OUR SPOT: The New York Post is the nation’s oldest newspaper with the youngest, most ambitious video department.

The ideal candidate will have:

  • 1-2 years experience editing short form celebrity videos for digital outlets
  • Expertise with Adobe Creative Suite, specifically Premiere
  • Deep passion for celebrity journalism and possess deep knowledge about the latest celebrity gossip, feuds, scandals and hookups (You should live and breathe celebrity lifestyle, fashion and social media, with your fingers on the pulse!)

  • Ability to color correct and mix audio
  • Experience working both with and without a producer
