Job Description

First off, the Motion Graphic Designer job description is a wishlist, not a checklist. We want to find a super-amazing person to join our team, and we’re well aware that “super-amazing” can come in all different forms. If you’re a little less experienced on a specific bullet point, or if you didn’t go to a fancy school, apply anyway. We look at candidates, not resume

About Us

Standard is a sort of talent management agency and production company for thoughtful YouTubers and podcasters. We do a lot of things, so it’s hard to explain it all in a single paragraph, but our mission is to empower independent creators. Most of our time is spent talking or working with the creators directly, one on one or in a group, coming up with better tools and toys for them.

We’re a distributed company. We have offices in NYC and Denver, but more than 50% of the team is remote, in exotic locations like the UK, the Netherlands, France, and Ohio.

There are things to do and meetings to be had, but we pride ourselves on our flexibility. We think this makes Standard a great place to work for people with families, or whose productive hours tend to be outside of the 9-5. We care about what you do more than when you do it.

About the Role

Standard is looking for a Lead Motion Graphic Designer to join our production team. Your responsibilities include designing and management of Motion Graphic team for the following types of content: longer-form narrative content, short-form YouTube content, internal video content, brand-specific spots, marketing materials, and sizzle reels. You are a creative voice in the making of intelligent and engaging videos for our streaming platform, Nebula, and for our roster of exciting digital creators. You’ll be expected to work efficiently, keep to tight deadlines, communicate effectively and professionally to produce quality work. Additionally as Lead Motion Graphic Designer you would be responsible to supervise the other Motion Graphic Designers and set standards and procedures for all edit work.

How We Hire

We think that diversity is important. Many of us have non-traditional backgrounds. We work in the online education space, so we understand how much can be learned on your own, on the Internet, outside of a classroom.

We’re looking for people who are curious and passionate. Our team should be made up of people of all sorts of backgrounds, gender identities, and bodies who can help to expand our perspective and improve our ability to treat our creators and our audience with thoughtfulness and empathy.

If that sounds like you, we’re happy to care less how many years of experience you have or where you went to school. Apply anyway. And if you have any feedback on how we could reach or appeal to a more diverse pool of talent, get in touch.
