Job Description

The New York Times Video unit is expanding its Opinion brand. With Adam Ellick at the helm of the team, we’re developing a new kind of journalistic commentary that will explore the most divisive and defining issues of the day. We want to engage our audience in rich debate using emotion, humor, tension, controversy, and creativity. Our goal is to make videos that inform, shape, provoke and challenge the perspectives of our audience.


A video editor who can edit both short commentary videos connected to the daily news cycle, and opinionated feature projects often in collaboration with outside producers. This editor will be expected to consistently bring fresh ideas and to execute those stories both internally and with outside contributors and producers. Please send us portfolio samples as well as a memo as to why you would be a good fit for the Opinion video team.


To Apply

Applicants should submit their resumes, work portfolio, and a memo outlining their ideas. Memos should include specific ideas for how we invent Opinion video at The New York Times. Please address these questions:

  • Describe your vision for how we should invent Opinion video at The Times.
  • What role should video play in making The Times’s Opinion section more relevant in our audience?
  • How will we distinguish our voices from the cacophony of voices across many platforms and outlets?
  • Which subjects should Opinion focus on, and how would you approach all aspects of one of those subjects?
  • What categories of work — provide specific stories and examples from other outlets — do you think stand out?
