Your Chance to Join Cogbolt

Cogbolt, LLC is searching for a new employee, someone extremely passionate about creating digital products for the future.

How passionate? Almost to obsession. Someone who loves Sci-Fi movies and video games  to the point of frequently staying up all night on their computer for work and play. And, needless to say, a youthful energy that can bring a new point-of-view to our team.

Cogbolt is less concerned about the candidate's experience and more concerned about the candidate's creativity and ambition. (Members of our staff in the past have been trained on how to use Photoshop and Illustrator and code in Javascript and PHP.)

This is an entry level position, the pay isn’t great, but the opportunity for advancement and the potential to learn on the job is huge

If this sounds like something for you, contact Daniel Harris • 702-483-8487 •
