CollMot Entertainment is an innovative entertainment show producer that uses high-tech drones to create memorable live experiences performed in outdoor venues. The company works with event organizers, show content producers and theme parks to introduce standardized show elements, as well as, create entirely unique productions targeting families of all ages. Founded in Budapest, Hungary in 2015, the company’s drone productions have fascinated audiences around the world, including at the FINA Aquatics World Championships (Budapest), the Shanghai Interactive Festival of Theatre, Sziget Festival (Budapest) and the H.C. Andersen Festivals (Denmark).

The ideal candidate is a mature, self-confident, but also thoughtful and responsible person who loves to travel, working with other people, and who enjoys entertainment shows, festivals and high-tech gadgets.
