Location: United States – Remote


Job Description

Are you passionate about conveying powerful ideas through the medium of video and visual storytelling? Are you excited about using multimedia and clever copy to inspire action and engagement? Then, this may be the role for you!

As part of VMware’s Global Employee Engagement team, you will be joining one of the most rewarding roles within VMware’s world-class Global Communications organization to help develop innovative, compelling, thought-provoking videos and storytelling assets that build pride and strengthen employee understanding and engagement in our goals.

We’re looking for someone with a creative flair to apply their video storytelling techniques to our employee engagement content and leverage their “influencer” expertise to bring #VMwareLife stories to our global employee community.

You will be critical in threading our employee narrative into digital content through various channels, including our intranet site, enterprise social network, collaboration channels, and newsletters; formats will include video and social copy. But, most importantly, you will help ensure our content is authentic and celebrates our people, purpose, and our culture of belonging.

What you can expect as you work across the breadth of the team to execute on priorities, includes:

  • Within 30 days, you’ll be familiar with our top quarterly employee engagement themes and key moments (“employee events”) to produce creative and compelling short-form videos that emotively connect with our employee community
  • You’ll create and curate content, including how-tos and best practices on our employee communications channels.
  • You’ll work closely with communications leads on various workstreams to build a calendar of compelling videos and short-form stories that creatively pack a punch, primarily for Source (VMware’s corporate intranet) and our internal social and collaboration channels.
  • Within 90 days, you’ll be fully immersed in the team and on top of storytelling trends, proposing new approaches, including elements of interactivity while working with Brand and other content contributors for engaging and fun content.
  • Within 180 days, you’ll apply video storytelling techniques and simple, natural language to convey need-to-know information to readers independently, and develop short video and visual story ideas that support VMware’s employee narrative themes.
  • During this time, you would have built trusted relationships with each of the stakeholders working cross-functionally and cross-departmentally to create new formats to keep our content fresh and engaging for our distributed employee base.
  • Within 360 days, you’ll be an important part of illustrating how VMware is on the cutting edge of employee engagement and seen as a core driver for continued innovation with our employee programs.
  • This role is your opportunity to supercharge your video, communications, and collaboration skills by working across departments and geographies to deliver outstanding results. You have an opportunity to do the best work of your life creative autonomy and plenty of opportunities to try new things!
  • With a company culture that encourages learning and excellence coupled with care and respect, you’ll feel energized as you advance your skill sets among a highly goal-oriented and supportive team.

Keys to success in this role include:

  • Naturally inclined to bring a “social media influencer lens” to creating energy and building momentum for employee campaigns
  • Proficiency with Adobe Creative Suite and at a minimum you are proficient with Adobe Premier Pro
  • Highly collaborative throughout the editing process with a strong sense of rhythm, timing, and pacing when editing to track
  • Understanding of lower thirds, intro, outro, and other animated sequences

Your daily activities will include:

  • Driving the execution of internal employee video content and visual storytelling themes around the world to inspire and engage our global employee base.
  • Working with program leads and global campaign owners to bring to life visually rich and powerful videos that inspire action from the global employee community.
  • Developing storyboards to thread quarterly company-wide editorial themes and aligning outcomes.
  • Ability to coordinate global programs and interface with regional contacts and VMware’s Story Lab to represent our diverse employee community.
  • Accelerate VMware’s social brand by creating content and partnering to showcase content that employees will want to share.
  • Evaluate results against goals and generate key metric reports.
