We want to do this through fantastic videos created through a collaborative process where a super talented editor can take the vision and make it into a reality!
WHO ARE YOU?
You get people. You understand what makes them tick, and you know how to make them look good. Well, let’s be honest, you know how to make people look even better than they actually are. ;-)
Ideally, you would love human psychology, and are curious about marketing, but you definitely understand what makes people look charismatic, warm, funny, and intelligent and are able to piece together the right clips to capture that.
Ideally, we’d like to bring someone on for a long term, part-time position. We work with editors from all corners of the globe, and we need an organized and creative team leader to manage projects and make sure that all of our videos are consistent and in line with our overall branding and objectives.
THIS JOB IS FOR YOU IF:
EXPERIENCE - You have at least 3 years working in video editing and ideally went to school for it! :)
DETAIL ORIENTED - You are so detail oriented that you may be a little obsessive compulsive! And that’s not a bad thing for this job! Accurate is your middle name.
FAST & TIME EFFICIENT - When it comes to getting things done quickly, you're on it - you're incredibly time efficient (without sacrificing quality) and love checking things off your to do list. You're great at looking at large tasks and breaking them up into small, manageable milestones.
PROBLEM-SOLVER - You jump head first into solving problems, even if you don't 100% understand them. You see new challenges and skills as a mountain to be conquered, not as a roadblock. You think ANY problem is solvable, as long as you're the one doing the solving.
GREAT COMMUNICATOR - You're a crystal-clear communicator who can communicate kindly but assertively. You say what needs to be said directly, but you're very pleasant to work with
GREAT PEOPLE SKILLS - You have a strong sense of how people work and you know how to be super diplomatic. You know how to give honest feedback while building a relationship.
ORGANIZED - You are extremely organized! And a disorganized Google drive? Makes your skin crawl.
A-PLAYER - You strive to be the BEST in everything that you do. Success - both personal and professional - is important to you.
SUPER RELIABLE - Friends and family describe you as: honest to a fault, hardworking, optimistic, upbeat, sincere, trustworthy, and 10,000% reliable.
FINISHER - You're extremely goal-oriented and love finishing projects. Leaving things unfinished just isn't in your DNA.
EDITING SKILLS WE’RE LOOKING FOR:
KINETIC TYPOGRAPHY - We’d love it if you have the skills for customized kinetic typography, graphics and animations.
