< See all openings Do you like working with purchased animation templates and paint-by-numbers creative direction?

Neither do we.

But, we do love elevating our creative with every keyframe, bezier handle, and motion blur we apply. This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to level up the motion graphics and animation for a hyper-growth startup will let you flex every creative muscle you have and much, much more. ClickUp is a product-led growth company that, up until 2020, had spent $0 on marketing and grew purely from organic, viral growth as users discovered, grew to love, and shared our software. ClickUp is the fastest growing productivity app, growing to 800,000+ teams and a $1 billion 🦄valuation in under 3 years. We’re now one of the fastest-growing software companies in the world.

ClickUp's Motion Graphics Designer will understand what makes GREAT content. You understand the balance between following brand guidelines and being able to infuse creative flare into iterations without going too far "outside the lines".

  • - A great eye for detail and a proactive approach for addressing those details.
  • - Ability to thrive in our fast-paced, ever-changing environment.
  • - Ability to work equally well independently with little direction and in a tightly collaborative environment.
