WGBH Digital is seeking a Senior Digital Producer to lead the digital editorial effort for an exciting new political affairs series that will integrate digital tools into a live broadcast in a ground-breaking way.
You are an experienced digital producer looking to serve as the creative champion and digital lead on a re-invention of the traditional public affairs show. Working with a TV executive producer, host, nationally-recognized guests and your digital team, you will lead the creative use of a new suite of highly social interactive tools being built exclusively for a new immersive digital television experience.
An organizer and a connector, you love working with teams and know when to take the lead and when to play a supporting role to help others perform their best. You will be expected to collaborate closely with product managers, designers and developers to envision and execute on a bold digital suite connected with this innovative show. You are both hands-on and able to think strategically, driving content development within the show’s digital tools.
The ideal candidate for this position will have 8+ years of experience, with at least 4 years as senior lead, in a variety of integrated interactive projects with a focus on products that push creative and technological limits. The ideal candidate also will be comfortable driving social media interaction with the projects he or she works on, and finding creative ways to develop and encourage short form video related to your projects. While we’re hiring for this specific role, there will be additional opportunities on other projects in development so experience producing for a range of content genres (scripted, lifestyle, documentary) for a general audience, while not required, is highly desirable.
