Mid Weight Video Editor

Join what3words as they are looking for a Mid Weight Video Editor

Who we are:
Our mission is to become the global standard for addressing. Street addresses weren’t designed for 2022. They aren’t accurate enough to specify building entrances, and they don’t exist for parks, rural areas and many parts of the world. This makes it hard to find places and causes problems and inefficiencies on a global scale.

That’s why we created what3words.

We divided the world into 3m squares and gave each square a unique combination of three words. It’s the easiest way to find and share precise locations.

Over the last year, what3words has been used in 193 countries, and our monthly active users continue to grow at an impressive pace. Our tech is used by emergency services, delivery companies, eCommerce businesses, ride-hailing apps and NGOs, and is integrated into the navigation systems of millions of cars around the world.

Who we are looking for:
We are seeking a mid-weight Video Editor with great Premiere Pro knowledge and After Effects competency to work with our experienced, full service video department.

what3words has a different creative model. You’ll work collaboratively in a motivated award winning marketing and design studio, reporting directly to the Video Team Lead. You’ll need to be proactive, entrepreneurial and enjoy the rapid pace of a tech company that’s trying to create a global standard.

We create a large variety of projects, from use case films to advertising campaigns, for many countries, and we’d like to get better at it

Equality, diversity and inclusion at what3words
