YouTube Video Project Manager

Direct video and post production on a number of interesting projects seen by thousands.

Growth Machine is expanding quickly, and we need your help to produce the best YouTube videos on the Internet.

We’re looking for an experienced freelance video director or project manager to work with us on client projects as well as the Growth Machine YouTube channel. If you enjoy video directing & post-production, seeing thousands of people watch videos you worked on, and working with a fun team that sends you a steady stream of interesting projects, then this is the role for you. 

Responsibilities:

  • Intake creative briefs to grasp the production team’s needs and specifications.
  • Review shooting script and raw material to create an editing decision list based on scenes’ value and contribution to continuity.
  • Work with our freelance video editors or your own team — you’ll get to decide!
  • Conceptualize and suggest b-roll clips to improve the viewer's understanding of the concepts of each video.
  • Consult with stakeholders from production to post-production process.
  • Create and gather all art required for YouTube publishing (such as thumbnail images, GIFs derived from YouTube videos, and social clips).
  • Publish YouTube videos with the content and metadata needed to maximize reach.
  • Continuously discover and implement new editing technologies and industry’s best practices to maximize efficiency.

Who You Are:

  • You have experience in video production — from knowing what makes a good script to having good taste in b-roll to working directly with editors.
  • You’re confident working independently, and don’t want to or need to be micromanaged.
  • You’re organized. You’re systems-focused and don’t let anything fall through the cracks.
  • You’re proud of your work. You want to work with us to create videos that will go viral and be viewed for years.
  • You’re punctual—deadlines are not optional for you.
  • Bonus: You understand YouTube metrics and know how to extract insights to improve and optimize video quality and cadence.
  • Bonus: You consider yourself a marketing generalist with some foundational understanding of content marketing.

Benefits of Working with Growth Machine:

  • A fun team. You won’t be a faceless freelancer. You’ll get to join our Slack and see the kinds of results your work is driving for the channels it’s being published on.
  • Learn some SEO, too. We’re one of the leading SEO-focused marketing agencies, and by working with us, you’ll pick up a lot of our SEO skills yourself.
