MasterClass is transforming online education by enabling anyone in the world to learn from the very best. We are deconstructing what makes an actor able to cry on demand, how an athlete defies gravity, and what it takes to write a bestseller. Our online learning content is available to students anywhere anytime, which supports our mission to democratize education.
We are a quickly growing VC-funded startup based in San Francisco and have created online classes taught by famous masters—Gordon Ramsay, Hans Zimmer, Werner Herzog, Serena Williams, Dustin Hoffman, Kevin Spacey, James Patterson, Annie Leibovitz, Usher, Christina Aguilera and many more to come.
MasterClass is looking for a talented and motivated Video Editor to help create amazing classes. Ideally, you are excited about creating an online education experience that transcends the passive e-learning models popular today.
