Matchstiq's take on Shift72

Shift72 mission is to connect audiences with content via brands they trust

The market opportunity ahead for Shift72

With a strong presence in the entertainment markets - particularly in the film festival space - our goal is to continue to grow our market share in that vertical while applying our technology to cement ourselves as a global white-labelled streaming platform for entertainment, events, corporations, associations and galleries.

Over the next year, we will focus our efforts on expanding our European and North American operations while continuing to service the South Pacific, Asian and Latin American jurisdictions.

Why Shift72 is a great place to work

We power Hollywood from Hamilton, New Zealand with a dominant focus on one of the world's most dynamic industries: entertainment. Imagine getting to work with clients like Sony Pictures, Toronto International Film Festival and Sundance from wherever you want to be in the world.

If you've got the talent, and excel in environments that offer you a sense of autonomy and ownership over your operational excellence while also giving you the comfort of strong leadership to guide you where needed, we will build an office around you just as we have done in Italy, Germany and here at home in New Zealand.
