Ulaanbaatar Mongolia

Closed

This role will be based in our Ulaanbaatar office, Mongolia.

Street addresses weren’t designed for 2022. They aren’t accurate enough to specify building entrances, and they don’t exist for parks, rural areas and many parts of the world. This makes it hard to find places and causes problems and inefficiencies on a global scale.

That’s why we created what3words.

We divided the world into 3 metre squares and gave each square a unique combination of three words. It’s the easiest way to find and share precise locations. Last year, what3words was used in 193 countries. Our tech is used by emergency services, delivery companies, ride-hailing apps and NGOs, and is integrated into the navigation systems of Mercedes-Benz cars.

We are seeking a mid-weight Video Editor with great Premiere Pro knowledge and After Effects competency to work with our experienced, full service video department.

what3words has a different creative model. You’ll work collaboratively in a motivated award winning marketing and design studio, reporting directly to the Video Team Lead. You’ll need to be proactive, entrepreneurial and enjoy the rapid pace of a tech company that’s trying to create a global standard.

We create a large variety of projects, from use case films to advertising campaigns, for many countries, and we’d like to get better at it.
