Live Video Producer - Twitch & Podcast
Job Description Overview:
Are you a seasoned streamer or videographer who is passionate about PC gaming and hardware? ASUS is looking for an exceptional Live Video Producer to join our content marketing team. This person will create and host weekly gaming and podcast-style streams that cover ROG and ASUS gaming products, and demonstrate the experiences they enable firsthand. Applicants must be comfortable performing on camera and capable of incorporating outside direction into their work.
Pro gaming credentials are not required, but above-average skill in both competitive and single-player games is an asset. You need to be at least proficient and entertaining enough while gaming to maintain an audience’s attention over the course of multiple hours. Exceptional candidates will have demonstrable experience creating both competitive and “Let’s Play”-style content in a live setting, perhaps through their own Twitch or YouTube channel.
Successful applicants will produce and host live video streams on platforms like Twitch and YouTube Live. They will collaborate with writers, video producers, and technical experts from the content team and other groups to plan their activities, messaging, and discussion for individual episodes. This position also involves constructively and positively engaging with the audience, and evaluating the performance of episodes and initiatives using analytical tools.
Footage from live streams will be used in additional marketing materials, including experiential product videos hosted on our YouTube channels, and additional content for social media. Successful candidates will work with the content team and other stakeholders to ensure live video meets the requirements of other projects.
Applicants should be willing to work and stream from our office in Fremont, CA. This position may also involve occasional travel to industry and gaming events, plus our Taipei headquarters.
