Join Our Team

We are Plexus Entertainment, developers of GoWatchIt, a new start-up making waves in the film industry; and we're currently seeking talented people to join our small, dynamic team. We launched at the end of 2011, and continue to receive great attention from the press. Our current partners include the Sundance Institute, Tribeca Film, Indiewire, RogerEbert.com, BuzzFeed, the New York Times, RADiUS-TWC, Lionsgate, Magnolia Pictures, Relativity Media, and more. We are currently hiring for the following positions:


  • VP of Engineering


    VP of Engineering

    What we do:

    We work with both film studios and consumers. Our users queue movies and TV shows, and receive notifications when they become available. (You queue a movie when you read the review, and get an alert when you can watch it in the theaters, Netflix, or Amazon). We’ve built a valuable empire based on that simple bit of functionality.


    The larger story:

    Our widgets are deployed across a network that gets millions of impressions per month. Partners include RogerEbert.com, BuzzFeed, NYTimes.com, Sundance Film Festival, RADiUS-TWC, Magnolia, and Lionsgate. We are building a proprietary analytical and tracking engine (here’s where you get involved!) to leverage our unique position in the industry. We believe no one else is positioned to have the access and insight to consumer preference data that we do. Here’s a chance to have ownership over a product that will change the whole industry.


    Our newest challenge is the Video Privacy Protection Act (VPAA), which has recently hit the film industry like a storm. Again, our position with studios puts us in an exciting position to pioneer how consumer privacy will work with the film industry in the future.


    It’s an incredibly exciting time in the company, to come on board. The right person will influence our engineering culture, have a hand in some seminal industry technology, and have an amazing time while doing it.
