Role x You
VMG is looking for a Freelance publishing coordinator to help carry out Google Web Stories publishing across Vice and Refinery29.

- Review videos and assist with editing decisions for cutdowns (timecodes for longer videos)
- Assist with SEO and headline writing on stories
- Build Google Web Stories in our CMS
- Assist with programming videos
- Archive and organize published Google Web Stories
- Pitch & shoot original stories when time allows
- Strong copywriting skills and an understanding of the VMG brands’ voices.
- Organized and a self-starter
- Working knowledge of SEO best practices
- Video editing skills are a plus but not a requirement
Please include an informal cover letter with your application. Tell us about yourself and link us to a short form vertical video (on any platform) that spoke to you recently. Tell us what you think made that video so good.
