We are seeking a talented Video Editor to join our team. This role will involve taking ownership of our video post-production process from ingestion of footage to final edit and file storage. As a key player, you will work closely with teams, including Marketing, to help us establish Uscreen as a premier video-first platform in our industry.
You will thrive in this role if you have an innovative mindset. We value a knack for seeing things that other video editors don’t find on strong attention to detail. Ideally you're excited by the prospect of getting to exercise your creative muscles while having the support of a strong, stable company and team.
🚀 What you’ll do
Use video editing software such as Adobe Premiere or Final Cut Pro to create and tell compelling stories across our channels of distribution. While this will be primarily for YouTube (including YouTube shorts!), it will also include telling video stories in other places such as Uscreen’s website, our social media profiles (Instagram, TikTok) and other channels as they come up.
Be proficient in motion graphics that enhance the final video product
Work with in-house producers to establish the desired look, feel, and pacing for videos
Use your creativity and innovation to propose new ideas and formats for edits to take our video production to the next level
Gather and transfer all forms of media into editing software, reviewing raw material to determine the best narrative
Establish a clear understanding of the storyline and purpose of the video’s creation
Improve overall video quality through the use of sound effects, music, text, graphics, or any other elements
Ensure the correct formatting and presentation for finalized video according to project specifications
Consult with production team and project producer throughout projects
🔥 Do you have what it takes?
3+ years of progressive video editing experience, preferably with a focus on YouTube
A portfolio of work demonstrating editing proficiency (Demo reel, YouTube channel, etc - just show us your work!)
Deep understanding of video pacing and what makes for a compelling edit
Open-minded about feedback and a willingness to grow and improve your work
Ability to prioritize work and manage multiple projects simultaneously, while not losing sight of details and meeting deadlines
Self-motivated and a thoughtful, yet quick problem solver
