Core Digital Media is focused on empowering people to improve their lives financially. For the last 20+ years, our websites LowerMyBills, WalletJoy and PolicyPilot has been focused on helping people navigate the world of finances, providing them with savings and money-making opportunities through our relationships with service providers across mortgage, credit cards, loans, insurance, banking, home services and personal finance.
 
Core Digital Media is looking for a skilled video producer to develop engaging and informative personal finance videos for WalletJoy with occasional support for our other brands. This is a managerial role with one direct report to start. 

Responsibilities:

  • Develop video calendar, strategies, and roadmap to support evolving business needs in collaboration with stakeholders across Product, Design, Marketing, and Social.
  • Own the full scope of video content creation from ideation to budgeting to publishing and QA for the team, sourcing freelancers (if needed) and effectively delegating work.
  • Produce video assets from start to finish — think scriptwriting, storyboarding, filming, editing, voice overs, sourcing b-roll, etc.
  • Ensure all video assets produced adhere to brand, style, and quality standards and effectively bring clarity and context to personal finance decisions.
  • Manage and mentor your direct report through regular 1x1s, effective goal setting, professional development plans, and open feedback.
  • Track progress and measure impact of videos to inform your decision-making and recommendations for future planning and production.
  • Grow the breadth of video themes, types, and formats that the team can produce.
  • Stay on top of shifts in video trends and best practices to inform our KPIs, direction for videos, etc. 

The ideal candidate can:

  • Do it all — pitch, storyboard, write, shoot, edit — but knows how and when to prioritize and delegate to ensure the team hits production goals without sacrificing quality.
  • Build and implement effective solutions to challenges as they arise.
  • Distill complex financial topics into digestible, accessible takeaways for the viewer — and optimize for a variety of platforms and audiences.
  • Effectively and clearly communicate with all levels of the organization on all things video — from getting buy-in for new concepts to having crucial conversations when viewpoints don’t align.
  • Organize information from a variety of stakeholders to turn around high-impact video campaigns that drive key business results. 

Requirements:

  • At least 2 years of producing and video editing experience at a publisher, media organization, production studio, or similar for YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram
  • Experience owning video creation from start to finish, with a portfolio of your most relevant video projects to demonstrate what you can do. (Hint: Product demos, whiteboard explainer videos, educational how-to's are relevant. Commercials and films are not.)
  • Ability to effectively tell a compelling story via words, animation, graphics, and video
  • Proficiency using editing software such as Final Cut Pro X, Adobe After Effects or Adobe Premiere. 

Nice-to-haves:

  • Experience leading people and mentoring a team
  • Experience working with user-generated and influencer videos as well as TikTok and Snapchat
  • Experience and working knowledge of personal finance topics
  • Experience as on-air talent and comfortable hosting or starring in videos, should the need arise
  • An understanding of journalism best practices, SEO, and AP style 

What to do in order to apply:

  • Send your resume and cover letter. Be sure to include a link to your portfolio and direct us to at least 3 of your most relevant (to this job!) videos. (Hint: Ensure they are representative of projects you've taken lead on and driven from start to finish)

An Insider's view of Core Digital Media

What’s the vibe like in the office?

CDM is unique in that it exists in a competitive, fast-paced, ever-changing industry and still maintains its collaborative, nurturing community spirit. People are encouraged to think creatively and take risks; the result is a group of people invested in and energized by the work they do.

Chelsea Fusco

Online Marketing Manager - Team Lead

What does your typical day look like?

As Social Media Manager of WalletJoy, a typical day at work is never quite typical at all! With the startup nature of the brand and the current remote work situation – every day is different. My days are always filled with support from CDM, though. When you feel appreciated, it makes a difference. This company lives out the mantras they preach!

Nicole Musa

Social Marketing Manager

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I started as an entry-level Analyst & I am now a Director leading our CRM team. This is due to CDM's investment in my training & professional development. Leadership has always kept my best interests in mind, and has provided me with the tools needed to accomplish my goals. As a result, I have been able to succeed in ways I could not have imagined.

Megan Craven

Director of Marketing (CRM)

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

In Business Analytics, we are constantly tracking and analyzing the company’s performance and impacts of any strategy or business changes. We then summarize our findings into a clear and concise story to show current health of the business and make strategic recommendations. This applies to both day to day and long-term business decisions.

David Peet

Manager of Business Analytics

What projects are you most excited about?

Our continued re-architecting monolithic applications into Microservices. CI/CD is being re-imagined and actively worked upon including expanded Test Automation capabilities. Our front-end continues to get modernized by addition of new UI frameworks. After successful migration to AWS, we continue to explore building more cloud native applications.
