Job Description

# Who we are 

As a new industry alternative for independent artists, UnitedMasters provides premium music distribution services and facilitates unique partnerships between artists and the world’s biggest brands. We enable artists to maintain full ownership over their master recording rights while introducing them to millions of new fans worldwide through our direct brand partnerships.

The UnitedMasters team is made up of musicians, marketers, engineers and storytellers with backgrounds from YouTube, SoundCloud, Pandora, Instagram, Dropbox, Complex, VICE and more. We work hand in hand with the award-winning creative teams that forge those innovative partnerships at Translation. 

# What's the role? 

UnitedMasters is seeking an experienced video editor with a passion for music, culture and tech to join our production team full-time in NYC. If you’re a visual storyteller who thrives in a fast paced environment, this job is for you.

  • Identify and tell compelling stories in the UnitedMasters voice.
  • Ensure content is optimized for best performance on social platforms and/or broadcast.
  • Innovate ways we can take our content to the next level. 

# Who are we looking for?

You are results and bottom-line oriented, yet will possess deep appreciation and sensitivity towards people, culture, and values. You are thick-skinned and persistent, but at the same time diplomatic and politically aware. You are personable, smart, passionate, and optimistic. You possess a deeply pro-active, hands-on mentality. You hold yourself accountable and take great pride in your work – just like us. We’re proudly diverse in our backgrounds, our accents, and our fiercely held personal passions. We are, in every sense of the word, independent, and not beholden to anyone else’s agenda. So are you.

# What will set you up for success

  • 2-5 years of experience editing various formats of video content.
  • Fluent in Adobe Premiere and After Effects.
  • Understanding of all video content formats and platforms. 
  • Ability to work in a fast paced, collaborative environment. 
  • You breathe Music, Tech and Culture.
