We are looking for someone who is excited to work in a startup-minded company and who has the drive and tenacity to become the best in their industry. We are ambitious and a little crazy.

Our videos have passion, and our websites do, too. We are located in the Portland metropolitan area in Hillsboro, Oregon. We have a diverse skill-set and always push ourselves to learn new techniques, perfect our abilities, and stay on the cutting edge of technologies.

SkEye Studios seeks to create purposeful, high-quality videos that evoke the emotions.  Our team members are driven, passionate, and propelled by the desire to do and create something more than just websites—we create an experience.
