About 522

We create custom videos for the internet. Behind every pixel is an incredibly talented, highly motivated team working to turn our collective vision into reality. We’re not waiting for our big break in Hollywood. We’re video producers, project managers, and business developers who live for the challenge of designing incredible video content for the internet. We come to work each day with a few simple goals: to be authentic, capture the truth, and focus on what matters to our audience.

Our mission is clear. We collaborate with brands to rid the world of cheesy videos.

If you want to be a big part of a growing business, if you want a team environment to collaborate on creative ideas, if you want to take the next step in your career–come talk to us.

About You

You're an artist who specializes in creating visual assets for animated videos and websites. You make vector art out of thin air–from human characters to icons to entire illustrated scenes. You spend your days thinking about how complex ideas, products, and brands can be communicated through smart design. You're an expert in Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop (and at least enough After Effects to be dangerous).

You appreciate a client with strong brand guidelines, but you know how to apply your design savvy when a brand's aesthetic isn't so clearly defined. You're not content to simply execute someone else's idea. You know how to communicate a visual concept before production begins and apply a distinct style to each project. Most importantly, you're an effective and upbeat collaborator across multiple rounds of revisions with 522 and our clients.

Applications must include a link to a portfolio of recent and relevant videos. Applications without a portfolio will not be considered. Direct links to Google Drive or Dropbox also will not be considered.

With 522, you will:

    • Work remotely with our art director, creative directors, and project managers to develop storyboards, illustrations, icons, characters, and immersive universes for animation.
    • Deliver concept frames and full storyboards that communicate a well-conceived visual approach.
    • Develop vector assets that meet brand requirements and are easily manipulated in Adobe After Effects.

What's Next?

Bringing the right people onto our team is one of our most important responsibilities. Our interview process, particularly for full-time work, may consist of multiple rounds of phone, video, and in-person interviews. We take our time to make sure the process is done right. We'll do our best to respond to each applicant, but please know that we appreciate your interest even if a position with us isn't an immediate fit.

At 522 Productions, we're made stronger by working with people with a diverse set of backgrounds and perspectives. We're an equal opportunity employer and we're committed to providing reasonable accommodations to any applicant or employee with a disability.
