Hi there! We’re Motion Giraffx.

We’ve been an agile, Houston-based studio since 2014, scooping up amazing projects before Death-Star corporations ruin them. We’re proudly world-class, insanely on top of our sh*t, and thrilled to get the job done each and every time.

But here’s what’s most important: We care deeply about our clients and each other. It’s this gratitude that inspires us to come to work every day, fueled by a real purpose. If this resonates with you, we sincerely hope you’ll join us for the ride.

Why you should join the team

Feeling the vibes so far? Awww yeah. Here are a few reasons we think you’ll love being at Motion Giraffx:

> Work on genuinely interesting projects that’ll help you turbo-charge your skills.

We’ve crafted top-notch animation for years, so the coolest companies hit us up for fascinating projects. You’ll gain loads of new experience with 2D and 3D motion graphics — working on commercials, explainer videos, product-launch media, and much more. We’re also aces at oil-and-gas and energy-sector productions, so you’ll develop deep expertise in these niches.

> Enjoy 100% remote-work freedom.

Imagine ditching your soul-sucking morning commute. Working from the comfort of your own home. And even creating world-class work in your PJs.

It’s all possible when you work here.

We currently run a distributed team because it lowers our overhead, lets us pay higher salaries, and offers the freedom to hire the best talent in the world (i.e., you). If you’re good at what you do, we trust you to do it wherever you live.

> We pay for your software and computer if you need it.

We’re serious about helping you produce incredible work and grow as a creator. When you join our team, we’ll arm you with cutting-edge software you’ll use to create magic. We’ll even pay for brand-new computing equipment if your hardware needs an upgrade.

Think of it as a bonus for joining the most badass animation team ever.

> A hands-down amazing place to work.

We’ve worked at agency jobs we hated. That’s why we’re obsessed with building an amazing work dynamic at Motion Giraffx.

We want this to be a studio that brings you joy, each and every day. We work closely with development training professionals to make sure we’re on the right track. You’re always welcome to share your thoughts, and your opinion always matters.

Spend your evenings with your loved ones, not grinding away on late-night projects. Internal politics? Yuck. Leave that in the corporate dungeon. This is a safe, positive place where we treat each other with the utmost respect.

> Oh, and three weeks of paid time off each year.

When you join the Motion Giraffx team, you pour your heart and soul into your work. We love that, and we reward it — with plenty of time for you to recharge.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it…

Here are a few high-impact activities you’ll do on the regular to keep this studio buzzing with energy:

  1. Devour scripts and storylines, and coordinate animation strategy.
  2. Share your one-of-a-kind ideas with the Motion Giraffx team and our clients.
  3. Craft dynamic storyboards for initial stages of production.
  4. Create show-stopping models, drawings, and illustrations.
  5. Join images with background graphics and special effects.
  6. Synchronize frames and audio for a perfect fit.
  7. Offer invaluable guidance during the editing process.
  8. Collaborate with our brilliant production crew (designers, directors, etc.).
  9. Manage your time and deadlines like a boss.

With that in mind, we’d be ecstatic if you:

  1. Have serious skills as an animator. (We can’t wait to see your demo reel or portfolio!)
  2. Are a whiz at project management.
  3. Can put in eight hours a day of remote work at your home office.
  4. Wow us with your skills in CGI software (Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects, 3ds Max, etc.).
  5. Excel as a creative storyteller who loves to present your ideas.
  6. Easily meet deadlines and can keep within budget.
  7. Love working and communicating with a lively team of animation pros.

Got schooling?

If you have a degree in computer animation, 3D or graphic design, fine arts or a relevant field, please let us know!

But you’re by no means disqualified if you don’t have one. Ultimately, what’s most important is that you love what you do and produce top-notch work.

We know amazing animators can come from anywhere, and we’d be delighted for you to surprise us. If you’ve crafted projects that you know will knock our socks off, we’d be ecstatic to see it.

We’re so pumped to hear from you.

Ready to apply? High five! That’s music to our ears.

Simply scroll down and fill out the application form below. Tell us a little about yourself, then attach your demo reel or portfolio. Bonus points if you’d like to introduce your fine self in a cover letter, and if you have a snazzy resume to show us.

If we like what we see, we’ll be in touch soon! We’ll ask you to complete a short, paid animation project, then we’ll wait excitedly for you to blow our minds. (With your skills, that should be a piece of cake.)

So, ready to kick ass at the best job you’ve ever had?

Over the years, we’ve lovingly crafted our studio to attract someone just like you.

We wanted to skip to work every single day… not waste away the years at a depressing corporate factory.

So we dreamed up our perfect studio, filled with our favorite people and humming with the most interesting work imaginable. We simply love working with each other, and our clients come back again and again because of our deep commitment to them.

This is the place we hope you’ll want to work. The place where you’ll grow, laugh, and thrive with a team who truly cares about you. Are you ready to take the leap? Let us know. We’d be absolutely thrilled to take it with you.
