What We’re Seeking
We’re on the hunt for a motion graphics animator (2D and 3D)/video creator & editor.. Essentially, someone who’s native in creating content for digital & social media and who does it REALLY well. You are used to working remotely and on multiple projects at the same time. You are able to look at each new client and project with fresh new eyes, and you preferably have experience in working with various brands in different industries.
16K Agency is a digital creative agency originally based in Melbourne, Stockholm, and soon London. We’re largely embedded in the fast-paced and action-packed world of F1 racing, but we also have a range of clients in other industries and fields.
We pride ourselves on telling great stories over social media. We do this by hiring hungry and highly skilled people who crave to live a life worth telling your grandchildren about. Even if you are not planning for kids, but you’re an epic digital content creator then keep reading!
Ideally, you’re based in London, or in Europe. Given the current situation, remote work is expected no matter where you live so it is important that you have experience in driving projects forward and independently.
Depending on your location, exact skill set, and our future work requirements, there is a possibility to travel with our team in F1 during the next season.

You can work fast, really fast. You’ve got slick video skills and your still photography is on point. You can edit things so well even Quentin Tarantino gets goosebumps. Your attention to detail needs to be one of your strongest points.
We want this to be the best thing you’ve ever worked on and we want someone who’s got the serious creative skills, work ethic and dedication to deliver.
Producing motion graphics and other videos to accompany all types of marketing collateral, from educational content and social media assets to longer-form reports and advertisements.
