Video Production Intern

| Greater Boston Area

PURPOSE:

The Predictive Index—the talent optimization leader—is an award-winning best place to work (Inc., Glassdoor, Boston Business Journal, The Boston Globe).

Our mission is “Better work, better world," and we take great pride in PI’s power to supercharge workplace relationships and culture to achieve the unthinkable. We’re our own best case study! You’ll be working toward a mission that inspires you, and you’ll be surrounded by fun, smart, driven people day in and day out.

POSITION:

We’re searching for a video producer, and the opportunity is absolutely enormous. We've just started to focus a lot on video as a marketing department, and we're ramping up our efforts in 2020. We're in the middle of launching a podcast, multiple long- and short-form video series, consistent promotional videos, and filmed interviews with experts. We'll need your ideas and drive to make each of these things bigger and better.

You'll be working on our 18-person (and growing) marketing team. You'll be reporting to our senior video producer, who has a soft spot for Northeastern co-ops since he was one himself! (See his story here.) There will be big expectations for you in this role, and the work is viewed as mission-critical, but we’ll give you a large degree of freedom and autonomy.

The company needs someone who takes initiative and isn't afraid to take risks. One of our core values is action; we believe that errors of action are better than errors of inaction, and the person in this role must embody that perspective at a deep level. We move and make decisions very quickly at this company, so you should also be comfortable with that.

We are looking to you to help brainstorm ways to improve our current content, produce/shoot/edit videos, write for the blog, and take photos of partners, employees, and office spaces.

YOUR DAY-TO-DAY:

  • Video production (your day-to-day will vary greatly)
    • Writing scripts
    • Setting up equipment
    • Working camera or audio
    • Editing videos
  • Photography
  • Writing and editing
  • Contributing to other miscellaneous marketing initiatives

SHOULD YOU APPLY? 

Please don’t be shy! We’re hoping you have at least some of the below skills/traits, but we also know this is a learning process.

  • Video editing
    • Must have a basic-intermediate understanding of editing in Premiere Pro
    • A basic understanding of Adobe Illustrator will help (thumbnails, resizing logos, etc.)
    • Organized file management
  • Video production
    • Proper exposure, framing, setting up multi-cam shoots, etc.
    • Monitoring and adjusting audio levels, proper placement of microphones, etc.
    • Storing and taking care of equipment
  • Portrait photography
  • Writing compelling copy

DESIRED TRAITS:

  • Demonstrated record of taking initiative
  • Ability to collaborate and work well with others, and make people feel comfortable on camera
  • A natural leaning toward being creative
  • A desire to master new skills
  • A genuine desire to get feedback from others
  • People most qualified for this role will be:
    • Honest - we trust each other to take accountability
    • Cross-functional - at PI, we work as a team!
    • Smart - learn our systems and our industry quickly
    • Energetic - we have a vibrant team, energy is required
    • Hard-working - we are growing; you MUST be willing to roll up your sleeves
    • Fun - because we work hard, we have lots of opportunities to unwind

We know you will love it! If you possess the experience and traits mentioned above, PI could be a great place to get some absolutely amazing career experience (and maybe even a future job) under your belt.

If interested in the role, send any video samples to Connor Lewis at [email protected] and convince him you're the best candidate for the job.

An Insider's view of The Predictive Index

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Employees have flexibility in where and how they work. I feel empowered to build a work-life model that reflects the needs of my life situation and still achieve maximum productivity. When my husband was ill, I was able to rearrange my schedule to care for him. PI offered me the flexibility to work at home so that I could balance family and career.

Blanka

Localization Program Manager

What does your typical day look like?

I'd say a good third of a "typical" day is spent meeting with people to make sure our team is building the right stuff and in the right way. Another sixth my day is spent interviewing or thinking about hiring and onboarding since we’re growing so fast. The last half of my day is hopefully spent programming! Building cool stuff is my favorite!

Stefan

Lead Software Engineer

How does the company support your career growth?

Career growth is at the center of this company. My manager appreciates when I have career conversations with him and proactively schedules a development meeting on a quarterly basis. We’re also growing quickly which is naturally creating opportunities for growth. Want proof? We’ve had 40 promotions in the last two years while having 115 employees!

Alex

Team Lead, Account Executives

What’s the vibe like in the office?

It’s vibrant and full of energy with animated discussions every direction you turn. It may sound weird, but it feels like there is knowledge in the air you breathe. You learn something new every day just by interacting with the talented people you work with.
