Kickstart Entertainment is a growing animation and production studio with locations in Vancouver, Los Angeles, and Hong Kong.  We believe in the power of collaboration!  It shows in the way we work and the fun environment we create where innovation and creativity thrive.
Our team is built of talented people with diverse skill-sets, so no two Teamies (what we call Kickstart employees) are the same! Together, we handpick a team for each project, based on experience, enthusiasm, alignment to our core values and the individual goals of our team members. Our approach allows individuals to experience variety in their workload and develop more than one skill set.
Our studio is located in the heart of Strathcona in Vancouver.  During these difficult times of living in a pandemic, our interview process will be conducted via Google Meets and we have enabled most of our Teamies to work from home as we navigate what a Hybrid Studio will look like at Kickstart.  As we transition to what Hybrid will look like at Kickstart, we are starting to give to certain roles the opportunity to work from the studio, we are happy to consider working from home as an option into the future for many positions. We are excited to create an experience that keeps everyone connected regardless of if you are working from home or in the studio! 
We are looking for an energetic team player who can positively contribute to our environment by supporting the Production Manager.  By working closely with the Line Producer, Production Manager and Production Coordinators to facilitate daily tasks, the junior Production Coordinator will also provide support to Artists, Supervisors and Facilities staff as needed. We are currently looking for people who are interested in starting their career in Animation. This opportunity will likely start early summer.
