We seek a production manager with experience coordinating the operations of a documentary-focused video production team.

The production manager will report to the executive producer and oversee the day-to-day production needs of our growing video department. This person thrives in a fast-paced, highly collaborative work environment and has strong organizational skills and technical expertise in video production and post-production equipment and workflows. Most of all, this person loves working closely with a creative team and gets a thrill from organizing the often-chaotic production process.

  • Train staff in production and post-production best practices



  • At least 3 years of professional experience in journalistic/documentary video production
  • At least 1 year of experience in a production management role, working with in-house teams and 3rd party houses, ideally including short-form web video formats
  • Strong understanding of industry-standard technology including camera (Canon) and lighting equipment, software (Adobe Premiere Pro, After Effects, Dropbox, etc.), post-production workflow, project management tools (Basecamp, Google Docs), and streaming video platforms (YouTube, Brightcove, Vimeo, Facebook)
  • The ability to manage multiple projects on tight deadlines with rigorous attention to detail and high editorial standards

Atlantic Media Values:

Force of Ideas:  At the center of Atlantic Media work are the ideas within our writing.  We believe that ideas – to the good and not – have consequence.  Our highest work is bringing rigor, insight, intellectual integrity, to that ultimate purpose of separating the bad from the good, and giving voice to the latter.

Spirit of Generosity:  Atlantic Media seeks in its ranks those with natural disposition toward service and selfless conduct.  Atlantic Media writing should be cut from the same cloth – critical on the merits, but informed by charity and forbearance in measuring motive and personal character.


Atlantic Media is an EOE of Minorities/Women/Vets/Disability.
