Atlas Obscura is seeking a producer to support AO’s Brand Studios and Entertainment team and help bring a wide range of video projects to life this year. Reporting to the Executive Producer, the Supervising Producer will be responsible for providing creative and operational support at various stages of production - from conception to final delivery. The video producer will work closely with client-facing campaign producers as well as external production vendors to help keep the project running smoothly. If you pride yourself on being an operational wizard as well as a creative powerhouse with experience producing branded videos at various scales - we’re looking for you.

Founded in 2008, Atlas Obscura recently completed a $20 million Series B funding round led by Airbnb and is growing rapidly. At its core, Atlas Obscura believes in surfacing magic and wonder, and we seek to bring that very spirit of magic and wonder to the work we do with brands, which have included Chase, Nissan, Mitsubishi, and more.
