Why is this role good for you?

This is an amazing opportunity to launch your career alongside Hollywood and tech giants in a pioneering startup. You will work in a state-of-the-art environment, committed to bringing Hollywood and Silicon Valley mindset and culture to the Serbian market.

About this company

Wonder Dynamics is a media-tech startup from the USA, focused on the future of filmmaking, by developing an AI production tool that will reinvent the production and post-production processes. Their mission is to make the use of visual effects more accessible, which would result in Indie film producers delivering blockbuster-level VFX with a significantly smaller budget than before.

The company’s co-founders are Tye Sheridan, who starred in Steven Spielberg’s “Ready Player One”, and Nikola Todorovic, a visual artist. They have lined up a roster of Hollywood and tech mavens for their advisory board. Their business is global and B2C oriented, with some of the clients being huge names in the industry, such as Warner Bros and Universal Studios. 

They have also collaborated with companies like Comcast, AT&T, and others. Wonder Dynamics is backed by the Founders Fund, a leading Silicon Valley VC that funded giants such as SpaceX, Facebook, Spotify, and DeepMind.
