More about us

We started AirVu Media over eight years ago. For the first couple of years we pioneered flying drones — becoming a permier drone partner in the Caribbean. We still record and edit a lot of drone footage through our content team.

Shortly after that we expanded to become a full service media agency.  Excitingly, this has made us a rare-bird. We’re a digital agency that has virtually unlimited access to video and image content for our marketing and digital teams.

Over the years we’ve been fortunate to work on hundreds of projects for small shops, mid-sized companies, and multinationals. What we are most proud of is that most of our clients come to rely on AirVu Media for many years — we build partnerships that deliver results.

What we offer

  • Truly flexible working schedule
  • Fair salary in a rapidly growing agency
  • Full location independence (remote working is offered to all our team)
  • Friendly and professional team
  • Challenging projects and tasks
  • Regular skills improvement
  • Fun company activities and get-togethers

We work with the best
