IT Director

September 13, 2021

ESKI is composed of two brands that service distinct markets: PixMob and klik. PixMob helps create immersive crowd lighting experiences at live entertainment events, making the audience part of the show. At klik, we create technology that’s connecting people in real, human ways and taking the corporate event landscape into the digital age. We design an end-to-end experience for our customers and consumers - everything is imagined and brought to life at our Montreal studio from software to hardware, to production and operations live on-site.

Design and innovation are at the heart of our DNA. Nimbleness is an essential component of our culture, as our field of work requires frequent adjustments to remain at the forefront of trends. Our team shares a few common traits, including a thirst for knowledge and knowhow, humility and striving for excellence. Together, we form a mosaic of cultures, personalities and beliefs, and several of us have had non-traditional career paths. We work hard and celebrate with conviction.

The past year was definitely the toughest in our 16 year company history. But we prevailed and now that live events are coming back in full swing we’re more than ever committed to our mission: Creating togetherness.
