Job Description

BuzzFeed Studios is looking for an AI Video Fellow to focus on using AI tools to create videos to complement and enhance existing successful articles and posts, such as relationships, travel, money, work, wellness, food, style, and more. All concepts and ideas are welcome, as there will also be space for fully original, new content. This is an opportunity for aspiring and hungry creators eager to experiment with the latest AI technology to make playful and conversation-starting work. The program is both a crash course in how to utilize text, image, and video-based AI tools as well as a chance to regularly contribute to BuzzFeed’s ongoing AI content strategy.

This is the perfect opportunity for someone interested in pursuing a career in digital media. You won’t be running errands for senior staff, or transcribing someone else’s interviews, you will be pitching ideas, taking assignments, brainstorming, collaborating, and ultimately creating dozens of pieces of content that will be published across BuzzFeed’s network.

The Fellowship is fun and inspiring, but also fast-paced and challenging. 

This is a 4 day/week paid position (starting at $20/hour). The Fellowship allows candidates to work fully remotely in select locations, but there will also be opportunities to work from our NY or LA locations. This role begins as a three-month fellowship which may be extended.

The deadline to apply for this Fellowship is July 19th, 2024.  The intended (and tentative) start date for this Fellowship is August 5th, 2024.

You Will

We're looking for culture, internet, and technology obsessives with a passion for the things people are sharing, liking, recommending, and talking about. You should also have:

  • A positive, curious, playful disposition
  • A genuine, wide-eyed love of internet culture and digital trends of all types
Familiarity with — and ideally experience using — current and emerging AI creation tools (Chat-GPT, Midjourney, Stable Diffusion, DALL-E, Fliki, Synthesia, etc.)
  • An interest in social platforms and what drives people to share content
  • Curiosity and excitement about social platforms (TikTok, Instagram, Reddit, YouTube, etc.)
In addition, you should demonstrate the following:

Some experience creating content for the internet (it doesn’t have to be formal — anything from published articles to creative X threads to personal TikTok accounts)
  • An understanding of and POV about the current landscape of AI and LLM tools
  • Ability to quickly identify social trends and topics
  • Ability to handle critical feedback and improve from it
  • Eagerness to collaborate
  • Ability to interpret key audience data points relating to your work and use it to adapt and evolve your approach moving forward
  • Experience with video editing tools a plus
You Have
  • Use AI to create content for existing BuzzFeed properties
  • Use AI to create content for new accounts which will be supported by the BuzzFeed ecosystem
  • Research and learn from the Tech team and other content creators at BuzzFeed
  • Experiment and have fun!
To Apply

Please submit the following when applying to be an AI Video Fellow:

  1. Instead of a formal cover letter, please include a few short paragraphs about what type of content you’d want to make for BuzzFeed, and what interests you about the content BuzzFeed makes. This fellowship is all about AI, but for these paragraphs, we want to hear YOUR voice, not ChatGPT’s.
  2. Create a video (TikTok, YT Short, or IG reel) to demonstrate the kind of content you’re interested in making. It doesn’t have to be super polished but should indicate what kind of content creator you are. You can, but do not have to, use AI in the video.
  3. OPTIONAL: Create a BuzzFeed.com/community profile, and create 1-2 posts that reflect your voice and interests. Please submit articles or lists, rather than quizzes! When you submit your posts, include “This is for the Video AI Fellowship.” in the description.  You’ll be asked to provide the links to your posts when you complete the application. We encourage you to check our Trending page to see examples of posts that reflect what we’re looking for, and to take note of the variety of topics and formats.
  4. Provide links to your public social media accounts.
  5. Attach a resume — keep it to one page!
