[Hiring] Animator / Video Editor @Designity

Mar 15, 2024 - Designity is hiring a remote Animator / Video Editor. 💸 Salary: $36,000 - $80,000 + bonus. 📍Location: USA, Canada.

Our ideal Animator / Video Editor designer at Designity is a motivated self-starter seeking a career path with clear growth opportunities and the flexibility of remote work. With a focus on digital animation across various styles, from 2D to Motion Graphics, working alongside our Creative Directors. As part of our Creative Community, you'll have the chance to contribute to diverse client projects while refining your skills and expanding your portfolio under expert guidance.

Designity is a subscription-based collaborative creative platform that enables creatives and businesses to collaborate more effectively through unique and innovative model. This collaborative approach has convinced both small and large companies, including Calendly, Kung Fu Tea, and Marriott Hotels, to use Designity for their design and marketing efforts instead of traditional, costly, and inefficient alternatives.

We are transforming the creative industry, moving away from outdated and ineffective marketing and design methods. Companies typically hire in-house designers, which is costly, time-consuming, skill-limiting, and requires substantial supervision. Working with traditional design and marketing agencies offers an alternative but at a high cost. Marketplaces like Upwork and Fiverr claim to offer a more affordable solution, but their model lacks reliability and optimization for creative services, causing frustration for businesses.
