Job Description

Our vision is what your eyes see. Here at Samsung, we've successfully changed the way TV sets were viewed - once hunky, bulky sets that displayed dull colors to sexy, thin and sleek panels that captivate viewers with vibrant colors and life-like realism. We’re at it again - with a new endeavour - changing the way advertisements are viewed. At Samsung, we understand that advertisements work best when they entertain and engage the viewers. As we revolutionize the TV viewing experience once again, we want to do the same for ads.  We’re putting together a team of world-class engineers that would help us make this vision a reality.  If you’re ready to take on this challenge and see your work dazzle millions of users, we’d love to hear from you!
