Anduril’s Design Team is a multidisciplinary, cross-functioning collective working on brand, concept, and industrial design.
 
As a Motion Designer—you will help develop and deploy the kinetic visual language of the Anduril brand. You’ll be responsible for supporting the look and feel of our identity standards across motion deliverables by rapidly iterating on ideas, addressing points of feedback, and finding compelling visual solutions. Navigating condensed timelines and ‘ad hoc’ requests will challenge your ability to multi-task and to collaborate when needed.  Project types will vary across company touch points including (but not limited to):  standard post-production workflows (intro/outro, lower thirds, tracked elements, etc.), infographics, abstract ideas and concepts, HUD and UI elements, technical explainers, mission operations/battle scenarios, and product capability showcases. You will create systems and templates alongside our brand designers to optimize team workflows and raise the quality of future projects. Additionally, you will be expected to explore new approaches and techniques in an effort to constantly evolve and define the Anduril motion-scape.

    • Regularly collaborate with designers, engineers, strategists, stakeholders
    • Contribute to daily design inspiration, critiques, and discussions
