<p><strong>Role x You</strong></p>
<p>Vice News is looking for an Associate Producer for the main newsroom in Brooklyn, NY. You must have a clear understanding of the Vice style of storytelling.

<p><strong>After 6 months in this role… </strong>excelling in all the tasks above, you’ll be asked to take on more responsibility, including opportunities to produce full pieces.</p>
<p><strong>And after a year.. </strong>You’ll have a real handle on our style and substance and will be regularly pitching stories that get greenlit and making them. </p>
<p><strong>You have these:</strong></p>
<ul>
<li>One year or more of experience in broadcast news,  documentary  film, or  other  digital media production -- or a similar level of experience in print or digital journalism</li>
<li>Collaborative working style, receptive to feedback and flexible</li>
<li>Deadline-driven, goal-oriented approach</li>
<li>Understand the fundamentals of news reporting</li>

<p><strong>We’d love if you also had these:</strong></p>
<ul>
<li>Fluency in another language</li>
<li>Able to develop and pitch unique story ideas and angles, with research to back it up </li>
<li>Able to shoot B cam</li>
</ul>
