Mobile Application Developer

About Powster:

We are a creative agency based out of the London Fields area in Hackney. Our team works towards three main streams of output:

1. Our Showtimes Platform: which powers most of the major movie websites across the world boasting all the major movie studios as our clients.

2. Our Creative Builds: which can range from projects making interactive music videos to projecting tweets on the houses of parliament.

3. Our Products Builds (Powster Labs): which includes a variety of in-house and client-facing custom builds for movie-discovery and marketing tools.

We like to think that anything is possible when pitching, and if we haven’t done it before we’ll pull together, work it out and make it happen. This comes from having a drive to make the unseen! When bolstered by the very diverse and strong team we can adapt to anything thrown at it, from technical, interactive builds to large scale video productions.
