Job Description

Flexible freelance video positions are now open. You get to make your own schedule and work from anywhere. Perfect for the content creator who wants to gain exposure and build an online portfolio.

Darby Smart is looking for knowledgeable beauty experts to create beauty video tutorials, baking videos, DIY projects and product reviews for our brand partners. We’re looking for people who have experience creating interesting, high-quality videos.  We partner with big brands like Glossier, Kraft, Barkbox, and more to connect you with them. You make high-quality videos for the brand, and get to build your portfolio. It's a win- win! 

We try to pay above average for each gig we have- meaning we will pay a minimum of $500 for each video you make for us. Usually, our highest is $2000. We've recently had an influx of brands looking for content which is why it's a great time for us to refocus on creators and content- your work. We mainly work with beauty brands and some cooking/baking, but have also been involved in DIY projects. Below are some of my favorite Darby Gigs as great examples:




 If you think you can make things like this, great! Next step is for you to go to : 

This will add you to the gig alert list. Don't worry you won't get any spam! We will only email you when we have a gig.  When an opportunity comes along you'll receive an exclusive alert via email. Be among the first to respond, and you've got a great chance of booking the Darby Gig! Gigs are first come, first served. 

 The way the process works is the following:

If you're chosen for a gig the clock starts. Get to work creating a unique video that makes the brand shine. We'll supply you with a creative brief to make production even easier. If there is any product -makeup from a specific brand, food from Kraft, etc- we will ship to you. 

You get to keep all the products, and we'll work with you to completion and delivery of video- any edits, etc. 

A few notes- I HIGHLY suggest downloading the Darby Smart app, and uploading a few of your videos or creations on there, as we use your Darby profile as your portfolio. You can only upload to your account via mobile, but feel free to add anything you'd like! 

By contributing to Darby Smart, you have the opportunity to build your brand and digital portfolio and gain exposure to Darby Smart’s 18 million enthusiasts.
