Senior Content Creator (Video)

Job description

MUD\WTR is seeking a passionate video content creator with an established voice to augment our team. We're producing a wide variety of great projects ranging from social content to advertisements and docuseries, and need someone who can hit the ground running. We're seeking someone with great aesthetic and ace-level production toolbox: you produce, you shoot, you edit (GFX a huge plus). Must be a social media native—you've got an ear firmly to the ground, a great network of creatives and a desire to be part of the conversation.


The senior content creator will work closely with the VP of Brand and the Head of Video, taking ownership of a steady stream of scroll-stopping video content for social media that's helpful, thoughtful and fun. You will also contribute to our broadcast-quality content from pre-production through post.

We encourage the same of our employees and are committed to an environment of growth. The ability to work from MUD\WTR HQ in Venice, CA is available and encouraged. This is a full time contract position with opportunity to move to full time employment.


You will:

  • Report to the Head of Video and contribute to MUD\WTR's creative direction as we quickly expand
  • Consistently create video content for social media: tabletop product videos, testimonials, animations, human interest, moonshot crazy ideas, etc.
  • Respond to trends and be able to turn around short, punchy videos in a few hours
  • Assist the Head of Video in creating docuseries, editorial, comedy and instructional videos
  • Wear many hats as needed on set and in the office: producer, DP, audio, DIT, editor, etc.
  • Help create and manage the post-production workflow
  • Work with our growth team to shoot, edit and re-version ads
  • Activate your curiosity, life experience, interests and network to make content that you're proud of
