Video Production Intern at The Predictive Index
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.
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.
