About School of Motion

At School of Motion we’re trying to reinvent the way students learn online by combining the best parts of a traditional brick-and-mortar school with technology that allows our students to receive the elite Motion Design training from anywhere in the world. Our mission is to break down the barriers to learning, mastering, and working in Motion Design. We currently have ten comprehensive courses, over 5,000 Alumni, dozens of Teaching Assistants, and a small team of full-time staff working diligently to keep everything running! And this is only the beginning…

Our Core Values:

Our core values embody our team dynamic and our voice. We are rebellious, helpful, effective, playful, and curious. If you would like to work with us, you should be all of these things too:

  • Rebellious
    • We don’t like to do things just because they’ve always been done that way. Be skeptical of the status quo and constantly improve.
  • Helpful
    • There is no such thing as “not my job”. Help out in any way you can, and don’t hesitate to reach out for help.
  • Effective
    • We do things fast and smart. We automate if it makes sense. We skip the meeting if its not immediately beneficial to the mission.
  • Playful
    • No Bad Vibes. Don’t take yourself too seriously, it’s only Animation.
  • Curious
    • Have interests, pursue them ruthlessly. Share your weirdness.

Some important information…

While School of Motion does not discriminate on the basis of citizenship or national origin, we may only employ United States citizens and people who are authorized to work in the United States. As long as you meet that criteria, you can work from wherever that is comfortable for you! We’re a fully remote team that primarily operates on Eastern Standard Time, and if you are local to Sarasota, Providence, or Los Angeles then you can come work with us in person.

Salary Range

Salary starting at $50,000 and may be higher depending on your experience and fit for the role.

We have some great benefits!

  • We cover 100% of your health insurance and a portion for your spouse and children
  • We have an extremely flexible time off policy. Work wherever you want with an internet connection.
  • Access to a 401K plan after one year of employment
  • Profit based bonus program
  • Saying that we have a very casual work environment is an understatement, just be you.
  • An exceptional giphy game.

The position does require domestic travel at least twice per year when we all get together for company retreats and industry conferences (they are fun!).
