Tellwell is a storytelling and content creation marketing firm that creates emotional connections with audiences by sharing authentic stories of great organizations. We believe that story is the most powerful way to introduce an organization’s brand, educate and engage their audiences, and remind those audiences why they love the brand. Our ultimate goal is to help organizations tell their stories through engaging video, actionable writing, beautiful design, and fantastic web experiences that drive action while also building one of the best companies to work for in the Midwest!
We’re a small team with fun clients, big vision, and aspirations to stay small and hit above our weight class.
We’re looking for a video producer and editor (with motion graphics experience) — someone with an eye for shots, a knack for pulling stories from interviews, and the skills to create and tell authentic stories.
You deliver beautiful footage and films, and love to nerd out about new ideas and equipment. You’re passionate about spreading the story and helping mission-driven organizations navigate new landscapes. You know that when your Tribe wins, you win. As a member of the video team with Team Tellwell, you help lead the charge for creating compelling visual content, will work with clients who have strong values and missions.
As a video producer, you will continue honing your craft in filmmaking and refine your storytelling abilities. You also have a strong affinity with the Tellwell brand and company culture, and believe in Tellwell's goals and future growth. It is your responsibility to help cultivate that enthusiasm in your creative team.
