  • Execute projects with attention to detail and on deadline-driven timelines.

What we’re looking for:

  • 5+ years as a motion designer/video editor at an agency, production company, or in-house creative team.
  • You’re a passionate motion designer and love to geek about the latest plugins and motion trends.
  • At the core, you’re a storyteller with a knack for designing  compelling stories in collaboration with designers, writers and within the Pinterest brand standards.
  • You have a keen eye for design and an innate sense of story rhythm.
