Who We Are

We’re 522, and we’re on a mission to rid the world of cheesy videos. Behind every pixel we create exists an incredibly talented, highly motivated team relentlessly committed to producing incredible video content that elevates our clients’ brand.

About You

You're a digital creative who specializes in editing videos in Adobe Premiere. Whether you're cutting a 30 second narrative commercial or a 12-minute branded documentary, you understand that story is everything. You use subtle tweaks to pace and tone to keep viewers engaged and drive them to take action. You know that effective editors keep things tidy, and you hold a grudge when you see offline media is sitting in someone else's downloads folder. Multicam sequences, the lumetri panel, captioning tools, and After Effects pre-comps don't send you into a tizzy. Most importantly, you're an effective and upbeat collaborator across multiple rounds of revisions with 522 and our clients.

Applications must include a link to a portfolio of recent and relevant videos. Applications without a portfolio will not be considered. Direct links to Google Drive or Dropbox also will not be considered.

With 522, you will:

    • Work directly with our creative directors and project managers in our Alexandria, VA office.
    • Edit videos in Adobe Premiere and After Effects.
    • Take projects from raw footage to completion with minimal hand-holding.
    • Implement feedback from 522 and our clients during in-person workshops and through written notes.
    • Navigate 522's stock music, video, and photo libraries to select assets that meet concept and brand requirements.
    • Proof all video deliverables twice for good measure and maintain impeccably-organized project files.
