Description

Are you looking for a massive creative opportunity within a growing company? Do you dream in pictures? Are you allergic to mediocrity? If so, join us and help express the Write of Passage brand to people all over the world.

At Write of Passage, your primary role is to translate words into compelling imagery. Our company is bursting with personality, and we want to translate that energy into a radical overhaul of our narrative presence. 

Write of Passage is creating the best online writing school in the world. We have taught over 1,000 students worldwide a system for publishing quality ideas, connecting with like-minded people, and elevating their careers through writing on the Internet. Our graduates are using online writing to build audiences, launch businesses, and make an impact—living life on their terms!

Write of Passage is now considered the gold standard for community-driven, cohort-based, online courses. And, we’re growing. Our vision is to build a global platform for writing instruction in the 21st century while delivering the best educational experience in the world.

We’re looking for a passionate storyteller, with an array of creative and technical skills, to help us elevate our output across a range of media.

We work within limited recording windows, so most of our creativity happens in prep and post. You help us come up with captivating ideas that can be executed swiftly on shoot day, and set us up with room for innovation in post-production.

We’re a collaborative team where details and feedback matter. Everyone has agency and autonomy to make decisions and move fast. We want you to be a proactive leader in optimizing our workflow for stronger videos and the systems that enable them. 

Finally, ideas are the star here, not ego or hierarchies. Bring your best to the table.

What you will be doing
  • Edit a variety of videos (YouTube, course content, marketing pieces, webinars, podcasts, workshops, etc.)
  • Create and refine standard operating procedures and maintain checklists for all recurring processes
  • Innovate with screen capture to ‘create footage’ in post
  • Apply basic color correction/grading and sound design
  • Create clips and GIFs to feature in newsletters and courses
What you will NOT be doing
  • Being told exactly what to do and when to do it
  • Relying on "I've always done it this way" when it comes to your tools and techniques
  • Doing the same boring tasks day-in and day-out
  • Focusing solely on post-production supervision rather than doing match cuts or montages
Key Responsibilities

Own our visual storytelling - visualizing scenes in your head and sourcing the footage needed to bring them to life, demonstrating great narrative principles like color, sound, design, pacing, character, humor, etc.

  • At least 3 years of experience as a professional video editor
