This is a full-time position with PTO and health benefits and would require you to work in our Pacific Beach (San Diego) office. Just yards from the beach, our newly-renovated office has a fridge stocked with Red Bull (and other beverages), an open and collaborative workspace, Xbox 360, company surfboards, and lots of big screen LCD TVs among other things.

This is not a position for the lazy or unmotivated, but if you are driven and passionate about your work, the environment is low-stress without any micro-management.

Please provide a portfolio of your best and most recent work in order to be considered for this position.
