Since the beginning, WeTransfer has been dedicated to supporting artists and their practice. Through WePresent, its editorial platform, WeTransfer celebrates and showcases unexpected stories about creativity, uncovering under-the-radar works of art, photography, and music from around the world and exploring the creative processes behind them. Together, WeTransfer and WePresent are highlighting the fascinating chasm between a spark of an idea and the delivery of the final product. We are looking for an editorial coordinator to help us produce these stories on time, on budget and to the highest possible standard.
