Attention to detail is one of our core values! This is your chance to stand out 🙂

To love this role, here’s the type of person you are:

  • You’re incredibly positive and enjoy making another person’s day.
  • You’re an excellent communicator who makes sure nothing slips through the cracks.
  • You’re a self-starter who loves taking initiative and seeing things through to completion.
  • You have the curiosity and desire to learn and grow your skills.
  • You take pride in the quality and craftsmanship of your work rather than just doing it to get it done.

Common responsibilities include (but are not limited to):

  • Assemble and edit raw footage into a finished tutorial.
  • Gather additional assets for the video, such as audio and visual effects.
  • Create graphics, such as YouTube thumbnails, transitional elements, text and subtitles, animations, or some motion graphics.
  • Consult with the video content team to clarify requirements, receive feedback, and make adjustments throughout the entire post-production process.
  • Working from a task list in Asana and keeping ahead of schedule with minimal oversight.
  • Export finished video for distribution to various platforms like YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, etc.
  • Keeping up with YouTube trends and making suggestions.
  • Optimizing thumbnails for better CTR (click through rate).

Requirements

  • Video Editing: Editing experience in Camtasia, Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere Pro or DaVinci Resolve. Ability to edit 8-10 videos a month to start with.
  • WordPress.org Experience: You’ll be editing WordPress tutorials, so knowing your way around WordPress will be helpful while editing the raw footage.
  • Creativity: video editors are excellent storytellers who thoroughly understand a video’s creative concept and work with raw footage and audio to create a product that fulfills this vision
  • Time management: the post-production phase is time-consuming even for short videos, and on top of that, you may have to make several revisions. You’re able to juggle multiple tasks and projects and prioritize your work effectively to meet all deadlines.
  • Image Editing: You can efficiently take screenshots; resize and crop images; add text, borders, or other elements; compress images; and upload and format them in WordPress so that they are clear, useful, and look good.
  • YouTube Optimization: stay up to date with the latest YouTube trends to improve thumbnails and video performance.
  • Previous freelance or remote work experience.
  • Personal Computer with Internet Access
  • Availability to participate in audio/video meetings between the hours 9 am – 5 pm ET
