The Wall Street Journal is looking for an associate video journalist to join its New York-based video team to contribute to topical and timely news, feature and explainer video production across the department.
We’re looking for a candidate who is passionate about news and eager to learn in a fast paced, rigorous environment. In this role, you will support video journalists and senior video journalists in the production of a wide range of the department’s videos, including text-on-screen, reporter-fronted analysis, in-depth explainers and original field pieces.
You should have a professional background in video journalism and demonstrate solid editing skills in Adobe Premiere. Experience with shooting and graphics in Adobe AfterEffects, Photoshop and Illustrator is a plus.
You will juggle many tasks and should be excited about covering the day’s news events across a variety of coverage areas. The ability to react quickly and hit deadlines is essential to the job, as is the ability to bring challenging topics to life visually.
Because the role is focused on producing and supporting the production of timely news coverage, please send work-sample links to news videos you have worked on that stand out in the 24/7 information cycle. Candidates with a record of pitching stories for ongoing news coverage will take priority.
To apply, please submit a cover letter clearly outlining how your skills and experience meet or exceed the key candidate requirements, along with links to five videos that represent the type of work described.
While you may start this job remotely, you will eventually be based in our NYC office. You will report to the director of video content and programming.
