We’re looking for a skillful Motion Designer and Animator to create fun, original, and if we’re being honest with ourselves, completely nonsensical videos with 2D and 3D effects. We mean weird. Like weird weird. This is an excellent opportunity to work with our Creative Director and other teams (including agencies) to produce compelling videos. As a member of the creative team, you’ll help inform how we communicate the Discord brand to the world and support the creative development of all of our marketing needs.

  • 5+ years experience in Adobe Premiere or Final Cut Pro
  • 5+ years experience with Photoshop, After Effects, Cinema 4D and any other 3D programs
