Business Insider Films is seeking a smart, creative and experienced producer with a background in journalism to work on web series, shorts, and documentaries.
This person must have exceptional reporting and storytelling abilities — the ability to identify compelling and newsmaking themes and then to oversee productions, from conception to final cut, on multiple projects simultaneously.
The ideal candidate has a passion for digital media and knowledge of the themes of innovation, entrepreneurship, modern society and business, technology and science. Excellent script-writing skills are essential. Strong communication and multitasking skills, experience booking high-profile individuals, and an ability to meet fast deadlines are also required. It is a bonus if the person has hands-on experience shooting (Canon C100, C300) and editing (Adobe Premiere, After Effects and rest of Adobe Suite), but these skills are not required.
The producer will work closely with the growing team to create stories with a wide audience reach. Having a knowledge of HTML, CMS (i.e., WordPress), and social media is a plus. Here’s a look at BI’s growing content catalogue, which will expand further into long form with the newly established BI Films team:
