About The Role:

The VFX & Motion Graphics Artist will work closely with creatives, producers, editors, and filmmakers on a wide range of video content and be the go-to for all VFX needs. This is not the job for a person who wants to focus on one particular skill because everyday you will be doing something totally different. These things include design and animation, compositing, tracking, rotoscoping, 3D and 2D and after effects.

The ideal candidate will use their visual storytelling prowess to develop creative from concept to delivery. In addition, you must be able to work and communicate well with a team and be able to handle pressure and tight deadlines. This role will allow ample creative freedom and opportunity to explore executions and grow his/her skills.


What You’ll Do:

As a VFX & Motion Graphics Artist at Honey, you will:

  • Responsible for concepting, developing and executing motion graphics and visual effects for a range of video content
  • Collaborate in concert with the art director, editor and producer 
  • Develop concepts, generating (multiple) iterations of a “look” in storyboards and style frames
  • Comfortably propose and present ideas, take direction, participate in internal brainstorms, prioritize workload, manage multiple projects efficiently and effectively, and work with key personnel in order to deliver projects on time
  • Handle elements of post-production, including animations, particle effects, motion tracking, rotoscoping, painting, color correction/grading, keying, layering of elements, screen replacements, and shot clean-ups
  • Be a creative thinker and storyteller who can solve complex motion graphics and VFX challenges
  • Stay up-to-date on creative trends, pop culture and latest VFX and animation trends and techniques


About You:

  • Reel with most up to date work
  • 4+ years of production company, agency or client-side experience in motion design and VFX
  • Expert knowledge of Adobe Creative Suite (especially After Effects and Premiere) and other motion graphics, animation and video tools
  • Strong post-production and VFX skills such as compositing, tracking, keying, rotoscoping, screen comps, etc
  • Experience with 2D and 3D design and animation
  • Thorough understanding of motion graphics, design, and typography
  • Strong conceptual skills; you’re comfortable generating great ideas in a collaborative environment and have the skills to execute your ideas to completion
  • Self-starter and constantly curious about leveling up
  • Ability to work under pressure without compromising performance or accuracy in a deadline oriented environment.
  • Strong organizational skills and attention to detail

An Insider's view of Honey

What are some social events your company does?

We have a regular company all-hands that gives everybody from different teams a chance to catch up with each other, quarterly recreational tournaments (usually ping-pong or competitive video games), board game nights, and a lot of the time just hanging out at whatever local events may be going on.

Sean

Software Engineer

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Cross-team collaboration plays a big role in ensuring deploys go smoothly. Sync ups between Engineering, Product, Design, and beyond, occur on a daily basis. Whether it’s a drop-in at someone’s desk, a Slack message to update a spec/status of a ticket, or a full on meeting--the communication never stops, to ensure that we’re all on the same page.

Yvonne

QA Engineer

What are some things you learned at the company?

Being flexible and stepping out of my comfort zone. At Honey, several times I’m given the opportunities I’ve never had prior to working here. For example, I’ve had to schedule, plan and drive meetings. I’ve also had to get used to constantly presenting my work to my peers. It’s really great because it’s taught me how to be a better communicator.

Xola

Software Engineer

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

We have a completely open culture at the company, from seating to communication. Every Friday we do a company wide stand-up where we are as transparent as possible. The only way we can hit our objectives is if everybody is operating with the same information.

Glen

COO

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I started at Honey when there were only 10 people in the company and today we have over 100 employees. In the past 2 years we’ve seen tremendous growth both internally and externally which has allowed me the opportunity to build out a team underneath me, work across departments and provide input for the product and company’s future.
