Bloomberg LP has built a significant media business spanning television, digital, magazine, radio and live event platforms across the globe. In the midst of a historic time in the media industry, Bloomberg Media is growing its global footprint and reach through new innovations from Quicktake to New Economy Forum. 

Bloomberg Originals seeks a seasoned, ambitious senior digital video producer to help grow the Asia-Pacific voice of the Bloomberg Originals' Short documentary team. We’re looking for a strong storyteller — someone who has a passion for journalism and a natural curiosity about business, politics, technology, culture, and lifestyle – and a team player who is willing to review and assist other producers in everything from scripting, interviews, shooting, through edit. This role will report into the region’s Shorts production team leader and help find best ways to craft and tell stories along with the studio’s development team.

We’ll trust you to:

  • Drive production execution on premium video content including explainer-style segments and short documentaries (conceptualization, storyboarding, outlining, production, edit & delivery) working with a variety of source footage and motion graphics
  • Work under pressure in a fast-paced studio environment while juggling multiple active projects at once
  • Build shot sheets, coordinate field production and receive the footage from shoots (the producer will drive this initiative, but will need backup/oversight from you when called upon)
  • Gain an understanding of newsroom initiatives and use knowledge of those campaigns to bring fresh and unique story ideas to the table for short documentary and series development
  • Run creative production meetings for greenlit pitches, series and campaigns alongside team leader
  • Review publish copy attached to videos from web headlines/descriptions to social language.
  • Maintain Bloomberg’s voice in all content, by providing feedback, editorial suggestions, copy editing scripts and tapping relevant stakeholders across the newsroom.
  • Excellent communication skills to represent Originals and liaise within the broader Bloomberg newsroom in meetings and through written and verbal communication.

You’ll need to have:

  • 8+ years of experience in video production/post-production within a news organization, digital publisher, documentary or production company
  • A refined sense of visual news and documentary storytelling and an ability to give fresh angles on them
  • The ideal candidate can take a video from pitch to publish, if called upon
  • A love of video storytelling, the production experience and an understanding of global trends. An interest in Bloomberg’s core background of general business, economics, and finance is a plus.
  • Video editing experience within Adobe Premiere and the broader Creative Suite
  • Camera know-how and field shooting/producing experience
  • Strong communication skills with exceptional English writing and script editing skills
  • Strong attention to detail, news judgement and experience developing compelling editorial story ideas for video
  • Collaborative team player with ability and willingness to work non-traditional hours and travel
