Are you an upbeat videographer that prefers to take the camera out of ‘auto’ mode? If so you may be a great fit to work as an extension of our team as a contract videographer.
We believe wholeheartedly that the drudgery of weeding through medical articles for hours on end is one of the single biggest barriers to people finding true lasting relief from complex chronic problems — we know this because we’ve lived it. We believe finding a clear and actionable solution should not be as painful as the condition itself.
That’s why we’re on a mission to retire those dusty old medical articles and make understanding chronic health problems easy and enjoyable through the use of video. By taking complex topics and distilling them down into easy to understand, bite sized videos that fit into people’s busy lives we’re saving our audience hundreds of hours in research and trial and error. And when dealing with a chronic condition, there is nothing more precious than time.
To be successful as a videographer with our vendors must be professional, polite, and attentive while also being accurate. They should always be prepared and responsive, willing to adapt when faced with challenging scenarios. Videographers must be comfortable with people, excelling at both verbal and written communication.
If you feel that describes you and that you can get behind impacting people’s lives in a positive way, then we encourage you to keep reading.
