Job Description:

The Creative, Brand & Media team is looking for an exceptional Business Affairs Manager to join our growing, world-class film production team. You will be responsible for all Business Affairs needs across a wide range of projects--big and small, internally or externally produced. These include anything from docu-style customer transformation films, to high level anthemic videos, released both on our own channels, and in paid media. While the role will consist primarily of business affairs responsibilities, there will also be an element of basic asset management and internal trafficking of related work.

Preferred Qualifications:

-A minimum of 4-5 years Broadcast Business Affairs experience
-Experience at an advertising agency, internal production team, or for a production company
-Basic understanding of video file specs and formats
-Understanding of contracts, term negotiation, and collaborating with lawyers


-Negotiating marketing releases, and navigating redlines between customers and legal counsel
-Managing paid and unpaid talent releases
-Licensing footage, music (stock and popular) or other production assets, and tracking use and expirations
-Evaluating requests for allowable video use by our global cross-functional stakeholders, and sharing out the appropriate file format(s) to requesters
-Collaborating with producers to ensure all of their business affairs records are in order, such as completion reports, stock image records, licenses, releases, and anything else unique or important to a particular project.
-Occasional asset management in terms of sharing films or footage with a limited number of people

Client Description:

One thing we know is that this client, as big as it is, is still setting the standard for not only the product they’re turning out, but for the way they conduct business.

Our client is the global leader in technology, with offices in many major cities. As different as those cities are, you can expect that the personality of each office is the same. Commonalities include bringing people together in the physical work space, outlets for creativity (outside work-related exercises), and a setup for brainstorming on the fly, whenever the opportunity strikes.

What they see in your resume, if you’re selected, is your ability to be an autonomous thinker, and a team player; someone focused, and driven to push the envelope who can also let down their guard and have fun with the team while doing it; someone who has the intellectual capacity to challenge even the most innovative thinkers without the hubris that tends to accompany it. No egos here!

Here, everyone is considered a project owner, and expected to give 100%, even when the path forward isn’t necessarily clear.

Work here, and know you’re working with a Forbes #1 rated company.

Work here, and know you’re setting the pace for digital products globally.

Work here, and find the challenge of your career!

And in case you’re afraid you won’t have time for other things, you’ll be able to take advantage of:

  • Fitness center access

  • Discounts on things like dry cleaning and oil changes

  • Free lunches

  • Convenient commuter shuttles
