FluentU is an online education company that helps people learn languages with real-world videos, including movie trailers, music videos, news and inspiring talks. We have a website, iOS app (usually in the top 20-50 grossing iOS education apps), and Android app. Founded in 2011, we’re a profitable, stable company with long-term focus, and we’re proudly self-funded.
We get 5 million visitors per month on our blogs, and we’re leveraging that to extend our reach on YouTube.
This is a unique opportunity to have a big impact on our YouTube strategy, which is in the early stages.
You would help us make YouTube videos like the following:
Learn English with Will Smith: The Pursuit of Happyness (https://youtu.be/YF7E1oN_cks)
Learn English with Movies: Office Space (https://youtu.be/bCfhjizghhM)
You would also help us create paid English courses like:
How to Communicate Effectively In English Phone and Video Interviews (https://upenglish.thinkific.com/courses/how-to-communicate-effectively-in-english-phone-and-video-interviews)
As a video creator and educator, you would be responsible for:
- Coming up with great video and curriculum ideas
- Writing high-quality video scripts
- Recording voiceovers
- Being on camera to host videos
- Coordinating with our video editors to bring your videos to life
(If you are a video editor, then please also apply to this position instead: https://www.fluentu.com/blog/job-opportunity-reach-a-big-audience-and-make-a-positive-impact-as-a-video-editor/)
We’re doing a broad range of videos that include:
- series videos, where we go through popular scripts
- teaching vocabulary and grammar with whiteboard animation
- lessons taught by an on-camera teacher.
- and of course we’re open to new formats/ideas.
You would work closely with the founder of FluentU.
If you do a great job and our video content is successful, this has the potential to become a full-time/long-term collaboration.
