creative technologist job research (1)

I am freelancing at the moment, but have been wanting to work at the studios/companies/teams that focus on creative technology.

My background is a combination of arts, storytelling, web dev, frontend, and creative coding. Thesedays, I am wondering if I should dive into Touch Designer, or focus more on web-related graphics like WebGL or XR. (Touch Designer is a great, convenient, impactful for audiovisuals, can be used with python or glsl. But it's a standalone visual program)

As a part of my research and decision making process, I'm googling relevant positions time to time to be updated with the trend/industry.

(I realized that the companies would remove the hiring posts after they find someone. So instead of saving the links, I'm copy&pasting the requirements and details just for future reference.)
