Video Editor (project-based)

Los Angeles, CA, United States Full Time
PowerToFly approved because…

BuzzFeed literally helped PowerToFly get off the ground. They were one of our first hiring partners when we launched about four years ago. On top of that, their executives backed us as angel investors. Both Jonah Peretti, BuzzFeed's Founder and CEO, and Greg Coleman, BuzzFeed's President, wrote checks to turn our dream into a reality (and they continue to advise our founders, an unmeasurable value). We also got significant seed funding from two of BuzzFeed's board members - Ken Lerer and Eric Hippeau.

Needless to say, BuzzFeed is completely invested in making PowerToFly a success, and that means hiring more women through the platform. BuzzFeed has certainly done that. Countless women have been hired by BuzzFeed through PowerToFly like Paola Matta who started out as an English Major before writing code.
