Tuts+ Is Looking for a New Course Producer (Audio/Video Production)!
We’re looking for a new Course Producer to help instructors produce top-quality video and audio for their Tuts+ courses.
In this key role, you will primarily focus on working with new instructors, bringing them up to speed with Tuts+ course creation. You’ll be a friendly, knowledgeable member of our team, coaching them through their first few courses with Tuts+ and making sure that their audio, video, course assembly and overall presentation meets our standards. You will also help our existing instructors with setup, equipment, editing, post-production and presentation advice.
You'll work 40 hours a week, and you'll have the flexibility of working from home to your own schedule. As part of our global Tuts+ Course Production team, most of your interactions will be remote, meaning you’ll meet with colleagues and instructors on a regular basis via Google Hangouts and/or Skype. Your instructors will be spread predominantly across Europe, US and UK time zones, so ideally you’ll be from a location that makes communication with them easy to arrange and conduct.
What We're Looking For
With a minimum of three years experience in quality video and audio production, you will be excited about reviewing current standards and sourcing cost-effective ways to continuously improve the quality and educational value of Tuts+ course content.
The ideal person to fill this rewarding, flexible role would have:
- 3+ years proven experience in quality video/audio production
- Excellent written and verbal communication skills (you’ll be explaining to instructors how to create/improve courses via video, not in person)
- A background in education is preferable
- A proven history of self-driven productivity and superior time management
- Understanding and appreciation for remote, global working, including willingness to work outside of traditional hours and be flexible with the timing of meetings
- The confidence to initiate conversations, and the tact to tailor advice to differing experience levels
- Patience when working with individuals and groups to achieve a desired quality outcome
- Comfortable when presenting on camera
- A preparedness to become extensively familiar with Tuts+ standards and guides
- A personable warmth, sense of humour and respect for individual team members
- A clear sense of fairness and a consistency of set expectations
- Familiarity with Basecamp and Trello (nice to have)
- Familiarity with screencast software; experience with one or more of Screenr, Screencast-O-Matic, Screenflow, Camtasia, and QuickTime
