Do you enjoy making videos of cars just as much as driving them? Do you want to avoid a media career full of bland corporate interviews? Wish your work involved a steady stream of awesome cars and visits to some of the most exciting car events? Combine your artistic and automotive passions by joining our team.
1600Veloce is known for going above and beyond to create informative technical articles and authoritative guides that help track enthusiasts get the most out of their cars and driving skills. Going forward, we want more of our content to be in video format that quickly and clearly portrays the beauty and emotions of these cars to our fans.

Please note that before we extend a formal offer to anyone for this full-time position, as a final assessment and real-world test of skills/character, we will hire the top candidates for a few video small shoots on a contract basis. We’re not looking for freebies -- these gigs will be executed at your hourly/daily rate so that everything is fair if things don’t work out.
