Mid-level Digital Designer



London, UK
Posted on Monday, January 15, 2024

TL;DR: 👋 we're looking for a mid-level Digital Designer. You'll design templates that are used by some of the world's largest companies within our AI-powered video creation platform. If you are excited about using storytelling, graphic design, motion, VFX, and UI design principles to invent the future formats of video, this one's for you!

Who are we?

We are on a mission to make video easy for anyone …

Synthesia is the world’s #1 AI video generation platform. Well, it’s actually a video production studio — in a browser. As in, no cameras or film crews at all. You simply choose an avatar, enter your script in one of 120 languages, and your video is ready in minutes. In Synthesia, you can build personalised on-the-fly videos, give your chatbot a human face or run 24/7 weather channels in different languages, to name just a few of the possibilities 🎬.

We believe the future of media is synthetic, and we are on a mission to turn cameras into code and make everyone a creator.

Not sure what we’re talking about? Check out our brand video that explains what we’re doing at Synthesia in a way that anyone can *kind of * understand what this AI video stuff is all about.

And yet we are just laying the groundwork for a whole new kind of media here. Imagine joining Uber, Airbnb or Stripe when these companies were just getting started.

That's how early we are – but enough about us now. You can watch the video below or keep reading to understand more about this role & then apply!

Our Customer Services Content Creation Team is at the heart of our business and responsible for the creation of a brand-new lineup of products that will empower some of the world's largest companies to create video entirely in their browser.
