Job Description

VICE x Team

Ultimately, the R&C team (including you) is responsible for collecting, cataloging, and maintaining rights across all lines of business to ensure VICE content meets global production and distribution standards. The R&C team does a wide variety of work including but not limited to: advising on standards during pre-production, watching down content for legal concerns, and creating systems to easily query rights across our entire library. We thrive on self-sufficiency and personal ownership over the work. The team atmosphere is tightly knit and collaborative. We hope you are as well.

Role x You

You are a detail-oriented person with the ability to synthesize large volumes of communication and data.

In the short term, you'll be watching down content and learning how rights at the video level affect many different aspects of our content production. Reporting to the R&C Director, you'll gather deliverables and learn to operate our video library and rights management systems.

But after 6 months in this role, we see you as an autonomous member of the team. Managing content from pre-production all the way through to distribution.

And after a year you'll grow to address gaps and workflow issues through reporting from our systems, working with other teams within the company to help define better practices.


You have these:
• A college degree
• Minimum 1-year experience in a professional corporate environment
• Strong creative problem-solving skills
• Ability to self-prioritize workload
• Energy to use free time to learn and grow within your role

We'd love if you also had these:
• Coming from a media background or content production would be beneficial

We want to find people who believe in our goals and feel inspired enough to grow while they're here to fill the role, rather than someone who checks the boxes but isn't invested. We encourage you to apply and show us what you've got.

If you require reasonable accommodation during the application and selection process, please let us know. We will work together to best meet your needs.
