Job Opening: Multimedia Editor at The Oregonian

The Oregonian is looking for a multimedia editor to join their team of award-winning journalists.

This editor’s responsibilities will be newsroom-wide. The new Visuals team member will:

  • Edit multimedia projects quickly, accurately and to the highest journalistic standards.
  • Add variety and strength to our daily multimedia production — increasing the tools for reporters and photographers and broadening the expectations for viewers.
  • Continue the ongoing training of reporters, photographers and editors in video technique, technical problem solving and story-telling skills.
  • Serve as an advocate for multimedia projects as editorial proposals are presented.

The chosen candidate will assist with helping to focus and better implement our newsroom-wide multimedia strategy. That will include editing and coordinating everything from clip video to highly produced multimedia projects. A special emphasis will include the continuing evolution of our photo department from a focus on the still image to one that embraces multimedia daily.

Applicants must have proficiency with Final Cut Pro and DSLR cameras. Working experience in Photoshop, Motion, Soundtrack and Aperture is also a requirement. And it’s preferred to have experience with HTML, CSS, Javascript, and Flash. In addition, this person should have a grasp of all social media best practices.

Interested parties should apply electronically by sending their material to:

Randy Cox,
Director of Visual Journalism
rcox@oregonian.com

Include a cover letter, resume, references and URLs to your portfolio.
Label each URL in the email.

Please, no hard copy materials.

Applications will be accepted through the end of February.
