NBC recently launched a new digital-first team of reporters, filmmakers, animators, tinkerers and video journalists tasked with rethinking what video news and features could and should look like in 2017.

NBC Left Field is an independent, off-site division of NBC News aimed at creating experiential visual journalism, using cinematic storytelling to drop viewers inside the minds and bodies of our subjects.

Our aim is to push boundaries in video by toying with technology, leveraging social platforms, employing smart design and using our combined decades of experience to push a new form of video storytelling.

This person will work closely with the executive producer of the unit to implement editorial strategy and design—aimed at an increasingly mobile-first audience.

You should be chopping at the bit to innovate and capable of providing the encouragement and sharp editorial judgment required to help lead a team of globe-trotting video journalists crafting features as well as hard-hitting documentaries.

You should come armed with years of experience constructing edits and offering notes on videos pouring in from the field. The ideal candidate will be passionate about delivering content for social platforms and have a myriad of ideas on how to leverage emerging technologies—from live social video to mixed reality.
