Tasks: Edit and upload one long (15 min) and one short (1 min) video per week. We like to keep it simple. You will be working with one or maximum 2 video files per finished video (no complicated splicing of multiple files or trying to figure out what goes where).

— Stay consistent from video to video, using the same editing style and fonts
— Follow simple directions (ie. please add logo to video)
— Have good communication skills and ability to check in online frequently
— Have your own computer/laptop
— Have your own editing software
— Have a reliable, fast internet connection

Preferred qualities — not necessary, but bonuses:
— Have experience creating / editing video for YouTube
— Be interested in language learning

This IS probably a good fit for you IF:
— You want a fun, meaningful part-time job
— You’ve done some editing before, either for fun or professionally
— You want to work with an energetic, female small business owner
— You’ve taken a look at our youtube channel (Go Natural English) and like the concept
— You love video editing!

This is probably NOT a good fit for you IF:
— You are looking for a full-time job
— You are not ok with the pay rate mentioned
— You’ve never edited videos before
— You have trouble communicating in a timely manner and meeting deadlines

Pay: $20-30 per finished video. Typically you would be editing less than 20 minutes of raw video into (A) 15 minutes of finished video and editing that into (B) a 1-minute version for social media.

This is a part-time, at-will contractor position (1099) paid on a monthly basis for the number of videos completed.

We will be using Slack, Hootsuite, Dropbox and Google Docs to manage the work.

This role exists so that we can spend more time growing the business and reaching out for new potential business opportunities.
