How do you apply for the Animator role?
There are 2 ways of applying. You can choose either one that you're comfortable with 🙂
Option 1: Directly Email Our Recruiters for an Interview
When you apply, tell us what you notice as an animator about What Makes This Animation Successful?
Option 2: Fill up the Application Form and We'll Reach Out To Selected Candidates
Here are the FAQ's:
1. Can I apply if I am under 18?
Yes, you can. Many of our animators are in fact under 18. We find that self-taught, and young animators tend to know our audience best. And are much more talented when it comes to YouTube content.
2. Is this a part time or full time position?
You are working as a freelancer or independent contractor meaning you are running your own company. For Psych2go, we pay by the projects. Rates are determined based on the quality of your work and the experiences you previously had.
3. Are there incentives for working for psych2Go?
Well, you are working from home which is already something not a lot of jobs can offer, especially after covid is over. You get to work within your own schedule.
Your pay is based on a flat rate + a bonus on the performance of your videos and feedbacks you get such as positive comments left on your videos about how much they love your artwork. You also get lots of projects from us over other animators on our team if your work is consistently good.
If you want to work full time, it's highly possible to get a full time paid salary, but that's up to you. The more projects you take on, the more pay you get.
4. When can I start and can I quit anytime?
Yes! Once you passed the first few initial tests, you will be given a full project. And you can quit anytime or renegotiate your rate after a certain period with us.
