As the SG Interactive team expands, our spectrum of services does as well. We are creating a non-stoppable video creating machine and are looking for creative fuel to help it run. If you’re a creative that enjoys being in a high paced environment, creating unique videos for brands all across the globe, then this probably is the position for you.
What the heck is an Animator?
Animators have the responsibility of giving video scripts the breath of life through stunning motion graphics and transitions. You will focus on creating characters, scenery, assets, and transitions to bring our clients ideas to life. You will turn storyboards to life with your exceptional artistic abilities.
What kind of projects would I be working on?
You will be working on a wide range of video projects for clients in all industries. We offer 2D and whiteboard videos currently, but are working to expand our offerings.
What is the office culture like?
Each SG Interactive office has its own fun and unique culture, developed by the diverse teams of designers and managers that work there. At the root of each office environment lies the foundational culture that was grown at our headquarters in San Diego.
Here in Manila, a city full of heart, we reflect that description in our office environment. Covering Asia hours and then some, the Asia office culture mirrors the collaborative foundations from our San Diego HQ to bring 24-hour coverage to SG Interactive. This has grown an environment of next level collaboration—a unique mix between independent space, colleagues within and across departments always willing to jump in and lend a hand, and an overall no-fuss can-do attitude. We strongly support each person's personal time, leading us to work hard and work well together so that when you go home, you can really go home. We enjoy all types of music, corny jokes, and a whole flurry of other interests brought about by each new person who joins the team.
Am I going to be able to grow with this company?
We offer a structured and transparent path for each member of the team. You will know where you stand at all times and your manager will highlight exactly what needs to be done in order for you to get to the place you want to be. In addition to offering growth within a given department, we also allow for inter-departmental growth if you show an aptitude in another area. And the growth doesn’t stop there, as the company itself is growing at an amazing rate, providing new and exciting opportunities for our team every day!
Okay, so… What's the catch?
The catch is that you have to bring your ‘A’ game. We expect our animators to bring positive, creative energy into the office everyday. That way we can face any challenge that gets thrown our way, knowing that we will be able to lean on each other for support. As an Animator, the team relies on you to help with the creation of character illustrations, epic scenery, and stunning animations. You are the life force that helps drive the video creating machine!
