Brandlive, a top-tier brand and retailer platform for producing and hosting interactive live video events, is looking for a live-content producer and production coordinator role to facilitate live video streaming productions. The ideal person for this role has production experience in small and large scale events and clients, including special one-off events or recurring live-events.
If you have experience with producing high quality, multi-camera live video content, you are likely to be a good fit.

Some examples of what Brandlive does best are explainer and training videos, interviews with product experts, direct to consumer training as well as internal townhalls and seminars. Our productions vary with in-studio events, live-audience participation and trade show floors, meaning every production requires an ability to think on your feet and make it a seamless transition for your client in multiple production environments.
Great Brandlive producers have an understanding of brand and retail product training, marketing and e-commerce and the best workflow to showcase each event. Each Brandlive event has real-time interaction with the live and post-event viewers watching the event through the Brandlive Platform. Ability to understand both the production and software side of Brandlive is essential.
Travel is required for this position as well as a strong skill for departmental coordination scheduling, event travel, production equipment rentals and shipping for Brandlive Production Partners.
