Merit is hiring a

Video Production Contractor

Cary, United States
At Merit, we believe the world would get bigger if you didn’t always have to prove the trusted credentials you’ve earned. Merit has built the interoperable digital credentials ecosystem that bridges data and trust gaps between and among government, companies, organizations, and individuals. This uniquely helps those trusted organizations deliver on the promises they’ve made to individuals struggling to maximize the credentials they’ve earned, and helps create more opportunities for everyone.

We are looking for a video production fellow to help us develop new videos to capture Merit’s story and vision. This fellow will own video projects from inception to final delivery working with the marketing, design, and product teams. The role will require planning, shooting, editing, and uploading video content. Ability to write scripts is a plus, as the role will require partnership with other writers.

If you are creatively minded and extremely comfortable with both the project management aspects (vendor management, scheduling, etc.) and technical aspects of video production (shooting, editing, post-production), this is the role for you.

Merit is a startup environment where you will be expected to roll up your sleeves, take initiative, and get creative about finding solutions to challenges. This is a remote position.

  • Develop and evolve Merit’s brand across video assets.


  • Experience in video production and editing, ideally across a wide range of content types.
  • Strong communication skills, as you’ll be working with creatives, technical people, and non-technical people alike.
