Who We’re Looking For

We’re looking for a creative content creator to join our exceptional marketing team! You will be responsible for planning, ideating and creating videos and live streams for Youtube, Tiktok, Twitch, and Instagram (Stories/Reels) to tell our story to different target markets, and to help us build a strong Nanoleaf community on social media. You will also be challenged to create unboxing and tutorial videos of our products with the injection of fun to keep traditionally boring videos entertaining to watch.

To succeed in this role, you must have a strong understanding of how to shoot a video from scratch, writing scripts, video editing, and knowledge of different social media video formats (i.e. horizontal, vertical, square, etc.) and how to adapt a single piece of content into these various formats. You must also have the creative knack for brainstorming video ideas and be able to consistently think outside of the box. You will be required to be on camera for a majority of videos and streams, so it is critical that you are comfortable on camera.

The ideal candidate is driven, proactive, organized and extremely dependable. You take full ownership of your work and enjoy figuring out better ways to do things. You actively follow the world of video creation and social media, and know it like the back of your hand. You have a passion for storytelling through videos. You thrive in a fast-paced work environment, and excel at managing multiple projects at once. You are a strong team player with a thirst for learning, a collaborative spirit, and a positive can-do attitude.

What You’ll Do

The Video Content Creator will be working as part of the Marketing team, reporting directly to the Creative Director. Your key area of focus will be around all things videos, ideating, storyboarding, shooting, editing and posting etc. You will be working with a team on larger campaign videos, while taking on smaller projects such as unboxing or tutorials independently with support from your team lead as needed. A typical week will include 1-2 unboxing / tutorial / social media videos, 1 Twitch stream per week, and sometimes 1 or 2 brainstorming sessions with the marketing team for campaign/video ideas.

Please send your resume and portfolio showcasing videos you’ve created to be considered. We will consider any personal video content creation as an asset, so include those as well!
