Launched in 1994, VICE operates in 35 cities across the globe, making 1500 pieces of content every day. The company has five lines of business: VICE Digital, an award-winning international network of digital content; VICE STUDIOS, a feature film and television production studio; VICELAND, an Emmy-winning international television network; a Peabody award-winning NEWS division; and VIRTUE, a global, full-service creative agency with 26 offices around the world.</p>

<p><strong>VICE x News</strong></p>
<p>The award-winning VICE News team develops and produces news content across VICE platforms and partner platforms. The news team focuses on in-depth longform storytelling and unique and creative ways to relay topical daily news. This is a collaborative team that works together to make everyone’s stuff better. We believe in listening to everyone’s ideas and bringing on a diverse group of people who love working together to make the best, most unique news content out there.</p>

<p><strong>Role x You</strong></p>
<p>As a day-of-air crash Producer, you will turn daily pieces with the unique Vice angle and tone. You need to be a great writer and experienced in the full production of a piece.
