Associate Producer

About Sandbox Inc. | Think. Create. Connect.

Hi, I’m Sarah Peterson, a Producer here at Sandbox Inc. I’m passionate about storytelling and distilling complex ideas into compelling content. I have the privilege of working with an amazing team at Sandbox, serving clients from around the world who have a mission to improve people’s lives. We’re looking for more skillful team members to help us tackle a range of new and exciting projects.

Sandbox is a digital media agency fusing media and technology to develop customized solutions for our clients’ evolving needs. Our clients, such as UNICEF, World Health Organization, CAMH and TEDx, range within the public and not-for-profit sector, including government agencies, academic institutions, and intergovernmental and humanitarian organizations.

You will be joining a creative and passionate cross-functional team at the intersection of video production, technology, and content creation. We are a lean team of animators, designers, storytellers, technologists, and operational maestros. We carve out great ideas, we enjoy sharing knowledge, and we encourage progress in everything we do.

We’re looking for a creative and analytical Associate Producer to join our team on a full-time basis.


The Opportunity

The Associate Producer’s key objective is to support the Producer with content development across a variety of formats including documentary, live action, animation, explainer material and educational content, among others. Specifically, this involves:

Writing support (50%):

  • Copyediting of internal and client provided material
  • Reviewing interview transcripts and building rough paper edits
  • Brainstorming creative concepts and ideas with the Producer

Content research (25%):

  • Conducting content research and analysis

Coordination (25%):

  • Working with the Production Manager to review and approve licensed material for Sandbox productions and fostering a deep understanding of licensing stipulations
  • Supporting the Production Manager with timeline management and scheduling of select projects
  • Supporting the Producer and Production Manager with client communications as needed

While this position’s main function is to support the Producer with content development, the Associate Producer will be encouraged to hone their skills through mentorship and experience and will have opportunities to further advance their career at Sandbox Inc.
