About carwow

We’re on a mission to change the way people buy, sell or use a car by creating the world’s best online car marketplace. Since starting our journey in 2011, we’ve grown to become one of the most trusted comparison sites with over 12 million active users and an ‘excellent’ Trustpilot rating of 4.7.

carwow is backed by some of Europe’s most respected technology, marketplace and automotive investors, with $55 million Series D funding secured in December 2021. Over 400 carwowers from 25 nationalities work with us in the UK, Germany, Spain and Portugal. One of our goals for 2023 is to become a Top 10 European Start-Up to work for.

About the role

Want to work for the most-watched online car channel in the WORLD?

Well, carwow is looking for a dynamic full-time Short-form Video Editor to join our industry-leading content team to take our social video game to the next level. You will be instrumental in creating content for all our social platforms: YouTube Shorts, TikTok, Instagram, Facebook & Twitter.

You’ll be responsible for accelerating our short-form output, ensuring our videos are fun, engaging and shareable. You’ll be monitoring upcoming video trends on a daily basis, reacting as quickly as possible to ride the crest of a wave as soon as it breaks. Along with that, you’ll also be heading out to get hands-on with cars to create bespoke, unique content to share across all our channels.

Are you the kind of person with the enthusiasm and willingness to learn, who wants to join us on this journey? If so, you’ll be given the opportunity to make the role your own with the freedom to do what’s necessary (well… within reason obvs) to help us achieve our ambitious targets. Be warned: you’ll have to spend quite a lot of time with a range of amazing cars producing awesome content on them.

If you’re up for the challenge and don’t mind joining us for a drag race or two or having to work from the back seats of a £500,000 Rolls-Royce, read on...
