Journalism Jobs & Internships
ABP Media is seeking a video editor to work on our editorial team. We’re a media and live events company focused on telling stories that connect audiences with issues that affect their lives and deliver a diverse array of perspectives. As a startup, we’re building this thing from scratch, so we’re looking for a self-starter who’s eager to be part of the creative brain trust. We’re seeking someone who can hit the ground running, is flexible in the face of change and loves a good challenge. This position is based in San Francisco.
Along with producing quick-turn videos on trending topics, you’ll shoot and edit longer features and ongoing series. You’ll also help shape the editorial voice of the site, and as part of a small team, there will be plenty of room to grow with the company!
The ideal candidate is a storyteller and news junkie who finds innovative, surprising ways to approach timely subjects. You should be capable of taking a video from initial idea to beautiful finished package, and be up to date on best practices for videos that live on our website and social platforms. Most importantly, you should be enthusiastic about telling human stories that matter and creating content that performs.

We reach Millennials and Generation Z where they live and play, on mobile devices and social media, and at live, multifaceted events like Emerge Impact + Music.
