The Position

Root’s Growth Marketing team is searching for a Visual/Motion Designer to help create advertising content for a variety of performance marketing channels.  A strong background in branded video production/editing, motion design, and/or animation is highly desired, as this will most likely make up the bulk of your focus.  Candidates who may not directly have video experience, but have a strong sense of design, style, and product storytelling, are also encouraged to apply.

  • Brainstorm and design digital advertising concepts for Root’s growing line of insurance products. You’ll be tasked with producing a variety of media, including live action video, animation, statics/HTML5, and beyond. 
  • Design and overlay graphical/textual elements on live action footage.
  • Understand Root’s current customer base and develop ideas on how to reach new customer segments based on consumer research and data.   
  • Partner with Root’s internal marketing and creative teams to achieve brand and performance content objectives.
  • Collaborate with external production vendors, such as pitching/reviewing storyboards, scripts, casting picks, production schedules, and video edits.
  • Evaluate channel metrics, hypothesize possible creative changes to improve performance, and apply learnings to future projects. 

What we're looking for.

  • 3+ years of motion design experience with an agency or an in-house branding/content team and familiar with the video production process.

  • Some combination of: a solid technical command of design software/Adobe Suite, an After Effects guru/typography animation whiz, and Premiere Pro enthusiast.  Bonus points if you know your way around C4D.  
  • Someone who can put themselves in the shoes of our customers as they experience our products, and use that perspective as a jumping off point for new marketing ideas.

About you.

  • You’re a great collaborator who can work both cross functionally with different Root teams (product, marketing, creative), while also being your own captain at times, capable of taking a project from concept to completion with little supervision.
  • You’re interested in the intersection of creativity, technology, data, and the consumer.
  • You have a willingness to tackle difficult design and brand challenges while keeping a cool head and the consumer in mind.  
  • You’re both a designer and a critical thinker, able to listen to and process constructive criticism, always pushing yourself to become better at your craft. 
  • You’re never content with mediocre work. You strive for a higher level of quality. 
  • You have fun with what you do.
