Video Editor

We are looking for an editor to strengthen our creative team. Someone who brings our edits to the next level, who dares to make choices and who has their own signature.

Who are we looking for?


  • Have at least a HBO minded way of thinking/working in the area of media and film
  • Have at least 2 years of relevant work experience as an editor
  • Have professional work experience in Adobe
  • Know the difference between h.264 and ProRes
  • Are used to working precisely: 5k proxy workflows and systematic data handling are self-evident to you
  • Have your own style and taste and have a good feel for visual and auditory aesthetics
  • Have an eye for detail
  • Are able to communicate your ideas in writing as well as visually, and you understand that not everyone speaks your language
  • You have strong communication skills
  • You know how to deal with an ocean of freedom. You are able to prioritise and plan your time. You can manage on your own

And this is what you will be doing


As a part of our creative team, you play an important role in all of our work. You have a talent for aesthetics, have an eye for (graphic) detail and are able to go to work in a precise way. You make bold music choices and inside-the-box editing is not in your vocabulary. You are able to work alongside different disciplines. Our project managers will keep you up to date on your work, you effortlessly take on a director’s idea while talking with the creative director. And if a client comes with feedback, you can easily apply it and take the next step in your edits.

We find it important that you have the same affinity for storytelling as we do. Solid content where you are able to highlight the main character through your edits is worth more to you than gimmicks and tricks. Just like us, you prefer stories that move you and want to tell a beautiful story.

What do we offer?

  • A full time job (40 uur). Preferably starting immediately.
  • A dedidacted and cheerful team
  • A lot of freedom. You decide your own working hours, and have the opportunity to make a lot of decisions on your own
  • A pleasant work environment. We don’t have any managementlayers and find happy colleagues to be the most important
  • Plenty of room to grow
  • A massage every month, a yearly workspace in the sun
  • Unlimited vacation days – you know best what works for you
Who will be your colleagues?
Why do you work at Captains?
After finishing my studies I started working at a secondment agency for editors. After 6 months I found Captains, which was located in The Hague at the time. I had such a good time here that I immediately switched and started working here. So far, after almost 3 years, I still don’t regret that decision.
What did you do before this?
In 2018 I finished my studies in International Media & Entertainment Management in Breda. Then I got started as an editor at a secondment agency. I worked in the most diverse places, from Shownieuws to World Cup basketball.
What do you do in your free time?
This former Brabander moved to the beautiful city of Delft around 6 months ago. So my free time mainly consists of figuring out how to cook and how to do laundry. Other than that I try to drag myself to the Basic-Fit. And I cause myself pain by going to de Kuip on Sunday’s to watch Feyenoord.

Why do you work at Captains?
I was looking for the freedom to create and undertake things. But with fun people. And… Being from The Hague I was very glad to see that a group of those people was forming near me, and not in Amsterdam or Hilversum. That’s where I wanted to be!
What did you do before this?
I was part of the editorial staff for children’s programs at NPO.
What do you do in your free time?
I have around 70 plants, they need quite a lot of attention. And I love to learn new things. I’m currently learning how to play the saxophone, sailing and how to sew clothing. But I’ve probably started a new project by the time someone reads this. Maybe Tarot Cards or something.

Why do you work at Captains?

Because I eventually fell for Jop’s persistent charm tactics, who managed to convince me that I could make better productions in a team than by myself. I’ve never regretted taking that step by the way. Now I get to surround myself with a great group of talented people everyday.

What did you do before this?
After the Hogeschool for Arts I worked as a freelance film and tv editor for almost ten years.
What do you do in your free time?
Make music, paint, show captains who’s the best in Red Alert.
