Upcoming progressive political publishing startup is seeking a video editor. Planning a launch in early November. Looking for someone who has a grasp of both national and local politics and can create content using an ethically partisan progressive voice. Much of our material will be similar to the Now This model, for just one quick, simple comparison. This editor will sometimes have to clean up/improve video submitted from our regional staff, either vlogs or on-location type stuff.
Social media, on-air ability, cinematography, sound and especially graphic design skills are big bonuses. Austin is the preferred location but will consider ideal candidates anywhere in the United States. Either way, most of the work will be done from your home office or preferred workspace. Applicant needs to be a self-starter who communicates well via phone, text, email, video chat and chat. This is a fantastic opportunity to get in on the ground floor of an exciting startup at the perfect time for this concept. The CEO/Founder's previous startup was acquired and became a Time Inc. brand along SI, Time, People and EW, so this company has massive upside. You would be the first hire within our video department, so the opportunity would be there to grow with and potentially lead this aspect of our business.
