TodayTix provides insider access to last-minute theater tickets in the US and London. We launched in December 2013 in NYC, and have quickly grown to a team of 50 full-time employees. After initial seed capital from top executives in the entertainment and tech industries, we've completed two rounds of financing and are in full-on expansion mode. TodayTix is currently available in 8 cities in the US and London, with many new markets launching in the coming year.


We're seeking highly motivated team members to join us in our mission to broaden access to theater and expand theatergoing audiences worldwide.




TodayTix is looking for an experienced freelance motion designer who creates cutting edge motion graphics and animations for both broadcast and web delivery.  You will need speed and skill, a natural flair for narrative and storytelling, and an obsessive attention to detail.
