Video Editor

We are not currently accepting applications for this position.

We’re adding to ProPublica’s growing video team and looking for an editor who can help shape the look and feel of our video content.

We’ve produced short documentary videos like this.

And this.

As well as long-form documentary films like this.

We’re also creating a new innovative team who will be doing visual evidence investigations and creating edited videos.

What you’ll do:

  • You will work closely with our talented video journalists and visual evidence team to create video stories for a range of platforms.

  • You’ll collaborate with our reporters, engagement team and news apps team on stories.

  • You will turn your hand to short snappy videos that might be embedded in stories or for social, but you will also craft powerful and beautiful long-form documentaries.

What are we looking for?

  • Someone with hands-on experience with editing video that involves investigative journalism and understands ethical and editorial journalistic standards.

  • Someone who has experience editing video projects that are often not picture-rich and have to convey complex information and ideas.

  • Someone who has motion graphics and animation skills.

  • Someone who can change gears from working quickly to deadline on a short piece to editing a long complex documentary over a long period of time.

  • Someone who is used to working in a small team and being collaborative.

If this sounds like you, apply here.

This is a one-year contract position.

The closing date for applications is Feb. 8.

We know there are great candidates who may not fit into what we’ve described above, or who have important skills we haven’t thought of. If that’s you, don’t hesitate to apply and tell us about yourself.

We are dedicated to improving our newsroom, in part by better reflecting the people we cover. Here is a breakdown of our own staff. We are committed to diversity and building an inclusive environment for people of all backgrounds and ages. And we are taking steps to meet that commitment. We especially encourage members of traditionally underrepresented communities to apply, including women, people of color, LGBTQ people and people with disabilities.
