Video Production Specialist – Job Posting
The Goulet Pen Company
Onsite: Ashland, VA
Full-Time: 40 hours/week (Hourly, Non-Exempt)
Reports to: Media Team Manager
As our Video Production Specialist, you will help us to visually display our fountain pen-related products to better educate our engaged and enthusiastic fans and customers. Content marketing helps us build awareness, drive sales, and engage with our community through a number of online channels. Videos showcasing our products have been an integral part of our branding from beginning. It’s something that our customers value highly as both a way to learn about the products they’re interested in buying as well as seeing the passion our team has for the products.
You will be working with our co-founder, Brian Goulet, on a number of different video ideas and shoots as well as with other members of our team. Our style of videos is based heavily on detailed product knowledge, with a lot of macro work shooting fine details of particularly small objects (pens basically!). You’ll get to do a little bit of everything: ideation and collaborating on ideas for new videos, lighting and shooting, editing and publishing. While you’ll be working on a team, the majority of your work will be done independently.
Collaboration and Creativity
What type of person are we looking for?
An excellent communicator. Quickly respond to requests by email, chat, or in person.
Incredibly flexible. Deadlines and priorities change daily, and the ability to refocus and prioritize is essential.
Super-duper organized. Hundreds of videos are to be named, saved, and backed up using existing naming conventions and file management.
Detail oriented. “Retail is detail” - our customers notice and appreciate every single little detail about the products we display. Often in video form we’re not able to edit it once it’s been published, so making sure you get it right the first time is key.
Great attitude. Work well with others, stay positive, and strive to live out our company values.
Product knowledge. Understand exactly what our products are, so you can best portray them in videos. No previous pen experience is required, just be ready to learn!
Please include a demo reel with your resume so we can see examples of your work.
