We’re looking to hire a full time Animator at Column Five. We are seeking an animator who is able to solve complex design problems using skills in storyboarding, design, animation, and creative storytelling. Advanced skills in After Effects, Illustrator, Photoshop and the ability to translate static design into memorable motion graphics are all required for this role.
Beyond motion and animation skills we are looking for a person with a solid understanding of foundational design elements from compositional layout to illustration to typography.
Animators are vital team players and must be able to collaborate to create a vision, work under tight agency deadlines and have humility to be responsive to feedback from the team and our clients on each project.

Our company is relaxed, but we work at a fast pace. We thrive in an environment filled with competition, camaraderie, and collaboration. While we value sharp minds and professionalism, we like to surround ourselves with people who have a sense of humor and who understand what it means to be confident yet humble.
