Animoto – Why Work For Us?


When we say that we care about our team, we walk the walk. Trust, transparency, and wellness are deeply ingrained into our company DNA.

That's why we strongly believe in a work environment that promotes creativity, encourages discussion and active problem-solving, and makes room for personal growth.

We actively seek diversity of beliefs, backgrounds, education and ways of thinking. We aim to build an inclusive culture where differences are used to inform better business decisions. 

At Animoto, we believe that video is the most powerful way to communicate what you care most deeply about -- whether that’s your catering business, your dog Fluffy, or penguin conservation in Antarctica. That’s why we spend an inordinate amount of brainpower to build products that make it easy, fun, and cost-effective for anyone to create professional videos on a computer or mobile device. At the end of the day, we’re all about helping people share their stories with the world through video.

    Interview

    Beware exploding offers! I was given an offer with a 3 day window to decide, which is completely unreasonable. When I asked for two weeks, I was grilled about my other offers, and the Animoto offer was revoked.

    Extremely unprofessional behavior. I was strongly considering taking the offer (despite being significantly below market) because I enjoyed the people and the culture, but now I feel grateful that I dodged a bullet in my career.
