Yes, we’re bringing you news of yet another cool job posted at Twitter.
If you love nothing more than creating and watching Vines, that won’t qualify you for this job, but combine that enthusiasm with actual expertise and you might have a shot!
But please note, there’s one desired qualification that we’re guessing is pretty important: They want someone “hilarious.”
The Video Editor/Producer will be an important part of Twitter’s video team and will “help produce and edit the stories, videos and case studies that elucidate the value of [Twitter’s] service and articulate the discursive elements of [Twitter’s] brand.”
And the job description is testament to the writing skill this position requires. No slouches need apply. Lover of adjectives and energy will be given top priority:
Your approach to narrative equally delights and informs. You have an organized mind that bursts with creativity and possess a relentless hunger to create the best possible work.
You also must be “a super awesome and passionate video maker and all this stuff:
- A portfolio of videos you’ve created and/or worked on that inspire, educate, and delight
- Proven understanding of best practices and tools used in video production and asset management
