Quartz is looking for a talented video editor eager to experiment with visual storytelling. You will be joining a highly collaborative team of journalists, producers and animators who are creating a new weekly global news show that’s running on Facebook Watch. We’re blending explainer storytelling with doc-style field reporting, and we’re seeking a highly-skilled, creative editor to help us shape the series. You will be excited by the prospect of building something from the ground up, and thrive under deadline.
This is a role for someone who thinks with their left and right brain; who’s hyper-organized, fast, and efficient, but loves to experiment and tinker. This editor will invariably find the gem in any footage, and have an eye for the smart, often counterintuitive way to best craft a film.
We’re looking for candidates with a minimum of five years editing experience. You should be adept with Premiere and Adobe, and be comfortable mixing color and sound. This role is a full-time, ten-month contract position, with benefits, based in New York City.
You can watch the first episodes in our series here. ADD LINK https://www.facebook.com/QuartzNewsShow/
To apply, please submit a cover letter, resume, and five links to relevant work.
