Mashable is seeking video interns to join a growing team of storytellers developing and producing content at the forefront of digital distribution platforms. The internships offer candidates the opportunity to gain invaluable, hands-on experience.
The role involves pitching video ideas, and being able to tell compelling visual stories. It requires editing videos across a range of subjects, including technology, digital culture, social good and science. Those videos will also be re-edited and adapted for multiple platforms, from Facebook to Snapchat to YouTube to Apple News, in addition to the Mashable website. Video interns should be ready to get out in the field, too.
The ideal candidates are capable shooters and fast editors with a passion for storytelling. They are news buffs who always know what's going on in the world, and are ahead of the curve on social media trends.
Candidates should know how to edit on Adobe Premiere and how to use Adobe After Effects and Photoshop, various types of audio and digital video equipment including Canon and Sony cameras, and how to shoot awesome video with their iPhone.
Here are some of our recent videos to give you a feel for the types of things you'd be creating:

A successful intern should have a genuine and passionate interest in developing knowledge and skills around the growing social platform-based video industry. An enthusiasm for understanding new consumption patterns and distribution methods, alongside an active curiosity for discovering what makes new platforms unique, is required.
The job is based in our spaceship-like New York City headquarters with perks that include snacks, high-fives and friendships with famous animals.
