Position description

The Washington Post is seeking two digital video producer/editors, with demonstrated histories of producing stylized and artistic visuals, for a new digital travel initiative. These are newsroom roles, working closely with freelancers around the world. These jobs have three functions:

  • Embed in the new digital travel initiative to pitch or identify strong video opportunities
  • Identify, vet, hire and guide freelance producers/videographers through the interviewing and filming process
  • Edit the finished interviews and b-roll into a polished, high-energy video in the narrative style of Washington Post video journalism


We are looking for someone with experience in a fast-paced news environment who can think creatively about how we deliver journalism to new audiences. Successful candidates will have excellent news judgment, excel in a collaborative team environment, are well-read on travel trends and can identify the most interesting stories a location has to offer. Candidates are able to pitch, produce, shoot and edit videos from start to finish and can take on any role within video production if needed. This role requires the ability to edit quickly, expertly and with style on Adobe Premiere. Advanced skills with Adobe After Effects and Photoshop are a definite plus. The ability to shoot and light studio and field interviews is essential.

These positions are based in our Washington newsroom and are not eligible for remote work. These roles will not involve regular travel.
