Creative Motion Designer & Editor

Summary

We are looking for a passionate, experienced Motion Designer and Editor able to translate creative briefs or storyboards into thoughtfully-crafted, social-first video assets. This person will be responsible for the day to day production and execution of all moving content with a focus on finding innovative and engaging ways to drive new customer growth for Popsa. In this role you will be expected to create a wide range of moving content and have strong design foundations in typography, layout and colour and love collaborating with designers, copywriters and marketers.

Who we are

Joining Popsa now is pretty exciting. According to Deloitte, we’re one of the UK’s fastest-growing startups for the last two years running and the FT has recently announced our position in the top 5 fastest growing Tech companies in Europe. We have a rapidly growing global customer base, and the backing of some of the best investors in the world. Our native iOS and Android apps are available in 12 languages – attracting more than 3 million users to date – and we ship to 50 countries around the world. Phew.

So why is Popsa so hot right now? The reality is, people have never taken more photos than we do today. Our phones are literally crammed with memories. But although we’re good at capturing moments – we’re not as good at doing anything with them. They’ll often sit forgotten on our devices or in the cloud.

And then Popsa came along. We’ve built an award-winning app that’s made printing your memories so easy and accessible, anyone can do it. No more barriers. No more time-wasting. In fact, everything we do as a business is designed with this ethos. We help people turn their best moments into something beautiful and lasting, in no time at all.

Today we’re best known for photobooks, but our vision of the future goes far beyond print. We’re building a platform to help people to curate their experiences in lots of exciting ways. We want to become THE place where people come to capture their life stories. To celebrate their most important people and relationships. To create lasting meaning from their experiences.
