Multimedia Producer

You: A producer. A producer is both a project’s artistic driver and its motor. You set the creative vision for a project and then realize it—dodging, dominating, and defusing any obstacles in your path. To that end, you are self-aware about your strengths and weaknesses and augment your talents with external contractors who can help you to make the best creative possible. You love to see ideas come to life.

Them: Bureaucrats, city councils, mayors, governors, and federal agencies stripping Americans of their rights every day. There’s a lot of government overreach out there.

Us: We fight back. Pacific Legal Foundation is the nation’s first and most successful public interest law firm dedicated to vindicating individual liberty.

PLF has an unmatched record, with 12 victories out of 14 cases heard by the United States Supreme Court. We also have more than a hundred active cases across the nation. (Read: we have more than 100 active human stories we can amplify.)

We are a next-generation public interest law firm. What does “next generation” mean for a legal nonprofit? It means we aren’t interested in doing the same thing as everyone else. We aspire to be the best player in a constantly changing game.

Here’s what you get to do in this role:

80% Content Production

  • Produce educational YouTube videos, from conception to completion, that capitalize on current events, pop culture, and Google search trends
  • Produce a biweekly podcast about the Supreme Court—including reviewing scripts, coordinating logistics, and overseeing recording
  • Direct photo shoots for PLF’s print and digital publications, ensuring every photo tells a story (travel not required)
  • Work with PLF’s creative director and manager on storytelling and scripting for all these projects
  • Oversee vendors providing the technical expertise and support for all the above projects
  • Support other members of the content team by participating in brainstorms and reviewing creative
  • Master PLF’s swashbuckling brand: Honorable, Daring, Smart, Irreverent

20% Distribution

  • Strategize video and podcast releases, coordinating between relevant colleagues who can provide SEO optimization, paid advertising, editorial and social media promotion, and events and screenings
  • Use responsible data management practices to store and share all assets in the cloud

This role is ideal for someone with at least three years of experience in a production or content marketing role. Technical skills aren’t required. Curiosity, humility, follow-through, and a commitment to excellence are a must—bonus points for a good sense of humor.
