Role Overview

As the cryptocurrency media platform with the most extensive reach in the industry, our community of millions is one of our biggest strengths.

We’re looking for someone to engage with that creative, inspired, tech-savvy, financially-literate, fiercely independent, always curious community.

The ideal candidate will have experience in the concepting and production of short and long-form video content.

We are looking for an individual who can bring fresh ideas to the table, juggle multiple projects at a time, and feel comfortable experimenting with new forms of visual storytelling. The creative director will work closely with the video team to produce original visual content.
