We are looking for a talented Video Editor to take raw online course materials (audio recordings, slide decks, greenscreen recordings, intro animations, etc.) from our online course projects and assemble into finalized videos suitable for publication in a professional online course.
Main goal: Bring sight and sound together in order to help us create an experience that is engaging, interesting, educational, and professional, as we do with all our courses.
To see some examples of the course videos we’ve created from different projects: http://monetizemyexpertise.com/project-samples
We think about Video Editor’s abilities in terms of 3 levels:
Beginner level editor
When you go to http://monetizemyexpertise.com/project-samples and look at the sample videos that include just voiceover on top of the slides, and that’s it. Nothing crazy or fancy. This just involves syncing audio produced by the client with the relevant slides, and doing some basic post-production steps to eliminate mistakes, level out the audio levels, and other basic steps to improve the quality of the output file.
Intermediate level editor:
Can do everything described above, as well as being able to create a video like this: https://monetizeyourexpertise.wistia.com/medias/fzy52tikwu. It includes additional types of elements (like live recordings of the client, an animated intro created in after effects / adobe premiere) and is all combined in a flawless demo video.
Advanced level editor:
Can do everything described above, as well as being able to create a video like this: https://monetizeyourexpertise.wistia.com/medias/adhethxqu7 - this was an animated prom video which we’ve only ever needed to do once or twice because of the amount of additional work it takes to create those custom infographic style animations, because it costs more and is overkill usually, but would be good to know if this is an option if it’s something you can do. Not sure which platform this was built through, but I can find out.
$300 USD - $550 USD per project (basic-level editing)
$500 USD - $850 USD per project (intermediate-level editing)

“Working with MYE has been a great experience. Not only do I get to work from home and on my own time–which has also taught me a lot of self-motivation and time management–but I’ve also learned what it’s like to start your own business, and how to best go about it. Grant’s also super kind, flexible, and he helps/teaches you as much as possible so that you get as much out of the experience as possible.”
“I absolutely love, love, love working with you...We do have an amazing team and you are an incredible leader.
It's impossible not to like working here. You are the best! :)”
Monetize Your Expertise (aka MYE) is an innovating eLearning Company that services as an outsourced eLearning department for industry leaders and companies the world over. We create online courses / training for organizations, through a proprietary process that our company developed, in a way that creates a world-class end product with us doing all of the heavy lifting for the client. Everyone is aware of the educational revolution that is beginning to take hold - universities are closing and going online. Business are starting to understand the value of educational marketing, but end up wasting 12 months just to ultimate hack something together that they (and their customers) just end up feeling ashamed of.
Clients come to us, instead of running in circles for 6-12 months or more, trying to figure out how to go about this whole online education thing, and do it well, before just throwing their hands up. When they work with us, they can be confident in the quality of the final product, and are able to get all the excited of growing their business using online courses, with us taking care of what would have been the massive headache to them to figure out how to actually go about it!
You can learn more about our background and what we do
All our clients have to do is show up on a series of interview-based content development calls with us, and then later in the process they take a few hours to record the audio from an outline we provide to them, and we do the rest - before, during, in between and after. We do all the work outlining their course, incorporating any other materials they might have, creating slides, worksheets, quizzes and more, editing the videos into a finished course, setting it all up onto a learning management system (LMS) and marketing the course to generate revenue for them.
1. WORK WITH AN INNOVATIVE, FAST-GROWING BUSINESS
This position is a great opportunity to get the “behind the scenes” look inside a fast-growing business, that is an industry leader in the educational revolution, with a world-class team.
2. WORK AUTONOMOUSLY
If you can deliver on expectations, you will have ample opportunity to work on your own terms (as long as you continuously deliver results)
3. MASSIVE LEARNING OPPORTUNITY
Plenty of training available. If you’re interested in getting your hands into other parts of the business, we're happy to help you develop new skills.
In fact, we have access to an entire massive library of courses from past projects that you can learn from (upwards of $50,000 worth of courses that you will get access to).
4. ROOM FOR GROWTH
For a qualified individual, there is room for growth in the company.
If your primary focus is getting this position just to make money, then this probably isn’t a great fit (there are certainly faster and easier ways to make a quick buck - it's more about happiness, impact and doing something great).
However, if you are interested in learning a ton, doing great work, working with super cool people and serving extremely interesting and varied clients (while also being compensated), then this is for you.
We are a team of people who all deeply care about doing good work, helping each other, and helping our clients. The work style of the team is pretty independent - we make sure everyone has what they need to do a great job and then everyone goes off and does deep work.
MYE doesn't try to grow as fast as possible, or make as much money as possible, or slave-drive employees. We value growth and learning and well-rounded life. You can work in the way that is best for you, as long as you produce amazing results for our clients.
The most important thing - this isn't just a job. We want the right person to become part of our “work family”. You are becoming part of the "team" for our company. This means that we don't want someone to just clock in and clock out, and do the bare minimum just to get paid. We need you to actually care about what we do as a company, want to help us grow and improve. And in return we will trust you, provide you the best working environment you’ve ever had, and invest in you.
If you will be excited to do the work, bringing with you tons of ideas for how the company can grow and do better... if you're pumped to think about where we are headed as a company, and seeing this opportunity as an investment in growing something greater than yourself, then you are our type of person.
