FiveThirtyEight Is Hiring A Temporary Full-Time Video Producer

FiveThirtyEight is seeking a temporary Video Producer to join our team full-time from mid-July through mid-November. This person will pitch, storyboard and edit videos about U.S. politics, filling an important role in our coverage of the 2022 midterm elections.

The Video Producer will report to and work with the Senior Video Producer to direct and edit a short-form video series that gives our audience a deeper, data-informed understanding of American politics.
