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 writer who specializes in writing impactful scripts for online video. Armed with just a factsheet, word count, and target audience, you write sharp, effective scripts that keep viewers informed and engaged. Your background in creative, technical, or screenwriting allows you to form the foundation of an effective video message whether you're working on a 2-minute explainer, a 60-second brand anthem, or a 6-minute narrative. Simply executing someone else's idea isn't enough–you want to be an active contributor to the creative approach. You've seen the pitfalls of key-messaging-by-committee, so you know how to navigate complex stakeholder interests to develop scripts that remain fundamentally human. 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 you've scripted. Applications without a portfolio will not be considered.

With 522, you will:

    • Work remotely with our creative directors and project managers to draft scripts that help organizations, processes, or products stand out in the noisy world of online video.
    • Speak authentically to a wide variety of audiences, brands, and industries.
    • Create scripts that work in concert with an established visual approach.
    • Deliver copy that's meticulously edited and precisely crafted, with minimal hand-holding.
    • Stay organized and meet strict deadlines that, for a thousand different reasons, only seem to be getting tighter.
What's Next?

Bringing the right people onto our team is one of our most important responsibilities. Our interview process, particularly for full-time work, may consist of multiple rounds of phone, video, and in-person interviews. We take our time to make sure the process is done right. We'll do our best to respond to each applicant, but please know that we appreciate your interest even if a position with us isn't an immediate fit.

If you want to be a big part of a growing business, if you want a team environment to collaborate on creative ideas, if you want to take the next step in your career–come talk to us.

At 522 Productions, we're made stronger by working with people with a diverse set of backgrounds and perspectives. We're an equal opportunity employer and we're committed to providing reasonable accommodations to any applicant or employee with a disability.
