JUXT is an award-winning agency based in San Francisco. We make websites and apps but we are more than a digital shop. We create large-scale interactive experiences but we’re more than an experiential firm. We’re not synergistic. We’re not 360. We’re not an advertising agency. We are unlike anything we’ve done before. We are a modern creative agency of tinkerers, believers, dreamers, and creators. We imagine things that work.
Our current client roster includes NFL Networks, Cisco, Toyota, Scion, Volkswagen, and Honda.
With a newly established leadership team and a renewed commitment to servicing the Bay Area and beyond, we are looking for exceptional talent to join us immediately in a variety of key roles.
