Job Opening: Videographer


Position: Videographer
Company: Coffee Meets Bagel
Location: San Francisco CA US

Video content is quickly becoming one of the most effective and stimulating ways to communicate and disseminate information today. It has evolved into a truly interactive, and succinct platform to engage with audiences and attract viewership. Video marketing is no longer just a camera and a subject: it involves cleverly displayed text-on-screen, manipulating multiple graphics to story-tell, and of course amalgamating all of that (and much more) to convey your message in as short a time as possible (hello shrinking attention spans)!

Coffee Meets Bagel is looking to jump headfirst into this market by partnering with a Videographer for one-off projects, with the potential for full-time employment. Our ideal candidate knows how to inform and engage the millennial generation, and lives to find compelling, visual ways to tell stories. We’re looking for an editor with a high-level of self-sufficiency, strong collaboration & communication skills, and able to adapt to changing show styles, schedules, and feedback.

Responsibilities include:

    • Producing short videos that tell creative, fun, and compelling stories to capture the heart of our target audience–which are single Millennials looking for real relationships
    • We are looking for someone who knows how to tell short stories that evoke an emotional response from our viewers in video format
    • Topics may vary from: Telling the brand story of Coffee Meets Bagel, stories of our members & couples who found each other onCMB, and new feature highlights (among others)
    • You need to be able to write, direct, shoot, and edit the video
    • You need to be able to work closely with our marketing team, but otherwise work with little direction
    • Maintaining brand tone & voice, while meeting our quality standards

    Our ideal candidate is:

      • Highly creative, organized, and most importantly, FUN
      • Is a great story teller and knows how to speak to the Millennial generation
      • Ability to prioritize and meet tight deadlines
      • Has a portfolio of relevant editing projects
      • Comfortable working in a fast paced, ever-changing, production environment
      • No specific software experience is required, this is at your discretion, but you should know what tools you need and how to use them
      • Proficient experience in video editing software
      • Able to create graphics and animations to be placed alongside video
      • Think Buzzfeed infovideos–animations, text, and graphics over audio/video
      • Having experience with the main social media platforms is a plus
      • Ideally, we’d love to work with the equipment you already own and are familiar with; but owning your own hardware is not a requirement
      • **Only candidates located in SF Bay Area will be considered**

      Employment and Compensation

        • Contract position
        • Pay is by-project, and will be market competitive
