We help smart, talented, creative professionals make a meaningful impact in media, technology and the world around them. The Vox Media house of brands includes industry-leading media forces like SB Nation, Eater, The Verge, Vox, Curbed, Recode, Racked and Polygon, and reaches an audience of hundreds of millions, generating over a billion content views each month.
Curbed is seeking a talented Writer/Editor to join our video team in creating thoughtful and dynamic non-fiction stories.
The ideal candidate will be a strong storyteller – visually and narratively. You own projects from beginning to end. You write scripts that translate to memorable and shareable videos. You can take original and/or found footage, and find a compelling story in the edit. You’re comfortable creating short-form and long-form content for platforms like Facebook and YouTube.
If you're strong in graphics and animation, that's a plus. If you're comfortable shooting in the field and in studio, that's also welcome.
We’re looking for a curious and collaborative team member. Someone who's a self-starter, enterprising and driven. An ability to juggle multiple projects, be agile and flexible in a busy work environment is a must.
And if you are passionate about architecture, design, real estate, urban planning, art and culture, we’d love to hear from you.
