Can You Believe It?! it's a Full-time job

Modicum is looking for a Motion Designer in New York, NY, USA.


Modicum is looking for a highly creative, experienced NYC-based Motion Designer. In this role, you will design and animate short-form branded content including show packages, motion systems, UI animations, explainer videos, infographics, micro-animations, and gifs along with some light video editing and audio sourcing. Your work will require conceptual thinking and collaboration with the creative team to design storyboards and bring them to life. You’re a great fit if you like design but love animation, work well with others, try new things, and don’t shy away from a challenge.

We’re design nerds, not design snobs. As an independent digital-first creative agency, we have the freedom to shed the bureaucracy and dive head first into making awesome stuff for all kinds of clients, including Google, Samsung, YouTube, HSS, and a ton of startups and younger brands. At Modicum, we’ve built a diverse, ego-free roster and we believe in letting our team work how they work best—flexible, hybrid scheduling, direct access to clients, and a focus on nurturing rather than pigeonholing talent. We build genuine relationships with coworkers, give everyone a voice, and embrace true work-life balance with predictable hours and PTO that’s actually O.

5+ years of professional animation experience
A robust reel featuring a range of diverse projects, motion principles, and styles
A strong connection with design, typography, color and composition
Expertise in After Effects and Illustrator
Experience in Cinema 4D
Familiarity with Sketch or Figma
Strong communication skills to articulate your POV while receptive to feedback
Ability to commute into our NYC office once deemed safe.

You’ll get the things you need, plus the balance you want:
Unlimited PTO
Competitive base salary with an annual bonus
Health, Dental, Vision, & Flexible Spending Account
401K & pre-tax commuter benefits
Short- and long-term disability & life
Hybrid schedule
