We are looking for an animator who can help us continue the work that we do that educates patients, healthcare professionals about new treatments for life-threatening diseases.

Are you an animator with at least 4 years’ experience who shares our mission of making a positive difference in people’s lives? If so, we want to hear from you.

This is where the role of an animator at Cuttsy+Cuttsy can help.
