DESCRIPTION

Job summary
Do you want to create content for the largest audience of photography and video enthusiasts in the world? DPReview is looking for a new Editorial Content Creator to join our team based in Seattle, WA.

DPReview.com is home to high-quality digital camera reviews, the best photography news, interviews, opinion and analysis on the web.

We are looking for an experienced content creator and technology advocate with a good working knowledge of consumer digital imaging devices and systems of all shapes and sizes, along with a demonstrable familiarity with standard digital photography and video workflows. We expect you to be able to work on your own to produce written and video content from start to finish, with a clear focus on the intended customer, and with as much attention to detail as we apply to our work.

The ideal candidate should be passionate about technology, and excited about digital storytelling. We want you to play a key part in the expansion of our editorial content into new segments and channels, and as such you will be constantly challenged in your work, and will be expected to suggest and innovate.

Key job responsibilities
In this role you will help DPReview’s editorial team shape the future of our content, in various formats and across various channels. You will work closely with both other editors and freelance writers to plan, produce and edit technical and other consumer-oriented content according to our high quality bar. You will be required to maintain a high standard of work in a deadline-driven environment. Successful applicants will be disciplined and organized, but self-starters, prepared to take risks to meet new and emerging customer needs.

A day in the life
As part of a busy editorial team you will work closely with our in-house and freelance content producers, and attend daily standups and weekly team meetings at which we will expect you to come prepared with suggestions and ideas. Much of our work is highly collaborative, but you will have the freedom to pitch and scope individual projects. As well as written and video content production we also encourage ‘hands-on’ time with new imaging products, and creative photography and videography is a big part of our day-to-day work.

About the team
Our team is made up of a small number of highly experienced editors and creators, who work with a pool of trusted freelance writers and video producers. We encourage collaboration and we maintain a largely ‘flat’ structure when it comes to the hierarchy of ideas and ownership over content.

BASIC QUALIFICATIONS

• Bachelor’s Degree

• At least 1 year’s experience creating high-quality written and multimedia content in the consumer technology space for a print or online publication

• Demonstrable photographic and video skills

• At least 1 year’s experience creating content for social channels (i.e., Instagram and TikTok) in an organizational setting

• Proven ability to create and edit multimedia content, and a good instinct for strong visuals

• Familiarity with standard editing software for stills and video – Photoshop, Capture One, Premier, Final Cut etc.

PREFERRED QUALIFICATIONS

• A deep understanding and appreciation of imaging, in all its forms

• Experience of using modern integrated CMS platforms (i.e., Arc, Brightspot, Chorus, WordPress)

• Experience managing internal and external editorial resources and budgets

• Familiarity with modern online publishing tools and content optimization techniques including SEO and Social Media.

• Experience with podcasting (on the production side)

• Comfort in front of the camera, in a production context
