Barreling into the corner Starbucks, iLugger in hand, you carry the weight of your work with muscle and mind. Too long has your brilliance gone unnoticed. "The people," you say to yourself aloud. "They must see my pretty little edits."
But a coffeeshop is no place for a video editor. That barista doesn't give a damn about NLEs.
Or maybe you don't edit in public. Maybe your Starbucks is an actual production studio. And instead of being disappointed by the muffins, you're disappointed by how marginalized you've become. Your creative spark has been constrained to the confines of a votive candle, lined up and burnt away in offering to a supreme power. Your boss mandated the use of silicone keyboard covers with Final Cut shortcuts printed on them. You need out.
Good news: The Verge video team is hiring. We're looking for a full-time video editor with a creative mind and an ambitious heart.
