Vice, the hip media company that just won’t stop expanding, is looking for a Khmer translator for a new documentary, presumably about Cambodia.
And where better to find someone who can start ASAP then on Craigslist, where Vice posted the job listing earlier in the week.
The Craigslist posting comes a week after Vice announced an initiative to “take documentary-style storytelling to hotspots around the globe.”
“We’re basically going to play to our strengths, which has been that longer-form documentary video,” Vice News editor in chief Jason Mojica told Nieman Lab. “We’re going to be increasing the volume of that significantly.”
Here is the job listing:
VICE is an international media company with offices in over 27 countries and a growing portfolio of media properties that includes VBS.TV, Vice Music, Vice Films, Vice Books, Virtue Worldwide, and Vice Magazine.

TRANSLATION MUST BE DONE IN HOUSE AT OUR BROOKLYN OFFICES

Vice is also looking for Bengali translators, but that’s somewhat less urgent (they don’t need Bengali translators to start until January 14).
Vice will probably need a steady supply of translators as the company takes its documentary-style storytelling to more global hotspots.
