About Us

Popsa is an e-Commerce startup that uses data to automatically create personalised prints such as photobooks, calendars, and boxes of prints.

Our app is live in 10 languages and we ship to 38 countries around the world.

We are already generating revenue and we grew by 60% month-on-month in 2017. France is our biggest market, followed by the UK and Italy.

In March 2018 we announced a significant fund raise from some of the best investors in the world, including Silicon Valley accelerator 500 Startups, famous brand experts The Garage Soho, Pembroke (investor into Five Guys and Heist), and Octopus (by far the largest investor in Europe).

Our goal is to generate beautiful keep-sake mementos and personal photo-diaries entirely in the background - selecting the best user-generated content via machine learning algorithms before programmatically designing appropriate layouts.

We're calling it a subscription service to your memories; your best photos carefully curated and lovingly presented, printed and shipped to you each month - all without lifting a finger.

Our Vision

The Role

We're looking for a talented and ambitious Video Content Creator to join the team.

Working closely with our designers and our Head of Marketing you will be expected to think strategically, especially when it comes to discovering what content resonates with our target audience.

You will also have the fantastic opportunity of working with the likes of Sir John Hegarty, founder of BBH, who is an investor in Popsa and is advising us on creating amazing ad-worthy content.

This role is incredibly creative. You'll have the freedom to come up with new ideas and put them into action.

You'll be expected to come up with concepts, compose scenes and record high quality footage which you can then edit into coherent short videos to be used in advertisements, in our apps and on social media.

You'll need to be highly motivated to keep reinventing how we present ourselves and coming up with new ways to engage.

Think of the role as if becoming Popsa's in-house influencer.

Your daily duties will involve:

  • Creating adverts, memes, stories, tutorials or other video content to drive engagement.
  • Thinking outside the box to create provocative, engaging content.
  • Putting ideas into practice by preparing for a shoot; organising any props, samples or actors that might be required. Sometimes this might mean working with some of our customers too.
  • Editing video content in professional software such as Final Cut Pro, After Effects etc.
  • Working closely with our marketing managers; e.g. re-working videos to optimise conversion.
