The Barron’s Group is seeking a social video producer to join its video team.
We are committed to the growth of visually compelling journalism on a range of social platforms. This video creator should have a deep understanding of Snapchat, TikTok, Instagram and other short-form video apps and be able to transition seamlessly between video creation and community interaction while maintaining Barron’s Group’s journalism standards.

We expect this producer to interact with our followers and build strategies to shape those exchanges into additional videos that are valuable to the audience.
Top candidates for this position will have a background in video journalism, demonstrate solid shooting and editing skills and have some experience with graphics in After Effects and Illustrator. On-camera experience is a plus. While you may start this job remotely, you will be based in our New York office.
