We are looking for an experienced, innovative, and passionate person to become the next Creative Developer at Vertigo.

As a Creative Developer at Vertigo, you will work within a dynamic, emerging user experience team to build the working front-ends for a wide range of custom applications.

• Mobile: iOS, Android, and Windows Phone
• Rich Internet Applications: Silverlight
• Native Windows Client: WPF

If this sounds like you or something you would be interested in, we would like to hear from you. Please send your resume to Bee Tan (
