Web/Print Designer

  • Job Description:
    Animoto is looking for a jaw-droppingly awesome designer to join our marketing team and lead the design efforts on everything from promotional online web pages to print advertising campaigns. We're well-funded (VC round in June 2009) but we're still small, so it's a great time to come on board as we grow like crazy in 2011. You'll be our first full-time designer on our fast-growing marketing team. Your plate will be full. You'll help shape the design direction of our various marketing efforts and ensure that everything produced is both pixel-perfect and cohesively represents the Animoto brand. In addition, you'll working on various website pages that will be seen by millions of people each month. You'll have to internalize our brand, then contribute to the critical decisions that decide where it goes. But here's the catch: we need the best. We've won every sort of award, from the Webbys to SXSW to the Crunchies (Best Design this year!), and we've been covered by all sorts of media, NY Times and USA Today and TechCrunch among others. Your work will uphold our reputation while pushing Animoto's design forward into the coming decade. This is a full-time position at our headquarters in Greenwich Village, Manhattan, NYC. To understand our culture, we're progressive and push the limits, and we have a great, young, vibrant office where we love to come and work hard. Except when we're drinking beers and playing Rockband in our lounge on Friday afternoons.

  • About Our Company: Animoto Productions is a bunch of techies and film/tv producers who decided to lock themselves in a room together and nerd out. Their first release is Animoto, a web application that automatically generates professionally produced videos using their own patent-pending technology and high-end motion design. Each video is a fully customized orchestration of user-selected images and music. Produced on a widescreen format, Animoto videos have the visual energy of a music video and the emotional impact of a movie trailer. The heart of Animoto is its newly developed Cinematic Artificial Intelligence technology that thinks like an actual director and editor. It analyzes and combines user-selected images, video clips and music with the same sophisticated post-production skills and techniques that are used in television & film. Based in New York City with an office in San Francisco, the founders of Animoto include veterans of the entertainment industry and have produced shows for MTV, Comedy Central, & ABC, studied music in London, and played in indie rock bands in Seattle. They continue to innovate in the field of creative artificial intelligence.
