What's the opportunity? 🤔

The Intercom Creative Studio is looking for an experienced Senior Motion Designer who can push the brand forward through the execution of motion design and editing work to produce a variety of explainer videos, product animations, customer stories, campaign work, interactive elements, and more. Reporting directly to the Sr. Director of Creative Studio, you'll work alongside Designers, Producers, Writers, as well as Product Marketers to build the foundation and execution of how our product and brand come to life through motion.  

This motion focused role sits within the Creative Studio, our San Francisco-based team which works on projects that span digital, print, environmental, physical goods, and everything in between. We believe our best work is ahead of us (through collaboration with you!).

The team has spent the last couple years building our product animation library, and now we’re ready to build a more systematic foundation to expand on.

Our small but growing in-house team is home to a diverse group of creatives with a broad range of experience, backgrounds and talents. We’re constantly looking for ways to make our day-to-day work feel fresh and meaningful, and we deeply value the health and wellness of each member of the team.

What will I be doing? 🚀

  • Produce high detail product animations using After Effects and Lottie.
  • Create visually compelling, thoughtful, on-brand videos to be used in various channels and applications. 
  • Bring concepts to hifi through detail oriented design, storyboarding, and animation, while utilizing the brand system and gathering feedback in collaboration with Designers, Writers, Product, or Product Marketers. 
  • Maintain, challenge, and iterate on our motion principals, guidelines and processes. 
  • Push for innovative brand-motion work that delights our customers and meets company objectives. 
  • Consistently QA existing and past examples of motion. 
  • Push the brand forward with fresh ideas across immersive experiences. 
  • Look for and document changes in standards, trends, and high quality examples of world-class brand motion work.

What skills do I need? 📖

  • 4-8 years of motion/video/editing experience
  • Ability to confidently scope and produce product animations/video from concept to pixel-perfect execution
  • Strong conceptual design skills - someone who is also very proficient with motion design, typography, color theory, illustration, photography, and layout
  • Passion for modern branding 
  • Core graphic design abilities include the ability to craft a story as well as have the production level know-how to cut and deliver assets.
  • Detail-oriented, strategic and systems-level thinking.

A "recently separated veteran" means any veteran during the three-year period beginning on the date of such veteran's discharge or release from active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval, or air service.

An "active duty wartime or campaign badge veteran" means a veteran who served on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service during a war, or in a campaign or expedition for which a campaign badge has been authorized under the laws administered by the Department of Defense.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Form CC-305
Page 1 of 1
OMB Control Number 1250-0005
Expires 04/30/2026

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor. The law requires us to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We have a goal of having at least 7% of our workers as people with disabilities. The law says we must measure our progress towards this goal. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had one. People can become disabled, so we need to ask this question at least every five years.

Completing this form is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer is confidential. No one who makes hiring decisions will see it. Your decision to complete the form and your answer will not harm you in any way. If you want to learn more about the law or this form, visit the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) website at www.dol.gov/ofccp.
