You are a whiz at color correction, creative concepting, and keeping track of multiple projects at once.

At Pixel Bakery, we're on the cutting edge of video editing and motion design, so we expect and would appreciate someone who is highly experimental and always willing to learn new things.

benefits

Vacation: 80 hours paid time off your first year

Sick Leave: 40 hours paid per year

Flex-ish schedule: As long as the majority of your hours take place between 9-5 on Mon-Fri, you should be all set.

Hybrid-ish work environment: The majority of your week will be spent in the office or on set, but if there are some days where that's just not going to happen, that's chill.

Overall, we treat you like a human. But, a human we want to be able to talk to and collaborate with on a consistent basis.

Gym Membership: PB covers half of your gym membership each month. Gotta keep that body as healthy as that brain, ya know? 'Gym' is subjective and can also be anything from yoga classes to your Peloton membership.
