Video and Motion Graphics Internship

Start Date: Hiring Immediately

Summary/Objective

The Digitability Video and Motion Graphics Internship is a unique opportunity designed to give you a chance to work hands-on, with a dedicated and mission-driven organization. We’re looking for interns to join us in delivering a service that will improve the lives of people with disabilities.

What You'll Learn

You will get to work side-by-side with the CEO/Founder, marketing and sales teams to create video assets that will be used on our site and award-winning curriculum.

Who's a Good Fit for the Internship

Are you a college creative who is looking to flex your design muscles? Are you interested in working on mission-driven projects in trendy co-working spaces? Are you detail oriented with highly-efficient organizational skills? If so, we want to work with you!
