Job Description

The Washington Post is seeking a supervising video producer and editor to oversee our evening breaking news coverage. The ideal candidate is an experienced video producer/editor who welcomes the demands of breaking news, has sound news judgment and is an excellent collaborator across teams. Strong communication skills are required along with knowledge of video SEO best practices.

The producer/editor will oversee breaking news video coverage in the late afternoons and evenings, assigning stories to others and producing/editing their own stories. Responsibilities also include sourcing and licensing video, editing quick-turn clips to help readers understand unfolding stories and conceiving and editing scripted packages to explain ongoing issues.

The producer/editor will coordinate live-streaming coverage during evening hours, alerting internal stakeholders to developing news, promoting events to users on- and off-platform and optimizing streams and clips for both real-time and later viewing.

As The Post expands its 24-hour news coverage, this producer/editor will also serve as the video department's primary liaison to the overnight video staffing in Asia and live news desks around the world.

This ideal candidate has at least five years of experience in a fast-paced newsroom environment and the ability to multitask and act as a player/coach. Fast, proficient editing skills on Adobe products are required. We are looking for an excellent collaborator who will work closely with colleagues across the newsroom.

This position is based in our Washington newsroom. Once we resume normal operations, it will not be eligible for remote work.

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.

Candidates should upload a résumé, cover letter and three examples of outstanding, integrated multimedia work to our jobs portal by Apr 27. All application materials can be uploaded to the same field. The cover letter should be addressed to Senior Producer Nicki DeMarco, Deputy Director of Video Phoebe Connelly, and Managing Editors Tracy Grant and Krissah Thompson.
