Video Series Producer

This position is a one-year contract.

Atlantic Studios explores multimedia storytelling in the rapidly evolving world of online video. We produce original documentaries, interview series, and other nonfiction videos for The Atlantic’s digital properties and beyond.

We seek an experienced producer to help oversee production of short-format video series, focusing on hosted formats in particular. This producer has a strong track record of developing and producing informative, explainer-style videos for social video platforms. The ideal candidate is skilled at shaping scripts, directing host talent, and collaborating with animators, producers, and writers in a fast-paced newsroom environment. This role will not involve producing documentaries in the field. This one-year contract role will focus on creative experimentation, developing sustainable show formats, and building audience on YouTube. This person can be based in Washington, DC or New York, NY. 

Responsibilities include:

  • Overseeing original series from pitch to publishing.
  • Leading development and managing production of videos on subjects The Atlantic covers, including politics, science, culture, and more.
  • Balancing multiple projects and deadlines with grace and skill.
  • Collaborating closely with The Atlantic’s journalists to develop ideas, craft scripts, and shoot videos.

Qualifications of the Ideal Candidate:

  • At least four years of professional experience 
  • A track record of success creating compelling, shareable videos for the web
  • A creative, innovative sensibility and high editorial standards
  • Strong research and writing skills
  • A deep knowledge of industry-standard software (Adobe CC), digital video production, and the YouTube landscape
  • Excellent attention to detail, thoroughness, and accuracy
  • A love of collaboration and experimentation


Atlantic Media Values:

Across Atlantic Media, generally, the firm looks for two “pillar gifts” in its candidates.  In all of us, these are more aspirational than actual, but they are central in our intentions.

  1. Force of Ideas: At the center of Atlantic Media 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, giving voice, argument, and flight to the latter.
  2. Spirit of Generosity: Atlantic Media seeks in its ranks a spirit of generosity – a natural disposition in each colleague toward service and selfless conduct. Atlantic Media writing should be cut from the same cloth – critical on the merits but informed by charity and forbearance in measuring motive and personal character.


Atlantic Media Company is an Equal Opportunity Employer.

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