  • A hunger to grow: You’ll be looking to learn a lot & quickly.  You aren’t afraid to try things & make mistakes because you know that failing is the best way to learn. 
And things you’ll do as part of the job will include:
  • Building and managing the processes and schedule for the production of all content for Spire’s innovative online learning experiences.
  • Coordinating production activities across a range of people, from internal Spire experts to managers and leaders at Spire’s partner companies.
  • Running video production processes end to end; getting a brief, storyboarding, running pre-production meetings, pitching for resources, filming and post-production.
