Position Overview

The Creative Editor at p3 represents an exciting role within the Editorial Department and the company as a whole. We are looking for an individual who knows how to break the mold, challenge preconceived storytelling principles, play with tried-and-true filmmaking techniques, build audience trust, and above all, create videos that make people feel something. A good     candidate is someone who understands that deadlines, budget, strategy, and creative collaboration are all part of creating a successful product.


This role will recognize your creative instincts and strong organizational abilities, and give you a certain level of autonomy.
