    IGN is looking for our next host and producer.  That means you’ll not only be a face of IGN, but a driving force behind the content. From movies to games and all things geek, we’re looking for someone who lives and breaths in our content world. If you've got experienced opinions about what we stand for -- and you know how to deliver on-camera and in the VO booth, this job could be for you. As a host and producer at IGN, you're also responsible for helping build and manage productions as much as you star in them. You don’t need shooting and editing experience, but we do expect you to know how to manage a timeline and what makes a good video great.


    To apply, you must have a killer reel with relevant, varied productions. If you don't, make one and change our minds -- but it must be robust with diverse examples of performance and not just a testimony of why you want to work here.


    Just send us YouTube, Vimeo, or equivalent link(s) so we can watch on our desktops or phones. No files will be accepted.


    What does that mean exactly?

    • Produce and star in daily and weekly IGN video content
    • Expertly research relevant products and topics
    • Write scripts, outlines, and co-produce show rundowns
    • Manage production timelines
    • Promote and achieve views goals for video content
    • Publish accompanying copy for IGN articles
    • Occasionally travel to produce segments on the road at live events, tradeshows, conventions


    What will get you in the door?

    • A demo reel with relevant, published examples
    • Demonstrable wit and wisdom -- you must have strong insights and knowledge on a wide range of topics
    • Excellent conversational abilities
    • Ability to work under pressure and meet deadlines
    • Deep knowledge of video games, movies, TV, comics and related pop culture
    • 1 to 4 years of experience in TV / Film / Online Media Production


    Would be extra awesome if you've got...

    • A social following, and contacts in our industry
    • Teleprompter experience
    • Live show production experience
    • Voiceover experience
    • Self-starter and proactive attitude
    • Video editing experience
    • Experience collaborating with content teams, producers, branded entertainment, social teams and more.
    • Experience with branded entertainment and sponsorships
    • Headshots
    • A Bachelor's Degree


    Here's the good stuff about us:

    • Live and breathe geek culture
    • Open and casual work environment
    • Great benefits


    Come geek out with us, but be prepared to work as hard as you play. It's serious business, after all.
