About Candide

Candide is a market-network platform helping businesses and the public break new ground in the garden, through the application of technology.
Candide is the gateway to inspiration for garden visitors using exciting immersive technology and enabling quick, contactless ticketing for visitor access. We also motivate the public to connect with nature and enable everyone to grow big and shop small, with curated online catalogues of plants, tools and accessories from exceptional independent businesses.
Based in central Bristol, surrounded by the greenery of Queen Square and the floating harbour, we enable people to progress their passion for plants and nature. We are a team of over 70, openly putting our people first; we're proud to be building a team that genuinely loves working and learning together. We know how important a positive, inclusive culture is, so have a read and see if you think we might be a good fit.

The Role

We are looking for a talented Editor to work closely with our video team to deliver high quality, exciting, post-production videos. You will be contributing to the process with creative suggestions and fixing technical issues whilst ensuring excellent audio quality and maintaining our highly valued brand awareness. You will have the opportunity to demonstrate your ability to create and animate graphic elements and mix appropriate music. We value and encourage innovation and inclusion so will be looking to you for a fresh perspective.

Your Background

With excellent skills in video editing and the ability to create motion graphics and sound design, you will be able to demonstrate strong narrative dexterity and creative thinking. Experience of Adobe Premiere Pro, After Effects and related apps in the Adobe Creative Suite, will be essential as-well-as experience in asset management and shared media storage systems. You will be working on several projects at any one time so will need to be able to multitask and deliver to tight deadlines. Your strong communication and relationship building capability will allow you to work collaboratively across our multi-functional teams.

Working at Candide

Great communication means there is an inherent no-blame culture, and our collaborative and inclusive structure encourages everyone to share ideas on how we can improve our processes, growth and product. Our teams have a short daily stand-up, this ensures we remain aligned, and those who build products stay very close to our customers that enjoy them. To encourage innovation, we hold monthly hack days where everyone can build something new that falls outside our current roadmap - an idea, a campaign or even a small product - with whomever they like.

Our Values

For plants and people
We aim to be the most useful tool in a gardener’s pocket and to accentuate the social, environmental, and physical benefits already associated with gardening. We respect the backgrounds of everyone we interact with - within Candide and across the broader society in which we operate - and actively promote the inclusion of all.
For the collective win
We work together encouraging innovation to leverage new, emerging technologies and continuously adapt. We always act with honesty and integrity, whilst focussing on the needs of our customers.
For good
We respectfully use our platform to encourage conscious, informed decision-making and work with individuals and companies to progress our values
