The ideal candidate would have the technical acumen to work efficiently in Adobe Premiere and After Effects, demonstrate a keen eye for slick motion graphics, and love creating video content that drives our mission forward across many digital channels. He/she must be able to hit frequent deadlines and have an interest in public policy.

This is a full-time remote role (although it is possible to work out of our NYC office).

  • Creation of platform-specific promotional video content (trailers, hype reels, supercuts, etc.)
  • Work with executive producers to create and maintain editorial workflows.

  • Assisting with archiving of full video project files and asset packages.

Experience and skills:

  • Experience with video productionā€”from concept through completion
  • At least 2 years of professional experience creating motion graphics and videos in Adobe Premiere and After Effects
  • Strong technical skills with post-production workflows (remote editing workflow experience is a plus)
  • Photoshop and design experience is a plus
  • Music & sound editing a significant plus but not critical (e.g., mixing and mastering final exports, sweetening VO, etc.)
  • Creative drive to explore new approaches to developing content for the Kite & Key brand
  • Interest in social media and platform-specific content creation
  • Ability to work well in a team setting
  • Detail oriented and responsible with deadlines
