About You

You’re detail-oriented, efficient, and a make-it-happen kind of person. And you’re ready for a new challenge at a different kind of company—a social impact agency that runs on the belief that stories can change the world.


HUMAN is a storytelling agency that creates media for social impact. We work with public and private-sector companies, non-profit and intergovernmental organizations to design objective-driven stories that come to life through branding, video, and other digital media. Whether we are helping a brand redefine its corporate social responsibility platform or creating a documentary about a nonprofit, HUMAN helps strengthen organizations’ commitment to positive social and environmental change.


We are looking for a talented, tech-savvy video editor that shares our curiosity and passion for compelling short form storytelling. You should have creative depth and experience in the documentary format but with a cinematic and narrative eye. Must be able to take content from initial conversation to an executed deliverable while working with HUMAN’s Creative Director and Producers to form a cohesive vision.



  • 2-5 years of experience working in production, motion graphics, and editing documentary format pieces.
  • Well-versed in Adobe Premiere, along with the rest of Adobe CC software (After Effects, Photoshop, etc)
  • Candidate must have a laptop and their own edit software.
  • Must be a self-starter, great problem solver, organized, resourceful, attentive to detail, works well with others, and has a “can-do” attitude.
  • Ability to work cooperatively in a team environment.
  • Able to mix different media into a complete experience (video, graphics, music).
  • Experience in typography, color, composition, compositing, key framing, and title design.
  • Color correction and sound design experience.
  • Highly creative, organized and able to work independently with little direction
  • Organizational skills with the ability to multi-task and meet tight deadlines in an exciting, fast paced environment.
  • Technical knowledge of edit systems, codecs, and video encoding
  • Applicants must provide a link to examples of most recent work: demo reel, full story examples, animations.
  • Must have legal right to work in the United States.

This is a full time, salaried position with a six month contract to start. Must be able to start on May 15th, 2016.
