  • Contribute to notes and feedback for other team members’ videos 
  • Create occasional content in response to client RFPs 
  • Work to meet monthly quotas and help define conversion benchmarks 
  • Work with brand leads and leads across the content organization to identify affiliate opportunities 
  • Identify when an area of focus isn’t working and pivot
  • Immerse yourself in the world of video commerce to identify exciting new content opportunities 

You Have: 

  • Experience producing and editing live-action video content for a variety of platforms and social networks
  • Experience working with and brainstorming around talent
  • Interest and/or background in working with products and review content
  • Ability to ideate around livestreams, live-to-tape content, and short form content
  • A passion for video metrics and the competitive instinct to ideate on your own success
  • You are self-motivated, epically curious, highly adaptable, and able to juggle multiple projects at once
  • Experience or interest in lifestyle content is a plus
