Description

Not your everyday stylist position. Collaborate with a full in-house video production team on portfolio-worthy projects: a steady job you will look forward to. 

Position Available:

  • Part-time hair and makeup stylist for video production, with optional wardrobe styling duties.
  • We are also hiring for other positions (videographer / shoot producer, graphic designer, etc.). If you know someone in any of these areas, please do them a quick and friendly favour by letting them know about this posting.

 

Position Overview:

  • Permanent and steady position.
  • Dates can be scheduled well in advance if you need them to be.
  • Hours are generally during traditional office hours, as opposed to evenings.
  • Days are typically between 5 to 8 hours long when video production is scheduled.
  • Duties will include styling hair, applying stage/video makeup, and optionally assisting with wardrobe selection.
  • Stylist should be an expert in using hot tools, styling products, brushes, and makeup (particularly photo-ready or on-camera specific products). You do not need to own all of this equipment already.
  • Stylist will not be required to bring wardrobe, only to provide styling tips and assistance when requested.
  • Stylist will not be required to provide haircuts, but we are open to that if your skills allow for it.
  • Work in a respectful and safe environment with great people. You will naturally be expected to promote that environment by sanitizing tools and applicators between actors.
  • Clients will consist mainly of our employees and executives, company clients, and professional actors.
  • Focus on achieving noticeably remarkable, Hollywood-level, portfolio-worthy results.
  • Opportunity to collaborate on projects for exciting, award-winning products and services, with world-class video editors, videographers, script writers, and motion graphics designers.
  • Occasional opportunities to work with famous actors for videos and other advertisements.
  • Occasional opportunities to optionally assist with movie costume designing and even special FX makeup and hair.
  • Employee will be on company payroll. No issues receiving prompt payment as agreed upon, unlike the common problems found in moonlighting short-term jobs.
  • Travel is rare but may be occasionally required.
  • Stylist position is not in a rushed salon setting where you only perform one type of styling or where quality results aren't appreciated or aren't captured on video for the long term.

 

Requirements:

  • Very skilled with both female and male hair styles.
  • Very skilled with both female and male video make-up.
  • Able to work in a standing position for long periods of time.
  • Takes pride in work.
  • No specific requirements for education or industry experience. We evaluate each applicant based on merit rather than formalities.

 

About The Work Environment:

  • Friendly, non-threatening, and non-political environment.
  • Mid-sized company but retaining the speed and flexibility of a smaller company.
  • We are a great environment for both outgoing people and those who are very shy and introverted (applicable to non-client facing positions).
  • We strive to have every employee sitting near a window for natural light and to have plenty of plants throughout the office; we care about employee health.
  • Free onsite massage therapy.
  • Private nap rooms for isolated thinking time or for taking a nap if you didn’t sleep well last night.
  • Atrium to enjoy the sun during lunch.
  • Social events worth remembering (fencing competitions, curling, video game or board game parties, coding competitions, commando combat training, robotics club coming soon, etc).
  • An example of our culture: Lunch together is in a very comfy sofa room, and even the quiet types are comfortable there.
  • Unlimited access to pillage our kitchens for caffeine, sugar, healthy snacks, soups, and more 🙂
  • Additional perks that are cost-shared like motorized sit-stand desks.
  • Task focused: everyone in the company heavily uses centralized to-do lists to stay organized, prioritize, and coordinate.
  • Fast paced
  • Consistent work/life balance: mandatory overtime is very rare.
