Post-Production Supervisor

| Greater NYC Area
Our internal content team at Skillshare produces Skillshare Originals, classes that feature thought leaders, icons, institutions, and companies, meant to educate and inspire the Skillshare community. Our internal video team plays a crucial role in bringing these classes to life and we’re looking for a Post-Production Supervisor to ensure we’re set up to create the best content possible, from media ingest to final export.
We’ll look to your project management expertise to create solid technical workflows for our team, grow and manage our freelancer network, and maintain our high bar for quality content that represents our brand. You’ll largely own the strategy and operations piece of the post-production process for our Skillshare Originals, but occasionally roll up your sleeves to pitch in on the editing front.
You’ll be joining a creative, mission-driven team producing content that impacts students across the globe. We’re excited to meet you.

What you'll do:

  • Own end-to-end post-production processes for Skillshare Originals. You’ll set and manage post-production schedules, assign projects to editors (freelance & in-house), coordinate with producers, and ensure final video files and assets are delivered on time and ready to publish.
  • Drive quality and efficiency for the production team. You’ll evaluate and provide feedback on edits, find efficiencies to improve our systems, and consistently drive our team toward better work and workflows.
  • Manage our stable of freelance editors. You’ll find, evaluate, hire, and manage a team of freelance editors to keep our team flexible and ensure we have access to the talent we need to make Skillshare Originals the best they can be.
  • Provide technical and data redundancy support. You’ll prep footage from all shoots for editing (ingesting media, organizing projects, and syncing footage) and manage our data redundancy through physical hard drives, Network Attached Storage, and Amazon Web Services.

Why we're excited about you:

  • You have strong project management skills with a proven history of creating streamlined processes (you know how to keep the trains running on time)
  • You have an expert understanding of Adobe Premiere and Media Encoder, as well as video files and codecs
  • You’re familiar with editing best practices and have a baseline knowledge of media ingesting
  • You naturally anticipate issues in post and are proactive to address them, collaborating with the wider team when needed
  • Experience at a digital media agency or startup, a plus

Why you're excited about us:

  • Impact: You’ll be leading the team to streamline and scale our operations – which means we can create more high-quality content that inspires and educates our community.
  • Growth: You’ll have the opportunity to wear a lot of hats and take on more responsibility over time.
  • Our team: We have a passionate, talented team that is a lot of fun to work with.
  • Our mission: We’re doing work that matters – connecting lifelong learners around the world and empowering them to pursue their creativity.
  • Flexibility: We believe that doing your best work means living a full life. That means different things for everyone, so we optimize for trust, invest to support remote teams, have an unlimited vacation policy (with a required minimum!), and encourage work-life balance.

An Insider's view of Skillshare

What’s the vibe like in the office?

We balance being both focused and flexible in our office. In this kind of fluid environment, we can seamlessly ease in and out of individual heads-down time to group sessions; from meditation to collaboration; from desk to the lounge. The vibe lends us the freedom to play to our strengths and value our differences in working styles.


Senior Product Designer

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Cross-team collaboration is frequent and organic at Skillshare; we foster a uniquely friendly atmosphere of openness and shared purpose. Through cross-team threads, project-based meetings, comments on RFC's, pull request reviews, Q&A sessions, and, of course, simple conversations, collaboration commonly happens across a table or across time zones.


Engineering Manager

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Skillshare has supported my career growth and trajectory tremendously. I started here 3 years ago on the Community team, but after discovering a passion for coding, Skillshare provided me with a mentor and on the job time to learn. It's been two years since I switched careers, and I'm so grateful that I get to come in and keep learning every day.


Software Engineer

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

As a management team, we strongly believe in making ourselves accessible. This includes: 1:1s with direct reports, skip-level meetings, team-wide meetings, coffees with people across departments, and attending team events. More broadly, we apply the same foundational rule we all learned in kindergarten: treat people the way you want to be treated.


VP, Operations

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

We're in an exciting position - we have a product that we believe in and a community that believes in us. The question we face is: how can we build a platform which works for the Skillshare of today, but will scale to the needs of the Skillshare of the future? It’s not enough to keep up with growth; we must build for where our growth will take us.
