The client is looking for an experienced Associate Video Producer/Editor to create short-form video content for tech-focused websites, social channels and other distribution points. You'll be part of our client's technology communications Editorial Team, which manages a bundle of digital content channels that collectively reach nearly 18 million people. This is a team of storytellers - a mix of trained journalists, video producers, and marketers. All of the content is tied to varying business objectives, but is mainly centered on elevating the client's tech innovations, brand awareness, and recruitment.
The ideal candidate should have experience producing video content that showcases or explains complex material. You should be able to work effectively in a highly cross-functional environment to bring the client's tech innovation stories to life on owned content channels, often under tight deadlines. You'll edit (and, eventually, shoot) video content for a primary audience of AI researchers, engineers, and tech reporters. You'll partner closely with the video producers, directors, and project managers in the client's Creative Department to build video projects that are beyond the scope of a single producer/editor. You'll collaborate with other key internal partners and stakeholders, including the client's broader Tech Communications Team, which guides messaging strategy; AI researchers and engineers, as well as legal and privacy leaders.
You'll shoot, edit, and produce short-form (30-second to four-minute) videos featuring AI researchers and engineers and their work. You must have strong editorial judgement; script writing, editing, and project management abilities; and a knack for translating and presenting complex technical concepts. You must build strong internal relationships with multiple stakeholders to tell compelling stories about the client's work.
You must be able to work well in a fluid environment with multiple long-term and short-term editorial projects, often simultaneously.
