We are MDRN LOVE. We make it all, start to finish, and make sure it’s absolutely always beautiful, memorable, and on-brand. High-quality content designed to flood the earbuds, smartphones, laptops, and televisions of every Tom, Dick, and Harriet in the big wide world.

This is 2022. It’s time to either stand out or stand down.

We define ourselves as a creative content production house that combines video and stills production with the creative direction that builds brands and spreads ideas.

We are looking for a talented Junior Video Editor to join our expanding team on a full-time basis, initially working from home.
