Blue Chalk Media is a nonfiction production company based in Portland, OR, & Brooklyn, NY. We are growing our post-production team and are on the hunt for an Associate Editor to join us. This role would be based out of our Portland, OR, office. We are looking for someone who thrives when faced with technical challenges — someone who loves a good proxy, laughs in the face of 8K footage, and truly enjoys firmware upgrades. Most importantly, we are seeking someone who does it with a smile.

Blue Chalk Media is an equal opportunity employer committed to an inclusive workplace. We do not tolerate sexual harassment or discrimination based on race, color, religion, gender identity, age, national origin, veteran status or disability. We believe that our differences make us stronger and that working together with respect for each individual is essential to the success of our company as a whole.
