We have a small, tightly knit design team, and are looking for candidates who are very creative, self-motivated and able to work both independently and in collaboration with a team. The ideal candidate will have the following qualifications:
- 3+ years in motion design, editing and animation
- Must provide an online demo reel and a very strong portfolio showcasing previous work upon applying
- Extensive experience producing high-quality, pixel perfect designs, from concept to production
- Strong sense of typography, conceptual thinking, animation, motion, attention to details and ability to see the big picture
