We are a small, successful videography & video production company in the South Bay. We work with corporations, non-profits, startups and various Silicon Valley VIPs. We mainly do promotional videos and live events. Check out our website and portfolio at: spiralmoon.com.
We are looking to add a part-time/temporary Video Editor to join our small team. We are looking for someone that’s dedicated, passionate, hard-working, has great attention to detail, and a great attitude!

The ability to learn and adapt quickly is also important, as well as problem solving skills.
You will be expected to hit the ground running from the start. Applicants must have extensive knowledge of Adobe Premiere, as we do not have time to train you.

This is a temporary position and not guaranteed to continue for any specified length of time. A qualified part time employee who is shown to be value added to the company may (but there are no guarantees) eventually be offered a full time position with the pay of $2,800/month + a percentage from any projects/clients that you bring in.
The ability to provide your own PC/Mac for editing is a plus, though not a requirement.
