Head of Production / Executive Producer
We’re seeking an experienced video Producer to act as Head of Production at our newly opened office in Shanghai. Our ideal
candidate has wide experience working in commercial advertising in China, is excellent at multitasking, and has the ability
to oversee multiple projects at the same time.
The Head of Production will be responsible for supervising projects that go through the Shanghai office, making sure they
are being executed under time, budget and quality standards, and liaise with each project’s Project Manager/Producer
throughout their course. Although the Head of Production will be primarily overseeing all projects from a management
level, we would like to find someone who is passionate about production and enjoys getting their hands on projects as
Key skills required for this position are as follows:
Deep Commercial Video Production Experience.
• We’re seeking someone with extensive experience producing high quality advertising videos – ideally including TVCs,
brand films, product launch films, and/or documentary content. We work with some of China’s most exciting tech startups
and technology brands, and producing a wide range of advertising content that lives across a number of different platforms.
Therefore, finding someone with deep experience in video production – including sourcing personnel, planning and organizing
shoots, and project managing the entire production process, from ideation to post – is very important for us. This person
also has a deep network of resources – including directors, DOPs, motion graphics specialists, post production teams,
Passion for Training and Mentorship.
• We’re a relatively new business – having opened in early 2016 – and we function a lot like a startup. As such we’re looking
to find people who are willing to share their experience and skills with the other members of our relatively young team
– in order to continue training and developing our staff. Finding someone who excels in mentorship and training is very
important to us.
Cross-Cultural Communication Ability.
• Our primary business is about using video content to launch Chinese technology brands on the international stage. Therefore
it’s highly important for us to find people who can ‘bridge the gap’ between Chinese and Western culture. We’re seeking
people who can confidently communicate in both Mandarin Chinese and English – in both written and spoken forms. Further,
we’re looking for cross-cultural people who can not only communicate in both language – but who can work to confidently
transmit ideas and concepts back and forth as well.
Leadership Skills and Personal Profile.
• Our ideal Head of Production candidate is a detail-oriented, highly organized individual, who has the ability to delegate
projects, as well as being able to clearly explain requirements to project teams. This person ideally has some experience
managing internal teams and external suppliers/vendors, while sustaining a high quality standard. On the other hand,
our ideal candidate is a curious thinker who is interested in learning about new tools, trends, and technologies and
why they are unique.
