First off, this description is a wishlist, not a checklist. We want to find a super-amazing person to join our team, and we’re well aware that “super-amazing” can come in all different forms. If you’re a little less experienced on a specific bullet point, or if you didn’t go to a fancy school, apply anyway. We look at candidates, not resumes.
About the Role
Standard is looking for a New York-based Production Coordinator to support our Nebula Classes production team. “Nebula Classes” is a new offering where creators deliver fun, informative and visually-arresting lessons on a variety of subjects. The ideal candidate will have experience in short-form digital content, and longer-form projects. The successful candidate has experience in production, particularly prep and on-set needs and etiquette. This person should be enthusiastic about jumping in wherever needed, knowing that production is fast-paced and changes on a dime. The candidate should be highly-organized, a forward-thinker, resourceful, and have deep passion for supporting the way a project moves from inception through delivery. Passion for education-ish content is a plus!
- Work closely with New York-based Classes Director + remote creative team to support the vision and logistics for each class (prep, production and post)

- Post-production: data management, including offloading storage cards to solid state drives and servers; create proxies; sync all audio and video footage in Adobe Premiere Pro; create multi-cam sequences, render videos; assist in footage assembly
- Provide administrative support, including submitting expense receipts, updating the studio calendar, and attending status meetings.
- Execute guest travel; send out itineraries to talent and creative team
- Anticipate and communicate issues to leadership to reach solutions in a timely manner
- Collaborate on projects by conducting research, writing and fact-checking
- Spotting broll for placement in scripts
- Perform special projects, as needed
What We’re Looking For
- At least 2+ years of video production / post-production experience
- Proficient working knowledge of Adobe Premiere Pro

- Ability to work evenings and occasional weekends, sometimes on short notice
Pay & Perks
- Competitive salary starting at $60,000 per year
- Flexible work hours and vacation policy
- Diverse, socially-minded team of nice people
- Medical, dental, and vision plans (for US-based employees)
- 401(k) and other benefits
- You’ll get to work with some of the best creators on YouTube
Standard is a sort of talent management agency and production company for thoughtful YouTubers and podcasters. We do a lot of things, so it’s hard to explain it all in a single paragraph, but our mission is to empower independent creators. Most of our time is spent talking or working with the creators directly, one on one or in a group, coming up with better tools and toys for them.
We’re a distributed company. We have offices in NYC and Denver, but more than 50% of the team is remote, in exotic locations like the UK, the Netherlands, France, and Ohio.
Because we’re distributed and because most of our tasks aren’t immediately time-sensitive we don’t really have operating hours, per se. There are things to do and meetings to be had, but we pride ourselves on our flexibility. We think this makes Standard a great place to work for people with families, or whose productive hours tend to be outside of the 9-5. We care about what you do more than when you do it.
How We Hire
We think that diversity is important. Many of us have non-traditional backgrounds. We work in the online education space, so we understand how much can be learned on your own, on the Internet, outside of a classroom.
We’re looking for people who are curious and passionate. Our team should be made up of people of all sorts of colors, genders, and sizes, who can help to expand our perspective and improve our ability to treat our creators and our audience with thoughtfulness and empathy.
If that sounds like you, we’re happy to care less how many years of experience you have or where you went to school. Apply anyway. And if you have any feedback on how we could reach or appeal to a more diverse pool of talent, get in touch.
Send an email to [email protected] and include:
- The position.
- What excited you about the role.
- Your resume, obviously.
- Links to relevant work available online (github, etc).
- A note or two about your interests outside of work. This is usually more interesting than the resume part.
