Descript is looking for an intern to edit video for our website, Help Center, YouTube channel, social platforms, and anywhere else our videos might want to hang out.

This is a role for someone who’s hungry to hone their editing chops by editing a lot of video, every day. The person who’s right for this wants to hone their editing skills and creative instincts the only way you really can — by doing a ton of editing.

If you have lots of creative ideas for content, that’s a huge bonus. We’re a collaborative team who understand that good ideas can come from anyone, anywhere.

You don’t have to know Descript super-well to start, but you will have to learn and master the app, quickly.


  • Min. 2 years training (including in school) as a video editor
  • Ability to make quick decisions while editing
  • Creative drive and desire to collaborate on content that’s distinctive, smart, and never boring
  • Eagerness to learn and grow creatively, both by taking feedback and by pushing yourself to get better


  • Videography skills and knowledge
  • Experience working in Descript


  • Edit video — for Descript’s Help Center, YouTube channel, website, social channels, and so on
  • Learn editing and production in Descript
