As an Associate Video Editor for The Dodo, you’ll join the largest dedicated animal brand on social media. You’ll create video content for our social platforms that showcases animals at their best and most dynamic. You'll be in an environment that encourages innovation, but also fosters opportunities to learn and develop your storytelling and technical skills.
As our ideal candidate, you have at least 2 years of relevant experience editing on Adobe Premiere (After Effects a plus) and creating video content at a digital media company. You have a strong sense of visual storytelling that is rooted in a clear understanding of both The Dodo brand and user behavior on Facebook and other social media platforms. You feel comfortable creating videos quickly and efficiently from start to end, including sourcing content online. You are excited to create "signature Dodo" videos, discuss data-driven best practices, and brainstorm creative new ideas. The prospect of creating animal content all day, every day excites you!
You’ll be joining a fast-paced team of self-starters who enjoy collaborating and receiving feedback, so clear communication is essential. We’ll look to you to manage your time, work quickly and efficiently, and have an accurate pulse on how long your individual projects will take to complete. Creative thinkers and problem solvers will thrive on this team.
