Overview
We are looking for a full-time experienced video editor with a compelling portfolio who can help create films about one of the most significant trends of our time--the emergence of a new science: The Science of Where.

You will join a growing team of highly experienced, award-winning creatives charged with implementing a new strategy--to use visual storytelling not only to increase brand awareness, but to show how geography, mapping, and Esri's technology can help address the great challenges of our time. These stories include mitigating climate change, building smarter cities, making businesses more sustainable, and responding to natural disasters.

You are passionate about storytelling and ideally have some experience making science and technology content accessible to general audiences. You will work with producers and executive producers to bring compelling video to life across various platforms including theatrical display for major conferences, high profile advertising campaigns, and online publication across highly trafficked web sites.

Responsibilities
Edit a wide variety of styles that include short form story-driven documentary, brand anthems, promos, branded content, advertising spots, and social media content
Be as comfortable editing to enhance the narrative of a short form documentary as cutting a stylized, fast-paced montage for an advertisement
Work in all phases of editing from first draft to fine cut
Perform fine cuts of rough cuts developed by others (e.g. predators and freelance editors) when needed
Collaborate on defining distinctive styles that make our videos stand out from the pack
Collaborate closely with multiple teams
Perform basic sound design and mixing, color grading, and titling as needed
Work on multiple projects at once while never compromising the level of creativity and quality
Participate in video publishing and archiving processes

Requirements
All candidates must provide samples of videos they’ve edited in addition to a CV, all demonstrating strong understanding of storytelling, creativity, and willingness to innovate.

5+ years of experience in digital video editing
Proven editorial judgment with strong foundational knowledge of editing techniques and approaches
Highly advanced in using Adobe Premiere Pro while having basic After Effects skills
Experience working with motion graphics designers and a basic familiarity with graphic disciplines, such as character animation, motion typography, and compositing
While the editor is not expected to be a motion graphics artist, being able to incorporate motion graphics and style templates for new and existing formats is required
Flexibility to adapt with changing timelines and deliverables, implementing feedback with ease and in a timely manner
Familiarity with rights and clearances for obtaining audio and third-party footage
Strong organizational skills and attention to detail
Bachelor’s degree; specific education in film craft is a plus
Recommended Qualifications
Experience editing scientific and technology themed content
Intermediate to advanced motion graphics technical and design skills
Studio based/multi-camera editing experience
