About the role

We are extending WeTransfer’s brand identity and we’re looking to grow the team to bring the brand to life through motion design; developing our motion language and delivering on a wide variety of briefs and opportunities that come into the Studio on a weekly and monthly basis.

You will be working closely with brand designers, copywriters, product designers, and motion design peers—playing a major role in establishing the craft within the Creative Studio and WeTransfer at large.
