Full-time Jobs at TSL


TSL has an open hiring policy for people with exceptional talent. This means it doesn't matter when you apply, if you're exceptional, we'll give you a job. As simple as that.

It could be for YouTube comedy, scrptwriting, coding, photgraphy, writing, editing, videography etc. IT DOES NOT MATTER. Neither do your grades or the school that you went to. The only thing that matters is your portfolio so send it over to and if it stands out, you WILL be asked down for an interview. We don't take the word exceptional lightly so you must really be outstanding or you won't even get a reply.
