About the job

At Google, we follow a simple but vital premise: "Focus on the user and all else will follow." Google's Motion Designers collaborate with cross-functional partners to create desirable and relevant product experiences that consistently elevate the Google brand. They help people make sense of their world by choreographing experiences that feel fluid, natural, and informative.

Google User Experience (UX) is made up of multi-disciplinary teams of UX Designers, Researchers, Writers, Content Strategists, Program Managers, and Engineers: we care deeply about the people who use our products. The UX team plays an integral part in gathering insights about the attitudes, emotions, and behaviors of people who use our products to inspire and inform design. We collaborate closely with each other and with engineering and product management to create industry-leading products that deliver value for the people who use them, and for Google's businesses.

As a Motion Designer, you'll apply your passion for animation to simplify complex interactions and solve challenging design problems. You'll help define and implement Google's motion design language and you'll think critically about how motion reinforces Google's UX brand, enhances interactivity, and delights our users.

User experience is at the forefront of how we create intuitive, innovative, and beautiful products that people love. We strive to learn and understand our users' needs, behaviors, and emotions to gather insights that inform product strategy and design. Our UX teams include designers, researchers, content strategists, and engineers who are passionate about quality, usability, and simplicity. We work on collaborative teams to solve complex challenges and craft experiences that highlight our products' unique capabilities and personalities. Our work touches billions while exemplifying a key principle that is core to Google's philosophy: "Focus on the user and all else will follow."
