About the role

We need someone to edit 3 main styles of videos:

1. Talking head credit card videos (like this: https://youtube.com/watch?v=uVbEIexd744)

2. Mini-documentaries on interesting business stories (like this: https://youtube.com/watch?v=0qJKFJoWKvQ&t=141s)

3. Fun videos where we do cool things (like this: https://youtube.com/watch?v=7enLB7L4BFQ&t=3s)

We'll also be making short form content to be posted across several platforms.

We'll be providing most of the footage, but we expect you to find B-roll and stock footage.

We're looking to hire someone on a part-time/contract basis to edit up to 1 long form YouTube video per week for us, and possibly a couple shorts each day too.

We're hiring because we want to upgrade the quality of our content, so only apply if you're confident in your ability to deliver quality on par with the sample videos above.

Because this is a remote position, excellent communication is a must.

That being said, if we work well together and you're passionate about Pointwise, there's potential for equity and for the position to eventually become full-time.

About the interview

Interviewing for a video editing role at Pointwise

Thank you for taking the time to learn more about Pointwise’s interview process.

Here at Pointwise, we’re looking for editors who work quickly, take pride in their work, and are as excited about our mission as we are.

Our interview process is designed to find these kinds of editors. Moreover, we try to ask questions that are relevant to the types of content we publish -- a mix of long and short form content designed to resonate with large audiences and go viral.

Below is what to expect in our interview process. If you have questions, email us at ken@getpointwise.com.

Work Review

For the first step in our process, you’ll submit at least 1 sample of a long-form YouTube video you’ve recently edited. Make sure whatever you submit highlights most, if not all, of your abilities as an editor.

Founder Chat

If we’re impressed with the video sample you submitted, Ken will invite you to a quick chat over Zoom.

And that’s it! We’ll talk about next steps on the Zoom chat.

About Pointwise

What credit card should you get? With thousands of credit cards, each with their own unique sets of benefits and rules that affect everyone differently, the odds that you know which credit card you should get are close to 0.

Existing methods of finding a credit card, like reading online blogs or talking to your friend who knows more about credit cards than you do, are time-consuming and ineffective.

That's why Pointwise is changing how people get credit cards.

We analyze your spending (by connecting to your existing credit/debit cards) and preferences to tell you which credit cards to get and when, so you can get all the benefits credit card nerds get, but without the effort.
