About the role

The Manhattan Institute’s Multimedia Producer will work closely with members of the communications and marketing teams to support, manage, and execute a range of digital media projects that raise the Institute’s profile among key stakeholder audiences, thought leaders, and the general public. In this role, the Multimedia Producer must be both strategic and creative; he/she must be capable of producing engaging content on a variety of platforms and be able to identify new opportunities for the Manhattan Institute (MI) and its online brand(s).
