Sound designer (video, film, TV or radio)

Sound designers take care of everything connected with a media product’s soundtrack. They are involved in all stages of media production – from the initial ideas and planning to recording speech, sound effects and music, as well as mixing and mastering in post-production.

Video producer, video technician or production manager

People in these roles are involved in the creation of film, video and TV productions – either on the technical side (e.g. video technician, digital image technician or camera assistant), the creative side (e.g. camera operator, managing editor or 2D/3D operator), or the corporate/organisational side (e.g. video/TV producer, broadcast designer or production manager).

Application developer, solution engineer, usability engineer, (mobile) web designer

These people are experts in the programming, usability and/or design of internet applications. They create and implement applications and installations for specific target groups based on a brief for a range of mobile and other devices. In addition to their expert know-how, they require very good communication, organisational and team-working skills. They also need to be creative and able to work under pressure.
