Lifting The Lid On Movio LA

The Movio LA office is a colourful place with abundant La Croix. But, more than that, it’s a hub for film lovers, data enthusiasts, creatives, and passionate Movio crew transforming the way cinema and movie marketers bring film to the masses. Whether you want to spend your days analysing vast amounts of moviegoer data for never-before-examined insights, work with the studios and cinemas behind the world’s biggest releases, or push the envelope with Movio’s own niche and challenging marketing opportunities, there’s never a dull moment.

With our headquarters in Auckland, the Los Angeles office is vital in keeping the hum of energy alive and productive between Hollywood and our product development teams. Aside from BAU, the team are constantly on the move between movie premiers, film conferences, bagel runs and Dodgers games. They’re an animated bunch who take their jobs seriously yet jovially, and spend each day working on more and more ways to make moviegoing experiences greater.

We chatted to some of LA’s newest recruits to hear about the action in their own words. 

Caitlin Klein
Account Manager, Movio Cinema

What attracted you to join the LA crew?
Besides finding a place that loves movies as much as I do, Movio is a company that is unique in what they are bringing to the table. The team here is always trying to innovate, predict where the industry is going and what the demand will be - then proactively providing it. 

How would you describe your day-to-day in three words?
Client-interfacing, creative, and strategic. 

If there’s one piece of advice you could give someone who’s thinking about diving into the film and technology space, what would it be? 
In film and technology, the environment is always changing and developing. You need to make sure you are continuing to evolve and being ahead of the curve. Never stop asking yourself: how can I take this to the next level?

Zachary Burkert
Data Scientist

What attracted you to join the LA crew?
I’ve worked in television/movie production in the past and had always been interested in the world of data science and machine learning as a career path. I was excited at the prospect of working at a company that blended data science and a passion for cinema into one. 

How would you describe your day-to-day in three words?
Varied, engaging, and challenging.

What’s one thing that you’ve found surprising about working here, that you weren’t expecting when you applied?
Since Movio is still relatively small, there is a lot of opportunity to work on a wide range of projects that extend far beyond your job description, which I’ve truly appreciated in my time here. You really get a feel for all parts of the business and how they interact with one another, while simultaneously gaining a better understanding of yourself and the sort of projects you find most interesting.

Andrew Barrow
Director of Business Development, Movio Media

What attracted you to join the LA crew?
It had a lot to do with the reputation of Movio in the industry here in LA, which proved to be an accurate one. Movio is sitting on the best data in the movie industry and, on top of that, every member of the team has a tangible impact on both the day-to-day and the overall strategic direction of the company. 

How would you describe your day-to-day in three words? 
Dynamic, inclusive, and impactful.

What’s one thing that you’ve found surprising about working here, that you weren’t expecting when you applied?
Honestly, it was how invested the team was in individual career growth. I've never felt more empowered to forge my path than I have during my time at Movio. 

Marcy Kelly
Senior Product Marketing Manager, Movio Media

How would you describe your day-to-day in three words?
Energetic, social, and fast-paced.

What’s one thing that you’ve found surprising about working here, that you weren’t expecting when you applied? 
I was surprised by how genuine the team is about loving movies. It’s not just a catchphrase - they really live and breathe movies.

If there’s one piece of advice you could give someone who’s thinking about diving into the film and technology space, what would it be? 
The film industry is just beginning to unlock the power of data. There’s so much opportunity to use data and technology to inform (and improve) the way film creatives and marketers think about audiences. It makes Movio an exciting place to be, especially for those who like to challenge assumptions and reexamine the status quo.
