We are hiring. Producers + IA, Coders, Graphic Designers.
Massive Interactive is one of the original pre-boom web design companies still standing. We are in Sydney Australia. We develop software solutions and visual designs and architecture for websites, front end, back end. Software, interactive television, mobile technology, video production, hardware development, coolhunting and concept development. There is nothing we can’t do and we are pretty good at it. We have so many awards we have a serious issue storing them all.
When I interview someone, I can pretty much tell within 10 seconds if you have the right personality and temperament.
As for coders, I like to hire Alpha geeks.
The most critical question for me used to be
“Do you code at home?”
Now it’s been added by
“Do you have a blog where you talk about what you code?”
I can tell more from reading your blog about your competency, ability to communicate and personality than any turgid interview process.
Then there is the issue of cultural fit.
Massive has and continues to have a strangely high proportion of Artists, DJs, VJs, Musicians, Writers and Poets.
Imagine a software, web design company founded by people into alternative music.

Massive is located smack in the middle of Oxford St, Sydney the gay capital of the southern hemisphere, 20 minutes walk from the center of Sydney. If you’re not comfortable seeing displays of affection between members of the same sex while walking to work, then perhaps this is not the place for you. Our location means you may have an issue choosing between the hundred or so places there are to eat within walking distance.
At Massive we have a sense of humor.
So I think you get the idea.
