Want to work with the IGN video team in our San Francisco offices as a Motion Graphics Producer? Here's what you'll need if you want to join our team:

  • A demonstrable reel of significantly appropriate work. If you don't have a variety of examples, start making them.
  • A reel of work. (This should be the first thing you show us.)
  • Experience scoping, producing, and executing motion graphics. This is not an entry-level position. If you haven’t had experience working in a role at a company like this, you at least need the real examples of relevant work.  
  • Live in California or near San Francisco, ideally. Will consider extra awesome candidates out of state.
  • You can create works like seen in the following video 




You should also be competent in designing and animating in 2D and 3D. You’ll also need to be able to create original designs to support your animated works.

What does that mean exactly?

  • Create awesome motion graphics to support IGN shows, standalone videos, sizzle reels and more -- all while collaborating with other departments (such as editorial, sales, etc.).


What will get you in the door?

  • Minimum 2-4 years of motion graphics/post-production experience
  • Significant experience with Adobe After Effects, Photoshop, Cinema 4D, Maya, 3D Studio Max and other motion graphics software
  • Avid, Final Cut, Adobe Premiere, or other NLE experience
  • Ability to work well with others in a collaborative, team environment
  • A positive, problem-solving attitude
  • Passion for IGN and/or video games

It would be extra awesome if you had…

  • Bachelor’s Degree in related field
  • Strong understanding of emerging design techniques, plug-ins, etc.
  • Experience managing video asset archives and servers
  • Have done graphics/post-production at a TV or game-centric company

Here’s the good stuff about us…
