Application Form

Video Applications Only

We expect all applicants to have a basic understanding of video. Please do not send resumes or cover letters.

To be considered, please create a video of yourself under 120 seconds and make it available online. Once you're ready, submit the link to us using the application form below.

Your video should be made specifically for Vanilla Video, and privately available online. Do not use text or graphics in your video, but be sure to provide your contact information (name, email and phone number) in the video.


Be Creative.

Tip: Write a script, and spend a little time planning your video.

Do not send us your portfolio reel. Your video should answer the following three things:

  1. Why you want to work for Vanilla Video.

  2. What recent accomplishment are you proud of?

  3. What are your areas of expertise? Where will you contribute the most value to the team?
