Motion Designer

At Obvious we're looking for a Motion Designer to work on products that go out to millions of users every day. 

Full-time · Working Remotely

It’s a new morning. You grab a leisurely breakfast and coffee before sitting down to work and getting your tools in order. Your Slack workspace pings: “Ready for our daily stand-up?.” After catching up with your team, a cross-functional bunch of designers and engineers who love what they do (just like you!), it’s down to business.

You start with the first client, a unicorn startup in the FinTech space. You’re creating collaterals for their app, used by a young generation of trend-savvy, financially-growing customers. You create rough sketches to shape your concept closely with illustrators and product designers. After a nice lunch, you present concepts to the clients’ designers and product managers during a creatively-charged collaboration session.

Next, you begin work for a healthcare app used in over 6,000 facilities of all sizes in India, Ethiopia, and Bangladesh. Your work will go into a demo video that helps healthcare workers across the world use the app more efficiently and save more lives. With every step, you see your work evolve and you grow into your strengths as a motion designer at one of the leading product consultancies in India. You understand that complex technology, when simplified and made ubiquitously accessible, finds its own ways to change the world.

This is a glimpse of what it’s like to work as a Motion Designer at Obvious.
