ICX Media is a product and technology startup that is building success for content creators through imaginative use of data and technology. We are building our product for digital content creators (filmmakers, directors, producers) to help their growing need to find the right audience, understand that audience, and monetize their creations in the best way possible.

We are using data, analytics and machine learning to create a visually brilliant application for independent content creators. To pull this off we will be using tools such as Clojure, Datomic, Cassandra, Spark, Docker, Kubernetes and AngularJS to allow us to solve problems quickly and push traditional development boundaries. In addition to full-time employees, we are always interested in opening our doors to Summer interns and filling out our hiring roster.
