As a Top 25 Great Place to Work® recipient and a fastest growing tech company in North America according to Deloitte, You.i TV is changing the way users experience TV across mobile. tablet, and connected devices. Interested in building the future of TV? We are actively looking for a Motion Designer to join our growing Design team!
 
When a screen is stretched by a new idea, it never quite regains its original dimensions. It’s a remarkable thing.
 
Deep down, you recognize that the old way of designing applications is broken. It has been for years. But there’s a new way. It’s powered by You.i Engine, and if you ask our designers, they’ll tell you they’re never going back to the old way, where designs get watered down in the development process, and they spend their time negotiating over pixels. The new way lets them bring their visions to life – on every screen, every time.
 
At You.i TV, our motion designers – that’s you! – are responsible for blending the worlds of design and development.
 
In this role you will be responsible for building layouts within After Effects. You will create components, animate content, and bring visual designs to life through interaction integration.

  • Reconstruct visual designs within After Effects.
  • Prepare production files for developer integration.
  • Create animation style guides for art direction & client approval.

  • Demonstrate a strong sense of ownership and attention to detail during the production process.
  • Communicate with development team to ensure consistency of the creative vision.
  • Work independently as well as with internal teams and clients to ensure deadlines are met in a timely fashion.
