Inc. is the voice of the American entrepreneur. We inspire, inform, and celebrate the risk-takers and curious go-getters at the centers of innovation and new business development. Some of the most widely-known people we've 'discovered' include: Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Larry Ellison, Scott Cook, Tony Hsieh, and Ping Fu.
Inc. is growing in 2014, and we're looking to tell more of these entrepreneur stories through video. We already produce dozens of clips each week, under several series names: How I Did It, The Playbook, Inc. Live, Idea Lab, Founders Forum, and Trep Life. We'd like to continue to build upon these franchises and create new ones.
So we're looking to hire a new video producer:
