Video Editor

Atlantic Studios (Atlantic Media)
New York

Atlantic Studios explores multimedia storytelling in the rapidly evolving world of online video. We produce original documentaries, interview series, and other nonfiction video content for The Atlantic’s digital properties and beyond. We also feature a diverse selection of videos by independent creators on the Atlantic Video channel.

We seek an experienced staff editor who is equally comfortable cutting documentaries, sizzles, and hosted explainers. The editor will be primarily responsible for working closely with The Atlantic’s in-house producers to edit our ongoing and new off-platform series (e.g., YouTube, Facebook).  We value sharp storytelling skills, a web-native sensibility, and a no-frills, get-it-done attitude.  Above all, we’re looking for that rare blend of breathtaking speed and attention to detail.  The editor will report to the executive producer and work out of The Atlantic’s offices in New York.

Responsibilities include:

Editing original nonfiction videos on subjects The Atlantic covers, such as culture, tech, science, politics, and more

Balancing multiple projects and deadlines with grace and skill

Working closely with The Atlantic’s staff producers to establish successful post-production workflows and high editorial standards

Qualifications of the Ideal Candidate:

A track record of proven success editing compelling, shareable video for the web

A creative, innovative sensibility and high editorial standards

A deep knowledge of industry-standard software (Adobe CC), digital video production, Premiere editing system, and online video platforms

A love of story, 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.

Force of Intellect - Atlantic Media seeks a discipline and rigor of thought as manifested, often, in exceptional academic performance and, later, success in a professional environment.

Spirit of Generosity - Equally, Atlantic Media seeks what we term a spirit of generosity – a natural disposition towards service and selfless conduct.

Atlantic Media is an EOE of Minorities/Women/Vets/Disability.
