Job Description

The Washington Post is looking for a multi-talented videographer/producer/editor for our expanding personal health and wellness coverage. This person will partner closely with the Wellness editor and deputy editor, along with visual colleagues, to create social-first video focused on fitness and wellbeing.

The person in this role is expected to brainstorm with reporters, generate original ideas and make news-driven and audience-focused decisions on what video to create. The ideal candidate is a versatile journalist with a background in creating science-based service journalism focused on fitness, nutrition, mental health, relationships or other personal health topics. This is the ideal role if you love creating "how to" videos that demonstrate a variety of topics, whether a creative fitness routine, a new meditation practice or a surprising nutrition tip.

The successful candidate is a producer capable of executing a story from idea to publication, a videographer skilled with a camera and a phone, and an editor who can work quickly in a style native to social platforms. In this role, you will also be expected to adapt social video for onsite presentation. This position requires at least three years' experience in a fast-paced newsroom, strong news judgment and the ability to multitask. Editing quickly on Adobe products is also required.

This position is based in our Washington, D.C., newsroom.

Interested candidates should upload a résumé with links to their work and a cover letter outlining the experience they would bring to the position to our jobs portal. All application materials can be uploaded to the same field. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis until the position is filled, but those received by 07/10/2022 will be prioritized. The cover letter should be addressed to Director of Video Micah Gelman and Wellness editor Tara Parker-Pope.

The Post strives to provide its readers with high-quality, trustworthy news and information while constantly innovating. That mission is best served by a diverse, multi-generational workforce with varied life experiences and perspectives. All cultures and backgrounds are welcomed.
