Interested in working at The Mighty?

We’re looking for people who are driven to succeed and passionate about making a big impact. Even if these positions aren’t a perfect fit, we’d love to hear from you.

Right now, we are hiring for full-time and part-time positions.

 

Full-time positions:

Social Video Producer

We’re looking for a jack-of-all-trades video producer who can help take our team to the next level. We need someone who can own the entire production process from start to finish (including brainstorming, script-writing, filming, editing, encoding, and distribution), and who isn’t afraid of producing several videos per week for our social media audience of 3.5 million people.

If you want to jump into a fast-paced startup environment to produce helpful videos that reach millions of people with an empowering message, this job is for you.

To do this well, you’ll need:

  • Experience in end-to-end short-form video production
  • The ability to tell compelling stories in less than 2 minutes
  • The ability to create shareable video content for social media (especially Facebook)
  • Expertise in making dynamic videos that pull in media from a variety of sources
  • Expertise in the full Adobe Creative Suite (Premiere skills a necessity, After Effects and Illustrator skills a plus)
  • Experience in DSLR and/or mirrorless cinematography
  • Experience in motion graphics a plus
  • A genuine interest in the topics we cover (mental health, disability, and other health conditions)
  • Experience living with a disability, illness, or mental health condition a plus
  • A learner’s mindset — the social media landscape is always evolving, and you’ll need to stay on top of the latest trends

This is a full-time position located in our Burbank office (Los Angeles).

Please send your resume and cover letter to [email protected] with the subject line Social Video Producer – [your name].

Live Video Producer

The Mighty is a community of real people living with health challenges. It’s our mission to give our community a platform to connect with each other and share their stories.

We’re looking for a talented (and extroverted) video producer to lead our live video operation. This is an opportunity to work directly with our wonderful community of contributors and readers to produce several live videos per week.

To excel in this role, you’ll need:

  • A collaborative mindset
  • Advanced organizational skills (you’ll be managing lots of moving pieces)
  • The ability to community and collaborate with contributors in a professional way
  • A love for meeting new people — you’ll be working with new live contributors every week!
  • Genuine interest in the topics we cover (disability, disease, mental health, etc.)
  • A personal connection to the health community

This is a full-time position located in our Burbank office (Los Angeles).
