• 5+ years of online editing experience at a studio, network or post production facility.
• Extensive knowledge of Resolve, Avid Media Composer, and Adobe Premiere Pro.
• Extensive knowledge of codecs, image types, file formats, resolutions and frame rates.
• Excellent collaboration and communication skills as well as juggling competing priorities and changing expectations.
• Knowledge and interest in current trends in video and post-production technology.
