Are you a video editor? 

We’re excited to offer a full-time opportunity for an experienced video editor to grow with our established and expanding company. 

The primary focus will be in post-production (editing, motion graphics, sound design, colour grading) with expanded activities on set assisting with select productions.

While this position is remote/work from home, the successful candidate will need to be available for required on-set days. Some travel may be required. This position will work on content for top Canadian and international brands shot by industry-leading professionals. 

About You

 

You love making engaging content, and have an undeniable rhythm and editing style that delivers exceptional finished work. You’re comfortable wearing multiple hats – you’re a problem solver, experienced editor and technician. You’re a storyteller who can transform raw footage into beautiful content and you’re on top of current video trends. 

You’re able to follow direction and work as part of our team, but also able to work independently and put your own creative stamp on projects. You understand the importance of project deadlines, and you work efficiently and accurately.

You love being hands-on and thrive being able to work across multiple projects and styles – from long documentaries to short sizzle edits. And you’re an absolute pleasure to work with.
