The Role:


  • Partner closely with designers, copywriters, marketers, motion designers and producers to execute high-quality animation projects. 
  • Bring designs and narratives to life effectively, using principles of animation and modern animation techniques.
  • Strong understanding of animation/video formats and codecs.
  • Work with and evolve the existing animation language at Atlassian to elevate the brand. 
  • Take creative direction from partners and translate to purposeful animations with motivated movements.
