Quartz is looking for a talented video editor eager to experiment with visual storytelling about global news and issues. Our ideal candidate has strong journalistic instincts, global experience, and an eye for smart, interesting—often counterintuitive—storytelling. We’re looking for editors skilled in all aspects of post production, from color correction to sound editing.
This journalist will join a highly collaborative team with a mandate to shape stories best told in video. We are looking for someone with an obsessive interest in global news and current affairs and a compulsion to find the most original, creative ways to tell stories.
Quartz expects all its journalists to understand what distinguishes a YouTube video from one that runs on Facebook or Instagram, and who can use that knowledge to help the strongest stories reach the largest audience.
This is a role for someone who loves Quartz’s video storytelling, is excited about experimentation and tinkering. Developing new digital video forms—and empowering others to use them, as well—is a key challenge.
You should be adept with Premiere and the Adobe suite in general. Experience working outside the US and knowledge of languages other than English are a plus. This role is a full-time one-year contract position, with benefits, based in New York.
To apply, please submit a cover letter, resume, and five links to relevant work.
