Creative Producer

| Chicago

We here at Jellyvision are the proud parents of ALEX®, an interactive employee communications platform that happens to share some DNA (and a sense of humor) with the smash-hit trivia video game YOU DON’T KNOW JACK®, created by Jellyvision's founder. ALEX makes navigating tricky decisions—like choosing and using employee benefits or improving your financial wellness—easier, faster, and more helpful, not to mention entertaining. The success of the ALEX platform has exceeded our wildest dreams, (except for the part right before we woke up where our mom was riding a giraffe), which is why we need talented folks like you to help us help ALEX take over the world…er…continue to grow and succeed.
 

THAT’S LOVELY, BUT WHAT’S THE JOB?

As a Creative Producer, you’ll have the distinct honor of both bringing our content to life and supporting the ALEX and Jellyvision brands through live-action video, motion graphics, animation, and still photography. You’ll work with our talented team of Creative Directors, Writers, Artists, Sound Designers, Project Managers, Product Managers, and others to create work that knocks the socks off of your colleagues, our customers, and our end users. Your expertise will be put to use from the earliest stages of concept generation and pre-production, all the way through to production and delivery.
 

What are the day-to-day responsibilities?

  • Participating in concept generation as part of a cross-functional team
  • Forming production plans (shoot schedules, breakdowns, shot lists, etc.)
  • Preparing production resources (equipment, props, locations, people, digital assets, etc.)
  • Owning all aspects of physical production and being the go-to person with questions about a given video or photography shoot
  • Editing live-action videos and animating videos based on scripts and storyboards
  • Driving production and ensuring on-time delivery by clearly communicating project status and needs
  • Shooting and retouching Jellyvision employee, office space, and select event photos
  • Maintaining a clean, organized, and functional studio space

 

What skills must one possess to be a most excellent Creative Producer?

  • Have video production experience. You should be familiar with production equipment (DSLRs, lighting, etc), studio and location directing, and shooting.
  • Have post-production chops. You should be an expert in Adobe Premiere and After Effects, and comfortable with other Adobe CC products like Illustrator, Photoshop, and Lightroom.
  • Be a strong storyteller. You’ll bring our creative vision to life with an emphasis on clarity and user perspective.
  • Have great creative judgment. You’ll need to know funny, polished, clever, and clear when you see it. When you don’t see it, you’ll need to know how to get to it.
  • Be tech savvy. Data-driven products delivered at scale are central to what we do, so you must be willing to learn about and work on cutting-edge dynamically-created videos.
  • Pay outrageous attention to detail. You must be detail-oriented with regards to timing, text placement, and overall ease of understanding.
  • Have a strong work ethic, organizational skills, and a mind for deadlines. You must possess amazing time management skills and the ability to produce high-quality work under deadline constraints.
  • Possess outstanding written and verbal communication and listening skills. The ability to give and take direction positively and constructively is key to what we do.
  • Be a collaborative contributor. To be a Creative Producer, it’s important to work well with an interdependent team.
  • Be flexible. Being able to improvise and iterate is essential.
     

You will get bonus points for experience with:

  • Directing voice talent
  • Audio production or sound design
  • Programming languages like JavaScript
     

And how do I apply?

We look forward to hearing about you and what you do. Make sure your application includes:

  • Your reel, complete with breakdown of your role and responsibilities for all included clips, as well as applications used.
  • A cover letter that clearly explains three reasons you think you’d be a great fit for this role.
  • Your resume.

Our yard is the Chicago River and our porch is the Chicago Skyline. Nuff said.

An Insider's view of Jellyvision

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Jellyvision is a place where I truly feel like leadership wants me to be healthy/happy. They really show me they want you to have a work/life balance. The company does everything they can to avoid unwarranted stress with unlimited PTO, flexible Working From Home, emails reminding me to take care of myself, and ways to get help from my teammates.

Drew

Implementation Expert

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

The Product team works with other teams to balance customer needs/user wants in a way that educates, promotes good decision-making and drives sales. We're trying to find that balance by listening to our internal/external stakeholders, considering company goals and making decisions that positively impact business, our customers and their employees.

Niral

Lead Product Manager

How does the company support your career growth?

At Jellyvision, you don’t just hear from your manager when you’ve done something wrong. Jellyvision is big on positive feedback and celebrating success. In my experience, management has been great at helping me identify what my strengths are and pointing me in that direction as I progress here.

Senior Business Development Specialist

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

Implementation is a team of ballers, constantly impressing me with new ideas. Our most recent ideas are new classes around Professional Development and a pilot approach to quickly implement customers. These ideas came from folks on the team. When my coworkers have these ideas, my job is to give them the support and resources to run with them.

Alex

VP of Implementation

What projects are you most excited about?

I’m in love with our primary product ALEX because it has real impact on people including some of my own family members! Our product helps users to smartly choose their benefits in an easy-to-understand and friendly way. Also, we are always coming up with new ideas and better versions of our products. Jellyvision is always on the go!

What are Jellyvision Perks + Benefits

Jellyvision Benefits Overview

* Competitive pay, 401(k) with matching and benefits. We pay 100% of the cost of premiums for medical, dental, vision, disability and life insurance for our employees (as long as you qualify for our tobacco-free discount; if you’re a tobacco user, your medical premiums will be higher than $0). We also cover a really nice chunk of the cost of premiums for spouse/dependent medical, dental and vision insurance.

* Casual dress and a flexible schedule. Come in a sweatshirt, jeans, whatever, like everyone else here.
Creative work environment. We are lucky to work in a place that is full of intelligent, talented and innovative folks. Although most hours the place is deathly quiet (we're a focused bunch), this is punctuated with hilarious outbursts and general merriment, which makes a nice way to spend the day.

* Free food. Every week, we stock our kitchen with free healthy snack foods, and we have a catered lunch every other week to give people a reason to hang out and eat together.

* Easy transportation and lots of love for folks who bike to work. We’re really close to the North/Clybourn red line stop and the Halsted (#8) bus (right by the Apple Store and Mega Whole Foods too), and we have a transit FSA that allows you to dedicate pre-tax dollars to public transportation expenses. A number of our employees like to bike to work, so we also have bike storage, showers and lockers in the office. And for those without their own bike in the city, we offer free divvy memberships – complete with Jellyvision bike helmets you can borrow from the office.

* Did we mention our yoga and meditation classes? We bring a pro instructor right to the office. Fully subsidized by Jellyvision and fully optional, btw.

* Oh! And we have a massage chair. Not just any massage chair, my friend. It’s the Renew 2 Zero-Gravity Massage Chair by Brookstone®. Feeling a little stiff? Sit down. Relax. Feel better? Good. Okay, back to work.
