The Senior Video Editor role


The Senior Video Editor has their fingerprints on almost everything on the A Cloud Guru platform. We're an online education platform teaching the world about cloud computing and all our courses and custom shows are delivered through video. Our Video Editors play a vital role in ensuring that all of the awesome content on our platform is consistently high quality, engaging and informative. One of our core values is "Keep it fun" so we're looking for a Video Editor who knows how to inject personality and humour and isn't afraid to try new things.

Motion graphics expertise is a must for this role as is the ability to manage creative projects from end-to-end. So if you are keen to work with the autonomy to create unique learning experiences, this is the role for you.  

Hello, we're A Cloud Guru

Our friends call us ACG.

A Cloud Guru was built by engineers for everyone, everywhere. Here, you’ll have the freedom to follow your curiosity. We’re not afraid to just try, because when you’re working with cutting edge technologies, experimentation and trying out new ideas have to be encouraged and celebrated. Everyone on our team genuinely cares about our students, the quality of their education, and what that can mean for their careers and their lives.

Our engineers are building the world’s largest (and most awesome) cloud learning platform. Why? Our mission is to teach the world to cloud. Our fun, practical courses have helped over 1.5 million people learn to cloud, and we’re just getting started.

What makes the Content Team awesome...

Who says learning something technical has to be a snooze? With a human touch, the world’s leading cloud gurus, and a few LEGO bricks, we’re giving people the skills they need to move up in their careers and change their lives… and having a bit of fun along the way.

Based on the latest learning techniques and infused with humor, our content is more than meets the eye, transforming novices into gurus faster than robots turn into semi trucks. To get our students on top of the cloud, we have to get there ourselves. We dedicate time each week to continued learning – from getting certs to brushing up on presentation skills.

  • Be the expert. You will be appreciated for upholding our content quality standards.
  • Be the advocate. Be the voice of our students and a sounding board for the company.
  • Be values driven. Work where people are valued, and we do right by our customers.
  • Change people's lives. Give people the education that helps them improve their lives.

If you’re motivated, energetic, a tinkerer, a thinker, an envelope-pusher, and just a wholesome, friendly people-person you’ll do well here. – Angela, Dancing Guru (and Community Content Development Director)

More than a job

Where you work isn’t just a career decision — it’s a life decision. We get it. That’s why we want all of our Gurus to feel a sense of belonging that comes from feeling supported in all areas of their lives. Everyone has family, friends and interests outside of their careers, so we offer perks and benefits to make work, work better for you.

  • 5 weeks paid time off. Whether it’s hiking to a waterfall or bonding with your couch, we all need time to unplug
  • Gender-neutral paid parental leave. We offer 8 weeks of gender-neutral paid parental leave
  • USD $250 quarterly education budget. All Gurus get USD $250 to spend on professional development every quarter
  • 2 hours each week reserved for learning. Every Friday for 2 hours, we put down our normal work and spend time learning something new
  • Salary Packaging. Our salary packaging benefit allows you to pay for certain everyday expenses, like your car lease or new laptop, with pre-tax dollars

What’s the interview process like at ACG?

Applying for a job can feel intimidating and like a full-time job of its own. You shouldn’t have to burn through a week of sick time or all your best out-of-office excuses just to put feelers out for a new career opportunity. We want to be as transparent about the process as possible to help ease your mind. It’s our goal to provide you a fair, efficient interviewing experience that respects you and your time — and to do it all with a sidecar of delight.

Once you submit an application, we’ll review it. If you’re a good fit, you’ll have an initial chat with a recruiter over the phone. A phone interview with a manager typically follows. Depending on your role, you might then be asked to do a little homework (but nothing too time consuming). Then we’ll schedule a Zoom call to meet other members of the team, answer any questions you have, and give you a feel for what it’s really like to work at ACG. If you're on the fence, just give it a try.

Keep being awesome, Cloud Gurus.
