The New York Post video team is seeking a video editor to help pitch and create compelling, shareable videos about gossip, celebrities, and fashion - subjects that are the mainstay of Page Six, the nation’s most iconic gossip column. 

You must edit fast and with flourish. Expertise with key products in Adobe Creative Suite (Premiere, Photoshop, After Effects.) And you must be able to work autonomously in such a fast-paced environment.    

You should love celebrity journalism and possess deep knowledge about the latest celebrity gossip, feuds, scandals and hookups. You should live and breathe celebrity lifestyle, fashion and social media savvy, with your fingers on the pulse. 

You are savvy about social video on all platforms and have a knowledge of what videos perform well on Instagram, Youtube, Facebook and Twitter.

Like us, you believe news doesn’t have to be boring and you appreciates the odd and unconventional stories as well as important ones.  

Along with editing digitally-native short form video, you will help generate our content, pitching video ideas daily and contributing to the team brainstorming. Ability to write a script a plus. 

Can-do attitude is key: someone who believes news doesn’t have to be boring and who appreciates the odd and unconventional stories as well as important ones. 

We seek a candidate who is excited about new types of multimedia storytelling and has a track record of creating digital video. Must be aware of latest formats and trends in digital video as a distinct form of content versus television. 

This is an opportunity to work with an iconic media brand as it experiences exponential digital growth. New York Post and Page Six videos have received more than a billion views in the past few years.
  
QUALIFICATIONS:

  • 3-5 years experience editing short form celebrity videos for digital outlets

  • Open to working evenings and weekends, on rare cases if required

NEEDS:

  • Resume, link to editing reel and cover letter. Include your point of view about what makes a video shareable.
