Multimedia Producer - HBP Beta Job Description:
The Product Incubator at Harvard Business Publishing is launching an HBP Beta Content Lab,
and is looking for a creative, ambitious, and energetic multimedia producer to join the pioneer
team. The goal of the Content Lab is to research, experiment, and develop new digital content
formats and grow new audiences for the Harvard Business Review, Corporate Learning, and
Higher Education business units of Harvard Business Publishing.

Do you have an exceedingly good sense of what kind of video connects with a digital-savvy
audience, what it takes to be engaging, and fresh ideas on how to market that content? Keep
reading.

The right person will not only be technically proficient, but also have a strong artistic vision and
is willing to take creative risks. You should have strong collaboration skills and can own a

The HBP Beta Multimedia Producer will work within the Incubator (with regular collaboration

Think formats like: short-form, vertical, interactive, serial, or GIFs. Think channels like: Reddit.
TikTok. Twitch. YouTube. Slack. WhatsApp. WeChat. Pinterest. Plus whatever else might be
invented between now and tomorrow. You are on an intrepid team to research and understand
new platforms and content formats, and to see where (and how) HBP can contribute
constructively and creatively.

The Content Lab will be highly collaborative, and the Multimedia Editor will work closely with
other editors, video producers, and content creators.

Applications must include a link to a portfolio.

Job responsibilities:
- Research potential approaches, produce multimedia content, and experiment with
emerging platforms and content formats
- Develop and implement creative, innovative, visual storytelling techniques
- Thoughtfully evolve HBR brand look/feel when serving new audiences

publishing/distribution
- Fluency in Premiere or other editing software
