Video Editor
(full-time, on-site)

(From the desk of Jared Falk, CEO & Seinfeld Trivia Expert)

Okay, let's be honest. These job descriptions are usually super long winded and boring. So I am not going to write it like I'm trying to show everyone how eloquent I am (really? Did I just use the word "eloquent" to try and not sound eloquent... hmmm) Anyways, let's get down to it.

I love people and have built this business off a strong value of relationships before technology. As a drummer myself, I see the art in everything we do, from marketing, customer support, and especially video editing.

I don't want to work with someone who wants to simply perform tasks within a box, cutting boring education videos that will eventually show up on reddit titled "look at this terribly boring educational video". I want to create beautiful educational videos that are wrapped in entertainment.

Education should be fun, especially if it's related to a hobby like learning an instrument. Our students are the best, they're like family to us, and deserve to watch videos that inspire them to get better at their craft.

As a video editor on our team, you are going to be helping students from more than 100 countries achieve their dreams of musical freedom. If you are a musician you understand what I'm saying: that moment when you're playing a song and you get that euphoric feeling where everything just fits.

You'll work closely with the production team editing video lessons for our online educational websites such as: Guitareo, Pianote, Recordeo, and Drumeo (we are also working on more).

Did I mention our existing team of almost 30 people? They are rockstars! We love each other and get to come to work everyday and do something super cool. Last year was our best year ever in the history of the business which was started in 2003, so we are growing and have goals to educate every musician in the world, regardless of age, location, or skill level.

Our team loves to hang out, go on company retreats, beers after work (or at work), and video games at lunch. But, that doesn't mean we don't work our butts off to reach our goals. We never stop pushing, in the good times and bad.

As a video editor at Musora, it's most important that you have a strong work ethic and spirit of self-improvement. Each day is an opportunity to do better than the last. Is that you? Are you a musician who loves editing video? Are you a video editor who loves music? We want to hear from you!

Now let's get down to the nitty-gritty. Being cool is most important, but you also need some hard skills. Here is a breakdown of what your responsibilities will be:

  • Know at least one NLE (Premiere, FCPX, Avid) in and out, but be prepared to work in Premiere.
  • Solid understanding of Photoshop
  • Basic understanding of After Effects
  • Proficient skills in AE is a bonus
  • Audio production skills are also a bonus
  • Must be organized and detail oriented
  • Camera operating experience is a bonus

FINAL DETAILS
(read this, as it explains how to apply)

Applications must be send by email through the contact link wherever this ad is posted (don't apply in person). Along with your resume, please include a cover letter and tell me some fun facts about yourself. Be honest, no hype, no drama, let's just see if this is a fit.

If you have questions about the job that you want answered before you apply, just send me a text and I will respond ASAP: 1-604-309-0914

Wage is going to be based on experience but will be between $18-22 per hour starting. And the business is growing so if you're kicking butt there is always a chance to move up!
