Insider is hiring a paid editorial fellow to produce videos about art and design.
The Insider Fellowship Program is for early career journalists who want to spend six months learning from a newsroom full of passionate, dedicated journalists. Fellows are assigned to teams and become experts in digital storytelling. They produce real work that is distributed to our audience of millions, and leave ready for the next phase of their journalism careers. For more information on the Insider Fellowship Program, see here.
Fellows on our art and design team spend their time doing meaningful work: researching, pitching, and writing scripts for videos on topics including art, home improvement, and all things design. They have the opportunity to contribute to videos about things like interesting innovations for the home and cover artists creating unique pieces of art. They will also be responsible for gathering and creating content for our art and home Snapchat shows on weekly deadlines.
Video-writing fellows work closely with video editors, but they do not need to have video-editing experience. We’re looking for ambitious reporters who can find and chase great stories and relay them to our audience in a compelling way.
All our video-writing fellows should have:
- Experience reporting and writing (school publications are okay)
- A passion for digital storytelling and voracious reading habits
- Familiarity with digital and social media
- Ability to work quickly and collaboratively with a fast-paced team
- Proofreading and copyediting skills
Additionally, for the design team, we’re looking for someone with the following:
- An interest in covering topics such as art, architecture, furniture, and products
- Script-writing or video production experience
- Ability to source footage and make relationship with content owners
- Pitch and execute the leading of local shoots that cover design topics
This is a paid fellowship based out of our New York office. Fellows are encouraged to work 40 hours a week, and fellowships run for six months. Start date for this position will be in July.
