Who We Are

We’re 522, and we’re on a mission to rid the world of cheesy videos. Behind every pixel we create exists an incredibly talented, highly motivated team relentlessly committed to producing incredible video content that elevates our clients’ brand.

About You

You're a designer who specializes in motion graphics and animation. You know the deepest, darkest secrets of the Adobe Suite, especially After Effects, Premiere, Photoshop, and Illustrator. You thrive in short-form, whether you're crafting a 90 second animated explainer or integrating visual effects into a single live-action shot.

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 communicate new products and complex ideas through 2D animation.
    • Take projects from concept to completion with minimal hand-holding.
    • Deliver concept frames and video files throughout various stages of the production process.
    • Navigate 522's stock music, video, and photo libraries to select assets that meet concept and brand requirements.
    • Provide well-organized project assets to 522 once the video is finalized.

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.

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.

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.
