Motion Graphics Designer (Freelance)Paddle


We are looking for a talented motion designer that can bring life to our website and help us step up our Product Marketing game.
We recently hired our first Product Marketing Managers, and we're looking to make considerable improvements to the way we communicate and market our product. A big part of that will be how we tell a compelling story through visuals.
We need someone that can turn complicated concepts into accessible and straightforward visuals. If you’re a problem-solver with creative flair, motion design & keyframe layout skills and an interest in software & tech, this role is for you. This is a contract role on freelance basis with flexibility on working remotely or in-house.

Your team & role

You’ll be working closely with our Product Marketing Managers to storyboard concepts around our product, and our Senior Designer, crafting creative ways to tell the story around our product.

What you'll do

You'll be experienced at turning storyboards and static vector illustrations into high-resolution animated GIFs and videos and engage in creative development by suggesting concepts and crafting elegant responses to a variety of briefs. Moreover, you'll be using brand guidelines and style guides to create innovative solutions that are in line with our brand.

We'd love to hear from you if

  • You're an expert in After Effects, Adobe Media Encoder, and other motion software
  • You have strong composition, framing, detail, colour, scale, form and timing skills
  • You have experience in working in a deadline-driven and fast-paced environment
  • You have excellent interpersonal and communication skills
  • You have experience visualising software product features 

It'd be great if

  • You have illustration skills
  • You have film/video editing skills
  • You have photography skills

Why you’ll love working at Paddle

We are a diverse team of just over 100 people (quickly on our way to 180+) based near London Bridge (but moving to Shoreditch by EOY). We care deeply about enabling a great culture which is inclusive no matter your background. We celebrate our diverse group of talented employees and we pride ourselves on our transparent, collaborative, friendly and respectful culture.
We offer a full slate of benefits, including competitive salaries, stock options, pension plans, private healthcare and on-site coaching sessions. We believe in flexible working and offer all team members unlimited holidays and 3 months paid parental leaves regardless of gender. Plus we offer some not-so-standard, extra-fun benefits, which can include anything from joining office football team, taking up in-office yoga lessons or enjoying a board game night. We host regular company get-togethers and quarterly socials. We have weekly catered lunches and of course, fully stocked fridges and cold brew on tap. We value learning and will help you with your personal development where we can — from constant exposure to new challenges and annual learning stipend to regular internal and external training.

Hundreds of companies rely on our e-commerce platform to sell their software products globally, as well as our powerful analytics and marketing tools to understand and grow their businesses.
