Video Editor (Avatar Specialist)

👋 TL;DR: we're looking for an Avatar Specialist to help with the post-production processing of our AI avatars

Who are we?

On a mission to make video easy for anyone …

Synthesia is the world’s #1 AI video generation platform. Well, it’s actually a video production studio — in a browser. As in, no cameras or film crews at all. You simply choose an avatar, enter your script in one of 120 languages, and your video is ready in minutes. In Synthesia, you can build personalised on-the-fly videos, give your chatbot a human face or run 24/7 weather channels in different languages, to name just a few of the possibilities. 🎬

We believe the future of media is synthetic, and we are on a mission to turn cameras into code and make everyone a creator.

Not sure what we’re talking about? Check out our brand video that explains what we’re doing at Synthesia in a way that even our grandparents *kind of * understand what this AI video stuff is all about.

And yet we are just laying the groundwork for a whole new kind of media here. Imagine joining Uber, Airbnb or Stripe when these companies were just getting started.

That's how early we are – but enough about us now.

Right now, we’re hiring an Avatar Specialist to work in a technical post-production role. Our avatars form a crucial component of our business and you’ll play an important role in ensuring the avatars we create are truly world-class. You'll leverage your skills in editing, grading, and keying videos to help us deliver the avatars found within our platform.

You can continue to read or let Alex here tell you the summary. And yes, the avatar found in this video is an example of the type of avatar you’d be working on.

As a Avatar Specialist at Synthesia, you’ll:

  • Focus on the post-production process for our avatars.
  • Utilise your skills in editing, grading, keying and delivery of videos for avatar creation.
  • Process avatar footage through our unique pipeline.
  • Lead the quality assessment of our avatars at the conclusion of the creation process.
  • Partner with our customer support teams as we deliver avatar footage for our customers.
  • Organize and manage post-production assets, including footage, sound files, graphics, and visual effects elements.
  • Ensure timely delivery of edited and finalized content, meeting project specifications and client expectations.
  • Maintain a high level of attention to detail and quality control throughout the post-production process.
  • Work in DaVinci Resolve and other relevant post-production tools to deliver world-class avatars.
  • Occasionally you’ll enter data for our external data annotation workflows.

You should apply if you bring:

  • Proficiency in editing software, particularly DaVinci Resolve, and other relevant post-production tools.
  • Experience in color grading, keying, and other post-production techniques.
  • A desire to work in a technical post-production role as this is not a creative video editing position.
  • Excellent attention to detail and commitment to quality control.
  • Good communication skills to effectively collaborate with the post-production team and other stakeholders.
  • Ability to work well under pressure and meet tight deadlines.
  • Strong problem-solving abilities and a proactive approach to resolving issues.
  • Interest in AI and Generative Media.

At Synthesia we expect everyone to:

  • Be an owner.
  • Focus on outcomes over inputs and plans.
  • Make the journey fun
  • Default to simple.
