Product Video Animator

Our Video Production team is looking for a talented, efficient video animator/editor/motion graphics designer to work with the Vimeo Product team to create amazing graphics-based videos that engage and inform our community on our site, our newsletters, and more. Oh, and you should also be a total team player and comfortable creating for a broad audience of casual uploaders, professional filmmakers, businesses, and beyond.

If you’re all of these things (NBD, right?), AND you’re comfortable working on tight timelines to produce high-quality videos —let’s do this thing.

In this role, you will:

  • Work closely and collaboratively with product and creative design teams to make amazing graphics-based videos for our websites, newsletters, and social media.

  • Find new opportunities and means of incorporating videos into the Vimeo user experience.
  • Continually work to optimize videos in response to key performance metrics captured by the data team.

If you’re applying, you should:

  • Have 3+ years of experience making short-form videos and creating motion graphics on behalf of a brand or product.
  • Have a degree in film/video, media, design or another relevant field.
  • Be a pro at Adobe After Effects and Premiere Pro and be familiar with Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, Invision, and Sketch.
  • Have experience with UX design, creating GIFs, and compressing videos for web display.
  • Be incredibly detail-oriented, informed on video standards and trends, dead-set on perfection, and able to effectively communicate feedback.

Bonus points:

  • You’ve worked for a tech/internet/SaaS company with a lot of brand personality and a complex product.
  • You have a background in UX/product design and/or experience working between Sketch/Invision and Adobe Illustrator/After Effects.
  • You’re a diehard Vimeo fan and longtime uploader.

To apply, please send us:

  • A brief, non-generic cover letter
  • An impressive resume
  • A link to your video reel and/or portfolio

Vimeo loves to break it down on the dance floor so it's tradition to make sure that happens! Events cater to a variety of interests and lets you try something new with your Vimeo family. From karaoke to channel your inner Celine, scavenger hunts for the adrenaline rush, to paint nights that let your creative genius shine - we do it all with loveo!

Tenniel

HR Manager

What projects are you most excited about?

We just moved our main serving stack to a cloud environment, so now we get to modernize our infrastructure to take advantage of that: we get to take everything apart and put it back together in a more automated, reliable, and sustainable way.

Mike

Lead Site Reliability Engineer

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

We believe the best ideas come from anywhere. Our biggest product launches have come from Vimeo Jams (hackathons), Creator Lab experiments, contributing to open source protocols, engaging our community, and crowdsourcing across the company. Innovation isn’t a buzz word to us – it's how we push the boundaries of storytelling and empower creators.

Anjali

CEO

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

At Vimeo, collaboration takes many shapes and forms. It could be a simple direct message, it could be pulling up a chair and code-pairing, or it could be a team meeting. The key is being able to easily and efficiently collaborate from department to department. Vimeo provides all the tools necessary to make that happen.
