About Carwow

Online platform for buying new car.

Job Description

Want to work for the most-watched car channel on YouTube in the WORLD?

Well, carwow is looking for a dynamic full-time Video Editor to join our industry-leading editorial team which produces all content for the carwow car comparison website and its associated social media platforms: YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and Tik Tok.

The carwow YouTube channel does more than 65M views a month (that’s more than Top Gear’s YouTube channel BTW). And we have grown our subscriber base to over 5M in less than five years since our first review video went live. Oh, and all this has been achieved organically.

We’re not done yet though! We want to continue our phenomenal growth and have a strong lead as No.1 Youtube channel for car content over our rivals.

You’ll be instrumental in growing our Youtube channel, ensuring our videos are fun, engaging and shareable using tools like data from YouTube analytics to tailor your work to our audience and improve the watchability.

Are you the kind of person with the drive and determination to join us on this journey? If so you’ll be given the opportunity to make the role your own with the freedom to do what’s necessary (well… within reason obvs) to help us achieve our ambitious targets. Be warned: you’ll have to spend quite a lot of time with a range of amazing cars producing awesome content on them.

If you’re up for the challenge, and don’t mind joining in filming the odd drag race or two or having to work from the back seats of a £500,000 Rolls-Royce, read on....


About the team

You’ll be part of the carwow editorial team reporting into the Director and working alongside our filmmakers and writers.

The editorial team’s purpose is to raise awareness of the benefits of carwow, provide unbiased advice to our users and ultimately help people buy the right car at the right price.

Our social media channels are flying, enjoying super high rates of reach and engagement week after week. Meanwhile, the editorial on the website is attracting record numbers of car buyers and is ranking high in Google, knocking established brands off the top spots.

carwow is an energetic scale-up and you’ll be working in our open-plan Victoria offices. We celebrate our successes and learn from our mistakes. We’re very passionate about carwow’s mission and want to be the very best. If your talent and drive matches ours, get in touch.

About carwow

Consumers face many challenges when buying a car – from choosing the right one to buy, to making sure they’re getting a good deal, to figuring out all the different ways to finance it – and here at carwow we aim to fix them all.

We’ve come a long way since starting out in an attic. In 2018 we were the 6th fastest growing company in Europe. In 2019 Daimler joined some of Europe’s leading venture capitalists in investing in carwow – in fact we’ve raised over £80million in funding, including a successful crowdfunding scheme last year.

And we’ve set high targets for 2021 to ensure we grow even faster.
