OUTPUT EDITOR

We’re looking for a brilliant output editor to join our team! This position is remote, well paid and you’ll learn loads everyday. You’ll help manage one of the world’s most diverse media companies. 

If you’ve got 5+ years experience in social video publishing, we’ve got R40-R50K a month for you. 

If you’ve been in the game 10+ years, you’re looking at around R80-R100K a month. 

If you’ve run a major digital newsroom and reached billions of views, name your price! 

This is a really tricky position to fill. You get seasoned editors with great ethical decision making. Then you find young journalists who understand Snapchat and what 13-years-olds in America want to watch. But finding candidates with both those skills is hard! 

The ideal person for this job has a minimum 5+ years of experience working in social video publishing. Maybe you’ve done time at Buzzfeed, NowThis, AJ+ etc. If these news brands aren’t on your radar, this gig probably isn’t for you 😉 

You’ll have the broadest creative mandate to drive innovation in news. The job involves working with almost 100 producers, video editors and journalists all over the world. Your objective is to ensure output and editorial targets are met to the highest standards. That means doing stories that matter, and getting lots of people to watch them!  

We’ve got over 6M+ followers and most of them are aged 13-24. How do you speak to them about suicide, or FGM? The editorial decisions are tricky! The successful candidate will be responsible for the output of the SEEN shows-including editorial control, reporting, selection and compilation of material and production. You’ll be working in a small team and planning and implementing effective use of resources.

Responsibilities include working closely with senior editorial managers to output a minimum of 30 stories per week on Snapchat, Facebook and other platforms, across our 10 shows. You’ll also need to have a great understanding of analytics and be responsible for increasing uniques, watch time and subscribers monthly. Above all, you need to ensure the highest standards of fact-checking and verification of all content we produce and publish at SEEN. 

We’re a startup growing really fast and doing some absolutely brilliant journalism and factual storytelling. If you’re tired of trying to fix old media companies, come build a new one with us!
