About The Dodo:

The Dodo is the leading digital media brand for animal people and the #1 animal brand on Facebook. We’re committed to creating fun, entertaining, emotional animal-related content — everything from cute viral videos to heartwarming rescue stories and meaningful advocacy pieces. Our audience is everyone who loves animals, from people who are obsessed with their pets all the way to people dedicating their lives to making the world a better place for animals. We are looking for passionate, proactive, flexible people who are interested in helping build a brand that not only entertains but makes people around the world feel connected to animals.

The Dodo is seeking a creative and experienced visual storyteller to join our video team. To thrive in this role, you’ll need to excel at sourcing and crafting an emotionally compelling narrative that hooks viewers immediately and keeps them watching until the very end. You’ll feel comfortable producing a mid- or longer-form social video from start to finish — from sourcing content online to conducting interviews, scripting and structuring a memorable, emotional story. You’ll create engaging video content for our social platforms, including: Facebook, Facebook Watch, Youtube, Instagram and Twitter. The ideal candidate will have an obsession with digital media, and be nimble and eager to stay two steps ahead of rapidly evolving best practices. A passion for finding the heart of the story and a data-driven urgency for reaching a wide audience on social media are key.

Responsibilities:

  • Source compelling stories about animals by mining social media and working with animal organizations
  • Find the Dodo angle that makes stories sharable through conducting interviews, requesting or producing more content and crafting an original narrative
  • Conduct outreach for permissions and log footage
  • Use video editing techniques and rigorous storytelling to create several videos a week that exemplify the Dodo voice and brand
  • Use feedback to iterate on content selection and editing techniques, working closely with other editors on the team

Qualifications:

  • 2-4 years relevant experience editing on Adobe Premiere
  • Experience creating emotionally compelling narrative video (please provide clips)
  • Basic After Effects a plus
  • Desire to work for a mission driven company and a love of animals
  • Extremely creative, organized and dedicated to creating best-in-class videos
  • Able to work independently and also exchange feedback with a close-knit team
  • Deep understanding of the Dodo brand and a drive to excel at the kind of storytelling that resonates emotionally with animal lovers
