We are very excited to announce today the launch of Cartoon Brew Jobs, a new resource for the animation community. If you’re an employer looking to connect with a diverse community of animation professionals, or if you’re an artist searching for your dream animation job, we’re here to help.
A job search platform has been the most requested feature on Cartoon Brew for some time now. It was important for us though to not launch a job board simply because we could, but to start it when we were confident it could provide appreciable value to both job seekers and employers. Today, with the site’s unique visitors at an all-time high and with resources at our disposal to manage the job board, we feel the timing is right.
Launching a job board at this moment in history also reflects the evolving nature of the animation industry. Not only has a fantastic amount of new talent joined the industry over the last five years, but today’s artists are more decentralized than ever, often living in far-flung locales away from the traditional industry hubs. Studio owners routinely tell me about how some of their most valued artists live in different states—and even different countries. With tens of thousands of daily readers, Cartoon Brew is uniquely positioned to connect studios and artists, regardless of where either is located.
The mission of Cartoon Brew Jobs is quality over quantity. We intend to offer a curated collection of worthwhile employment opportunities from respected companies in the following areas:
- TV production
- Film production
- Broadcast design
- Motion graphics
- Web animation
- Interactive/app design
- Teaching positions
All job postings will be reviewed by our job board manager to ensure that the work offers are appropriate for the board. We also won’t accept job listings for unpaid positions; even internships must be paid positions.
Over the coming months, we will continue to refine Cartoon Brew Jobs with new tools to make the board more robust and user-friendly. Share your suggestions, and we will make an effort to incorporate them.
Find out more about how the job board works at this page. If you’re ready to give it a spin, we are currently offering a limited number of free trials to qualifying companies. If you’d like to try out the job board, send a request with your company’s name via this form.
Stay tuned to the job board. The board is available through the top navigation bar, and we will offer regular editorial posts to keep you informed of new opportunities.
