Job Description
NBC News Digital is seeking video producers to create and distribute native short-form video across NBC News and MSNBC's social media accounts, with a particular knack for what does well on TikTok and Instagram.

The ideal candidates will have a deep understanding of social media and how to package social video of all types across TikTok, Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. They will have experience editing content in the style of each platform, and understand what type of video engages audiences who don't ever stop swiping and scrolling. They will know a compelling visual moment when they see one - whether it's harrowing breaking news footage, a must-watch interview, or something light and buzzy - and be able to produce it quickly.

The producers will work directly with reporters and network talent to gather video from the field and behind the scenes to create social-first content. They will be responsible for identifying and clipping must-see moments from NBC News and MSNBC air and live video feeds. When news breaks, the producers will post native social video to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and TikTok. The role requires impeccable editorial judgment and multitasking under pressure.
