Los Angeles

Senior Animator/Motion Designer for MediaMonks LA

Los Angeles

MediaMonks is hiring an experienced Sr. Animator / Sr. Motion Designer Monk to be the mentor and guardian of the animation realm within our monastery. You will not only be the Gandalf within the animation monks, but you’re also ready to work some out-of-this-world magic. Guiding moving pixels across space with grace is your personal love language.

You will be supporting the overall animation creation of assets of many kinds, helping direct the animators towards success and cohesiveness in a project. Working in conjunction with your team lead, animation director, and producers, you will be part of all stages of the animation and design process. Next to this you coach the animators / motion designers in the team.

You build a close relationship with makers of all disciplines, art / animation directors, team leads, and producers. You are able to talk to clients directly and make their briefings come to life. You're ensuring that the advice and tips shared are the best, most efficient way to go for all animators to learn from. Help identify opportunities where things could be more efficient, even if it means learning a new software in the process, and ensure that brand guidelines are being met. You will be available as a resource to other animators that may need support on a daily base.

As part of our mighty Animation & Motion Graphics department, you’ll create motion graphics for a wide variety of projects, producing work for incredible, super secret brands. The job’s a mix of original work and creating equally awesome adaptations from existing styles and assets.

This means you can team up with world-class developers to work on interactive projects, or collaborate with top-notch artists and illustrators to achieve a specific style. The job is based at our Los Angeles office in sunny Venice, CA.



MediaMonks is one of those (50) companies creative people would kill to work for. You’ll be part of a young, successful, and fast-moving company that is determined to reach Mars before Musk. In addition to an unlimited supply of incredible coworkers, MediaMonks gets you a one-of-a-kind company culture, amplified by all the awards and celebrated with champagne. If you’re the one, we’d love to be the zero so we can make beautiful binary babies together.

If your skills at work and play are of equal greatness, we’d love to hear from you. However, let your work speak first by sending us your most animated projects.

Please be attentive to the requirements for this role and accompany your portfolio with a short cover letter detailing why you’re the right Monk for the job.

MediaMonks is an equal opportunity employer and is committed to equal opportunity for all employees and applicants. The Company recruits, hires, trains, promotes, compensates, and administers all personnel actions without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sex stereotyping (including assumptions about a person’s appearance or behavior, gender roles, gender expression, or gender identity), pregnancy (which includes pregnancy, childbirth, and medical conditions related to pregnancy, childbirth, or breastfeeding), gender, gender identity, gender expression, national origin, age, mental or physical disability, ancestry, medical condition, marital status, military or veteran status, citizenship status, sexual orientation, genetic information, or any other status protected by applicable law.
