Red Hat Hiring

This is a great company, local to Raleigh and just off of Centennial Campus. They hire a lot of former NC State University students from the College of Design as well as the College of Management. This sounds like a good opportunity to work with their marketing and creative services department. Good luck, enjoy the rest of summer. More information after the jump…

Position Summary:
The Red Hat Brand Communications + Design group is the face and voice
of the Red Hat brand. We are currently seeking a Senior Video Editor to
help us design media experiences across the company that are authentic
to Red Hat.

You’ll be working with a small group of very high energy, dedicated,
and collaborative designers, editors, and motion artists that will do
anything for a project to succeed. A strong understanding of technology

is not required, but the ability to tell stories for a technology
company is a must. Storytelling is what this group is all about and
it’s what keeps us going, even when we are given very demanding jobs.

File management and organizational abilities are as much of a factor as
creativity and becoming part of our group relies on many factors – we
constantly rethink the way we do things and try to mix things us as
often as possible. We’re seeking someone that will look at projects
with a new perspective each time and who will not be afraid to learn new
styles and new ways of doing things. There’s no stagnation here!

– Bachelor’s Degree in graphic design, interaction design, film
studies,
psychology, anthropology or another field we haven’t thought of that
you
can justify as being useful to creating authentic brand experiences

– At least 2 years of experience applying the core principles of your
field in a corporate environment

– Deep understanding of current video techniques, software, and the
organization of assets

In addition, we really value:

– Training and or experience in brand building and marketing
communications

– A love of film, be it animation, silent-era, avant-garde, french new

wave, or action (there are a few of us that really love some new wave,

though)

– Understanding of open source and how to tell the Red Hat

– Experience working in a creative, collaborative, and very open
environment

– A strong service orientation, and experience managing relationships
with external or internal clients

– Exceptional verbal, written, and visual communications skills

– The ability to act independently with little direction. And thrive in

a fast-paced, collaborative environment with multiple projects and
priorities that change often
