Careers @ SUPERCRITICAL

Join our amazing team

SUPERCRITICAL is a creative experiential marketing agency in West LA that specializes in entertainment media industries. We build, play, and work hard to create custom marketing assets that give our clients the tools they need to succeed in the competitive media climate. A day at the office could mean building a custom branded website with e-commerce capabilities, designing and fabricating giant life-size creature statues and props, or brainstorming ways to incorporate high-end technology into brand activations.

We’re looking for people who can command both sides of their brains and bring a mix of creativity and business-minded thinking to the table. We want people who know the logistics and best practices of their craft, but also aren’t afraid to think outside the box and try new approaches if the situation calls for it. But we also want people who are fun, add to the culture of our team, and are passionate about the gaming industry.

Because the nature of what we do often incorporates a mixture of art, design, crafting, web, writing, business, and marketing skills, we’re always looking for people with specialized competencies and experience. Whether you’re the best carpenter on the west coast, you rock mad design chops, or you have a specialized skill or talent that we haven’t mentioned but you know you can work it into what we do at SUPERCRITICAL, we want to hear from you!
