Stake is looking for a Motion Editor to join our team at our HQ in Sydney. Stake is more than a brokerage, we’re one global brand that stands for progress. This is true for our customers but also for our team members.

We are growing quickly and have expanded outside of Australia to New Zealand, United Kingdom and Brazil.

Stake is a digital brokerage offering seamless access to invest in shares. It is an exciting working environment where everyone is challenged to deliver high-quality execution. It’s collaborative and high energy. It’s a supportive environment where people are encouraged to take ownership and try things, even if they may fail. Our internal mantra is ‘never settle’ and we all share an ambition to do whatever it takes to grow this business forward. This is your opportunity to join a global brand rocketing forward and a team hungry to shake up a category.

About this role

As a Stake motion designer you will work with the Stake Create team - a mix of designers, writers, motion editors and software developers to develop comms that will live across the Stake products and marketing communications.

We’re in an exciting time of growth and your role will develop over time, however core parts of the job will include:

  • Working on advertising campaigns across online video, TV and digital out-of-home media. You will also contribute to developing EDMs, social assets (Facebook, Instagram, Reddit) and blogs for marketing campaigns. You will create stand out work that challenges the status quo and puts us on the map.
  • Contributing to our app and desktop platform, working with the development team to create motion elements for the UI and app experiences
  • Taking briefs from the Stake Marketing team globally, developing initial concepts and helping craft and deliver the execution
  • Having an excellent understanding of standout creative work and the ability to develop and share ideas effectively
  • Help drive the creative agenda in the company - both in defining who we are and how we show up in the world - to how we push innovation from a comms perspective

A bit about you

  • You have a background in motion design and editing and experience with:
    • Editing and animating advertising campaigns, long and short form video content, web and EDM campaigns
    • Working within existing brand design systems and guidelines (and helping build on them)
    • Taking a brief and managing through with the team until completion
    • Skilled in Adobe After Effects & Premiere Pro, Illustrator and Photoshop (ideally cinema 4D as well)
  • You love working with a dynamic team that is currently building an exciting and compelling brand
  • You are passionate and want to be part of taking an Aussie start-up global
  • You always take initiatives and find ways to improve

There are plenty of opportunities to get behind the camera and shoot/direct content, so let us know if you can do this too.

At Stake, we value hustle over honours degrees, so we’re more interested in you than your resume. If you believe this is a role you want to jump into head first and be part of our mission, please apply and let us know why in your cover letter!

Our benefits

  • An Employee Stock Ownership Plan that reflects Stake’s high performance culture and recognises that employees aren’t only contributors to the business but are owners of Stake’s success
  • An annual discretionary performance bonus (cash or options)
  • Free Stake Black membership and FX rebates each time you fund your Stake account
  • More to come as we grow!
