With over 30 television series airing on 5 networks (ESPN, Spike, DIY, Versus, Outdoor Channel) and growing, Orion is seeking an artist who can work on a wide variety of graphics across different genres and design platforms, and who can deliver on time and on budget while bringing fresh ideas and creativity to the table. Multitasking and a good attitude under pressure are musts. Qualified candidates will be well versed in both 2D motion graphics/compositing (using AfterEffects, FinalCut Pro, etc) and 3D design and animation (Maya preferred), and should be able to integrate audio (music, narration, sound fx, etc) into their animations to create a finished piece. Should be experienced in designing for HD. Knowledge of outdoor adventure sports is a plus. This is a full time position in our Denver, Colorado headquarters and includes full benefits and salary.
