS

Tell us what motivates you and why you want to join our team. Don't forget to include a resume. Show us some of the work you've done. We're particularly interested in HTML, CSS, Node.js, ActionScript, Mobile Development, AJAX, JavaScript, and database work. We like people who are "big picture" thinkers and problem solvers, and those with their own start-ups. You must be able to work well with others and communicate effectively.
