Creative Video Producer

We are looking for a digitally native, highly creative video producer who can pitch and report stories for our newly-launched weekly show, Quartz News.

Quartz is a digitally native news outlet with headquarters in New York and bureaus worldwide. Launched in 2012, we are a guide to the new global economy for people in business who are excited by change.

The successful candidate needs to have strong journalistic instincts, an interest in international news, and an eye for smart, interesting—often counterintuitive—stories. You’re a self starter who can work independently as well as with the rest of the team to bring a story to fruition.

You should be a strong producer. On-camera experience, editing ability, and motion graphics skills are all pluses. Most importantly, you should have a strong grasp of how to structure a good narrative. You should be used to thinking visually, and know how to tell a story in the most engaging way.

This journalist will join a highly collaborative international team with a mandate to pursue stories best told in video. We are looking for someone with an obsessive interest in digital videos and a compulsion to find the most original, creative approaches to stories.

Knowledge of languages in addition to English are a plus. This role is based in our New York office.

 

The role is a full-time contract with benefits, through June 2019

 

To apply, please submit a cover letter, resume, and five links to relevant work - specifying your role on each.

Enterprise Values

Quartz recruits talent for two salient attributes or qualities:

  • Force of Ideas: At the center of Quartz work are the ideas within our writing.  We believe that ideas – to the good and not – have consequence. Our highest work is bringing rigor, insight, intellectual honesty, to that ultimate purpose of separating the bad from the good, and giving voice to the latter.
  • Spirit of Generosity: Quartz seeks in its ranks a spirit of generosity – a natural disposition in each colleague toward service and selfless conduct.  Quartz writing should be cut from the same cloth – critical on the merits but informed by charity and forbearance in measuring motive and personal character.

Quartz Media LLC is an EOE of Minorities/Women/Vets/Disability.

Pursuant to the San Francisco Fair Chance Ordinance, we will consider for employment qualified applicants with arrest and conviction records.
