What We’re Seeking
We’re on the hunt for a digital video content creating master. Someone who’s native in creating content for digital & social media. You’re fluent in banging video and epic still photography and you’re ready to work all over the world following and documenting the fastest sport on the earth, Formula 1.
16K Agency is a digital creative agency originally based in Melbourne, Australia and Stockholm, Sweden. We’re embedded in the fast-paced and action-packed world of F1 racing. We have been creating content at every round of the F1 championship since 2018 which sees us at over 20 international race events per season.
We pride ourselves on telling great stories over social media. We do this by hiring hungry and highly skilled content creators who understand that the opportunity to work this close to F1 is the stuff you tell your grandkids about. If you think your grandkids will love the stories and you’re an epic content creator then keep reading!
Ideally, you’re based in Europe, or can be based there for the F1 racing season (March-December). Depending on the location, we require our content team at the track Thurs-Sun, excluding extra days for travel. The days are big as is this opportunity to wear an access-all-areas media pass around your neck and rub shoulders with the glamourous, the famous and the fastest drivers in the world.
Our task is to create incredible lifestyle content around the premium hospitality, ticketing, event and entertainment programs within F1. This is arguably the best party around live sport anywhere and it is our job to show the world just what goes on in the wild and incredible world of F1.
All flights, hotels, meals at the rounds and transport will be covered by us. This is a contract project role and you’ll be paid for each round you attend.
You’re hungry. You’re a brilliant creative and commercially minded. You can take direction, but you are also a self-starter and eager to get work done. You are awesome to work with and want to be a part of a passionate team!
You’re obsessed with creating social media content and you know what works. You’re up to date with all the major social platforms and you know what type of content works on them. You can work fast, really fast. This means shooting and editing and publishing often on the fly and almost in real-time. You’ve got slick video skills and your still photography is on point. You can edit things so well even Quentin Tarantino gets goosebumps. You’re proficient in Lightroom, Photoshop, Premiere and Final Cut Pro. Your attention to detail needs to be one of your strongest points.
We want this to be the best thing you’ve ever worked on and we want someone who’s got the serious creative skills, work ethic and dedication to deliver.
