About the Company:

We are building the cloud for video production & post

Currently, due to the massive files professional video cameras create, professional video producers have considerable difficulty getting post-production teams to work collaboratively in the same room, much less in the cloud. Because of these and other factors, video professionals often pass around hard drives like the storage scarcity of 2010 is still happening.

Our core product is a content management platform which offers enhanced collaboration & access to Hollywood Studio-quality IT infrastructure traditionally reserved for professional video producers. We do this by providing cloud access through a SaaS content management system (CMS) to the physical infrastructure needed for professional-quality video production.

We have proven the concept works with an Emmy award winning Alpha Client & are currently building our MVP.

About the Team:

We are a tight knit group of artists and technicians who are passionate about video production. As a video production tech startup, we work hard and sometimes long hours. It isn’t uncommon for video production workdays to be 12 hours. Our team isn’t phased by working in such an environment and has the ability to keep cool working long hours under the pressure of strict timelines.

Compensation:

This is a 1099 contract position. Salary & Equity based on experience

TO APPLY:

This is an equal opportunity employer and we value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
