Video Editor

Los Angeles, CA

Gizmodo Media Group is seeking an experienced, dynamic and highly creative Video Editor to join its digital team in Los Angeles.

About the Role:

We are looking for a skilled video editor who can create high-quality digital videos. The ideal candidate is quick and clean — able to respond efficiently to breaking news — and also capable of switching gears and digging deep into hours of footage to find the best story. You should be comfortable working solo or as part of a big, collaborative group. Additional video skills (producing, shooting, animation, motion graphics) are a big plus — but this is primarily an editing role.

 

Qualifications: 

  • 3-5 years experience in digital video production and editing, with demonstrated results in creating widely shared videos on social and online platforms
  • The ability to move between quick, timely projects and longer deep dives, juggling the needs of the news cycle with long-running series and short documentaries 
  • A self-starter who can stick to deadlines and deliver clean and on time. 
  • An interest in broad types of stories — we make videos about science, cars, celebrities, politics and more
  • Ability to edit independently when needed, but also to collaborate and work alongside writers and producers
  • Independently edit (Premiere Pro) high-quality video, while also working alongside writ work alongside crews or in pairs as needed
  • Experience in one or all of writing, scripting, and shooting is a big plus
