YouTube/Reality Video Editor

Location: Remote (Preference for Los Angeles-based applicants) Duration: Project-Based / Freelance

We are Steady, and we make content for creators.

We are in search of a creative and versatile storytelling content editor who can navigate the varied content terrain of YouTube, transforming hours of raw footage into compelling narratives that echo the dynamism found in reality TV. No two videos are the same. From high-stakes cooking challenges to adrenaline-pumping drifting videos, and even meticulously orchestrated 6-camera CCTV-style hidden camera shows, each project is a new frontier waiting to be explored.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Selecting and editing videos from hours of footage
  • Be comfortable editing faced pace videos under 10 minutes in length, with some projects extending to 30 minutes and, on very rare occasions, up to an hour.
  • Crafting storylines that resonate with the YouTube audience,
  • Be extremely comfortable suggesting places that voiceovers and motion graphics might enhance narrative depth and viewer engagement.
  • Remote editors must be comfortable managing large data transfers efficiently, to maintain a smooth and effective production workflow. (LA based editors will get SSDs delivered)


  • Proven experience in video editing, with a strong portfolio showcasing your ability to tell compelling stories, particularly in formats that echo the engagement of YouTube or reality TV.
  • Deep understanding of the feel and pacing of successful YouTube videos, with the ability to adapt editing styles to suit different content lengths and audience expectations.
  • Proficiency in Adobe Premiere Pro, with experience working across various camera types and a basic understanding of color theory. While we may engage a colorist for larger projects, a foundational knowledge in color grading is beneficial.
  • Excellent narrative judgment, with the creativity to propose storylines and visual enhancements that elevate the content.
  • Ability to work collaboratively with different content creators, adapting to their style slightly.
  • Comfortable handling the technical aspects of video editing, including managing and transferring terabytes of footage

What We Offer:

  • An opportunity to work with leading YouTubers and influence the digital content landscape with innovative, reality TV-inspired content.
  • Consistent work and fair compensation, reflective of the level of expertise and creativity you bring to our team.

If you are passionate about video editing and have a keen eye for storytelling within the YouTube platform, we want to hear from you. Apply now by sending your resume, a cover letter detailing your experience and approach to editing for YouTube, and a portfolio that demonstrates your expertise in creating engaging, narrative-driven content.
