  • Collaborate with team members, editorial leads, writers, and illustrators on your stories  
  • Stay engaged on social media networks and video distribution platforms  
  • Proactively experiment with different versions of an edit, exploring multiple directions

Must-Haves:  

  • A passion for technology, gaming, science, and future tech  
  • Three years experience producing video  
  • Demonstrated ability in field and studio production 
  • A handle on the basics of creating high-quality video, and the skills to make footage look good even if you’re using a phone to shoot  
  • A strong interest in mobile storytelling tools, including (but not limited to) Instagram, Facebook Live, Snapchat, and the vertical "stories" format 
  • A strong sense of visual storytelling
