Position: Associate Video Editor
Location: New York City Seeking: We are looking for a full-time Associate Video Editor to join our growing video team. As our ideal candidate, you have at least two years of relevant experience and a sixth sense for what kinds of video will perform well on social media. You feel comfortable creating videos quickly and efficiently from start to end - from sourcing online content (YouTube, Instagram, Facebook) to using After Effects to add text and graphics. You are equally excited to create "signature Dodo" videos as you are to push the envelope with creative new ideas.
Please send your resume, reel, 1 link to an animal video that blew your mind and 1 link to a video that makes you feel all the feels to firstname.lastname@example.org.
----- About Us: The Dodo is an NYC-based digital media start-up committed to creating entertaining, meaningful animal-related stories – we cover everything from viral videos and animal behavior to rescue stories and advocacy efforts. Our goal at The Dodo is to deliver the most emotionally and visually compelling, sharable animal stories and videos to the biggest number of readers possible to help make caring about animals a viral cause. We are looking for passionate, flexible people who are interested in growing a start-up that we hope will make the world a better place for animals. The Dodo is backed by Discovery Communications, venture capital firm Lerer Hippeau Ventures, whose principals created The Huffington Post and backed BuzzFeed, and other investors.
We offer competitive pay, health insurance, and equity in a growth-stage company. Office culture and work-life balance are very important to us, and bringing your dog to work is encouraged. Our team is made up of enthusiastic, ambitious people who like to have fun at work. Help us help animals by joining Team Dodo.
