Overview

Who you are: Are you an experienced producer who can pitch projects to clients in your sleep? Are you as comfortable scaling production as you are managing projects (from kick-off to final cut)? Spiceworks wants you! We’re casting our latest role for a Video Producer to helm projects for Spiceworks Studios, our award-winning in-house video team. If you’ve got leadership chops, know-how to manage every facet of a video project, and can keep a dozen plates spinning, you just might be the latest addition to our epic video team.

 

Top tech companies look to Spiceworks to create unique commercials, overviews, testimonials, and how-to videos for them. On track to produce over 150 videos this year alone, we’re looking for someone who can handle both client and internal videos from pitch to post-production with crews ranging from 3 to 30. You’ll build upon the celebrated reputation we’ve won in the tech video space as you help scale our existing rev gen production calendar. Think you’ve got what it takes? Auditions have begun!

 

Who we are: Launched in 2006, Spiceworks is an Austin-based company that’s shaking up the tech space and transforming how products (hardware, software, and IT services) are marketed and sold to millions of IT professionals around the world. Thousands of tech brands (including Microsoft, Dell, HPE/HPI and Rackspace) use Spiceworks to reach and connect with these IT pros. Historically a tough market to reach, vendors love the unique ways Spiceworks helps them connect with this elusive market… so much so thatForbes touted us “the future of media.”
