Job Description

Position Description

The lead videographer lights and shoots a broad range of retailer training videos, product stories, and brand content, working closely with marketing and design teams to make the Trek brand look and feel amazing.

You understand lifestyle brands. You’re focused on the big picture but have a great eye for detail. You are independent and driven, work fast, and can handle multiple projects at once. You roll with the punches on tricky shoots and under tight deadlines. You’re at home in the studio, but can shine in the field when needed. You’re a skilled craftsman behind the camera and in front of the computer. You thrive on collaboration with in-house and outside parties but can fly solo when the project requires. You’re always pushing for improvements and innovations in the work and the process.

Please include a reel or portfolio of work to be considered for this position.
