NOW HIRING: Video Editor, Junkee Media

Australia’s leading youth content publisher Junkee Media has a rare
opening for a gun video producer/editor to join our editorial team in
Surry Hills, Sydney.

Junkee launched four years ago with a remit to shake up Australia’s
pop culture landscape. With a fresh take and unique attitude, Junkee
quickly established itself as one of the most interesting new voices in
Australian media. Junkee was named Media Brand of the Year at the
Mumbrella Awards in its first year online, and its funny, smart, ballsy

Now we’re on the hunt for a full-time video producer/editor to help
us grow our footprint and make an impact. As a member of both the
editorial and video teams you will need to pro-actively come up with
video ideas every day, then shoot, arrange interviews and edit
engaging video content that looks at topics young Australians are
most interested in.

The Ideal Candidate:

Will “think video” and be a digital native with an understanding of
what works best online, and how to create it. Maybe you studied
video journalism at university, or you have some solid experience in
creating amazing video content already, have great organisational
skills and time management, and – most importantly – have a keen
interest in news and pop culture and all of the content that surrounds
it. We want someone who can easily express their attitude and take
on the world with video.  We’re looking for a self-starter with a
thorough knowledge of current events and online publishing trends,
who’s able to see a video through the entire production process, from
conception to execution and publishing.
