The Producer/Editor, reporting to the Executive Producer, is responsible for producing creative, high-quality video content to inform and inspire viewers and highlight the accomplishments of the University to the Boston University community and beyond.

The Producer/Editor must possess the ability to direct a video program from the concept and design phase through final production. This position requires a motivated, energetic, creative individual who will seek to push the envelope in terms of envisioning and creating innovative, high-quality video programs to reach an audience that ranges from current and prospective college, students, professors, staff, alumni, parents, and the general public. The Producer/Editor is responsible for producing, shooting, and editing video programs that will be distributed through various University communication channels including the daily news website BU Today, the University's homepage, and the University's social media channels including Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Twitter.

Required Skills

This position requires a Bachelor's degree or equivalent with 3 to 5 years of experience in web video production, with proficiency on the Avid editing platform and Canon cinema-style cameras. To produce modern, relevant programming on the University's editorial and social channels, the position requires a continually up-to-date understanding of the social media landscape, and the ability to create a range of video content: documentary-style profiles, social videos, explainers, and research-based pieces.

May require work outside normal business hours. Occasional travel, as needed.

This position is eligible for Boston University's generous benefits package including health, dental, life insurance, tuition remission, paid time off, and so much more!

The Difference Is Our DNA

What compelled the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to award Boston University a grant to fight newborn mortality in Zambia? Why did Martin Luther King, Jr. adopt BU as a place where he could hone his message of justice and equality? And what is the catalyst that prompts 32,557 students from 135 countries to call BU their home every semester? It’s in our DNA: an inherent desire in each of our students, faculty, and staff to vigorously and dauntlessly pursue knowledge—and embrace the unlimited possibilities that come with it.

A Community Unlike Any Other

As you can see below, it takes people, ideas, and a little luck (Boston, you’re our town) to make BU what it is today: one of the most dynamic universities in the world.

Celebrated thinkers: On any given day, students will find themselves mesmerized by Nobel Prize winners, a poet laureate, and the first biomedical engineer ever to receive a MacArthur Foundation “Genius Award,” among others.

Extraordinary teaching: When a classroom starts to percolate with new ideas, it’s because our faculty of scholars and accomplished practitioners know how to ignite students’ imaginations. That’s why we reward our best teachers with BU’s most prestigious honor: The Metcalf Cup and Prize.

Groundbreaking research: With faculty dedicated to a creative, interdisciplinary approach to problem solving, BU has become a leading global research institution—propelled forward by over $350 million a year in sponsored program revenue.

World-class students: Elite students from all 50 states and 135 countries pursue higher education on BU campuses in Boston and at programs in L.A., D.C., and more than 30 other cities on six continents.

A city within a city: Today, 80% of our undergrads live on campus, which could explain the 525 student activity groups alone.

The greatest college town in the world: Boston. ’Nuff said.
