Link: A YouTuber Launches a Job Site for Creator Work

Roster, a hiring website that officially launched on Wednesday, is focused on helping creators and businesses hire behind-the-camera talent, ranging from video editors to scriptwriters and creative directors. “Creators don’t have a shortage of applicants,” said founder and CEO Sherry Wong. “They can get thousands of applications right away, but they don’t have a good way to sift through the noise.” Wong has been making YouTube videos for more than 10 years and previously led creator partnerships for Next 10 Ventures, a $50 million venture fund focused on the creator economy. She has been testing Roster with select creators since the end of 2022. Aside from job descriptions that include budgets for the role and sought-after skills, Roster offers personalized recommendations about who creators should hire, using an algorithm that analyzes a creator’s content, learns what aesthetic or shooting style they like, and then surfaces the most relevant candidates. Meanwhile, applicants can specify which creators they’ve worked with and share links to videos they’ve helped make. The service charges $150 per job listing, while job seekers use the platform for free. In the future, it could also offer a subscription plan, Wong said. #
