  • Description

    Not your everyday video position. Challenging and fast moving, yet friendly and supportive: a career you will look forward to every day. Work with intelligent people in an exciting environment where every month is different.

    ---Positions Available:---

    ** Full time Video Editor / Motion Graphic Designer
    ** Other Positions: We are also hiring for other positions (videographer / shoot producer, graphic designer, writer, marketing project manager, UI/UX Designer, and more). You may apply for multiple positions separately. If you know someone in any of these areas, please do them a quick and friendly favour by letting them know about this posting.

    ---Position Overview:---

    ** Full time and permanent
    ** Flexible hours (for example: choose to start your day between 6am and 10am, work late some days and shorter on others).
    ** 85% internal projects (for multiple product lines), 15% client projects.
    ** Focus on post-production: position does _not_ require equipment handling nor production shooting (although we can optionally make use of such secondary talents if you have them).
    ** Focus on achieving noticeably remarkable and portfolio-worthy results, with only some projects that simply need to be done in a short timeframe.
    ** The same variety as working at an agency, but without the cutting corners to deliver too quickly.
    ** Engage in constructive debate to challenge your editorial choices; standing up for your choices, while being willing to use respectful criticism, with or without the sugar coating, to iterate into even better designs.
    ** Orchestration of post-production elements (time coding, video supers, title cards, special effects, typography, transitions).
    ** Building motion graphics from static graphics provided by our graphic designers, and by using third party motion templates.
    ** Screen capture production including deciding zoom in, effects, methods of focusing attention, setting up and populating sample data in apps, sensoring information.
    ** Technical finishing (audio levels, color mastering, compression, encoding, resizing for multiple destination sizes).
    ** Crafting the perfect pace for a video: this is absolutely critical to many videos, too slow or too fast and the effectiveness drops dramatically.
    ** Storyboarding to present to stakeholders.
    ** Collaborating with script writers, the marketing team, and providing context to the videographer.
    ** Selecting and directing voice talent.
    ** Explore and be inventive using A/B testing methodology to create test variations, request resulting data from the analytics team, and iterate until we discover new ways to reach peek results for mission critical videos.
    ** Gain experience with numerous video types: animated explainer videos, YouTube commercials, infographic videos, company culture interviews, training videos, and short snippits for social media.
    ** Does _not_ involve TV broadcasting.
    ** Does _not_ involve constant tight deadlines nor overtime that lead to results you are not proud of; there is pressure but it is manageable and work has steady hours.

    ---Requirements:---

    ** Passionate about video storytelling and post-production specifically
    ** Can be very fast for prototyping variations, but can dig deep for stunning results
    ** Superb understanding of factors that affect attention span and engagement of viewers
    ** Attention to detail
    ** Takes pride in work.
    ** No specific requirements for formal education or industry experience. We evaluate each applicant based on merit and potential rather than formalities, however a portfolio is required.

    ---Nice To Have:---

    ** Experience with Adobe Creative Suite or Creative Cloud (Premiere Pro, After Affects)
    ** Experience in a wide variety of video types (perhaps from working in an agency environment or otherwise)

    ---About The Work Environment:---

    ** Friendly, non-threatening, and non-political environment.
    ** Mid-sized company but retaining the speed and flexibility of a smaller company.
    ** We strive to have every employee sitting near a window for natural light and to have plenty of plants throughout the office; we care about employee health.
    ** Free onsite massage therapy.
    ** Private nap rooms for isolated thinking time or for taking a nap if you didn’t sleep well last night.
    ** Social events worth remembering (fencing competitions, curling, video game or board game parties, coding competitions, commando combat training, robotics club coming soon, etc).
    ** Unlimited access to pillage our kitchens for caffeine, sugar, healthy snacks, soups, and more :)
    ** Fast paced
    ** Consistent work/life balance: mandatory overtime is very rare.

    ---Applying:---

    ** What do you have to lose by exploring the possibility? Applying does not take long and we keep your application confidential (never disclosed to existing employer).
    ** Even if you don't have your resume updated or ready to go, apply anyways, we want to hear from you!
