Yay for videos coming up! I’m a little sad you won’t be cooking/presenting the videos yourself but I’m sure they will still be awesome. I remember your blondie/brownie video from way back when and it was so much fun :) Good luck on the hiring process!!

That’s so fun you remember my blondie video from way back! It was a blast. We definitely haven’t ruled out those types of videos for the future. :)

“Submit a recipe video 30 to 60 seconds in length (1080×1080 pixels)” Did you mean 1080×720 or 1920×1080?

Reply

9 Angela Liddon January 10, 2017

Hi Adam, Thanks for your question! 1080×1080 would be great as we’d like to use square format for social media.

Hi Angela!
I am interested in applying for this position, but would like to know more about what you’re looking for before I do. Unfortunately, I don’t have an iPad or iPhone so I cannot access your app or your videos. Is there any other way you can post/share a video to provide a better idea of what you’d like to see? Thank you! Excited at the possibility of joining the team!

15 Angela Liddon January 10, 2017

Hi Jennifer, Thanks so much for your interest in the position! To get a better idea of the aesthetic we’re going for, you can check out this link to the app’s page in the Apple Store: if you scroll down the page a bit, it provides a few screenshots that should give a good sense of the style we’d like the videos to have. There’s also this blog post, where you can see a video trailer for the app. I hope those links help a bit, and please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any more follow-up questions!

This is so exciting! Congrats on trying something new … I always see friends sharing cooking videos online but they are usually so unhealthy! I can’t wait to share some Oh She Glows recipes! I feel like so many people that wouldn’t otherwise try vegan food will be likely to give it a try once they see how it’s made … and how tasty the finished dishes look!

Thank you, Shauna! I’m beyond excited for this, and it’s wonderful to see my readers are enthusiastic about the idea, too. :)

My wife and I love your blog! Are you looking for a videographer in your area or could I be living half way around the world from you? (Just thinking with regards to interviews and filming etc.) ;)

28 Angela Liddon January 12, 2017

Hi Ed, This is a remote position, so although it’s a bonus if you’re in the Greater Toronto Area as it’s always great to be able to meet in person, it’s not necessary!

Wow, awesome opportunity! I love that you’re willing to work with someone who is remote, but are you able to hire someone who is not Canadian? I’m guessing you couldn’t employ a U.S. citizen, but it’s worth an ask! Cheers.

Hi Whitney, Thanks so much for your interest in the position! We’re open to employing someone from outside Canada, so if you feel this job is a good fit for you, please do consider applying. :)

Hi Angela,

Firstly, I want to thank you for sharing your amazing talents and recipes with me for all these years. I have watched you have your babes as I have had mine (we were pregnant both times together!) and rave about your recipes and extremely scrumptious/nutritious food to all my friends.
I’m the foodie and cook and my husband is the videographer/app developer/graphic designer. Would you accept a husband and wife team? I would be so blessed to be able to work on your team while I do my #1 job of being a stay-at-home to my girls.

Hi Allison, Yes, we’re totally open to hiring a husband-wife team! If you decide to apply, we’d love to hear from you.

Just patiently waiting for the day you decide to hire for a “food tester” position…I know it’d be hard work, but someone’s gotta try all that food you’re making, right? :D

Hi!

I have my application ready to send and noticed there were two email addresses in the post. I was wondering if we should send an email to both [email protected] and [email protected]? or just [email protected]?

I had such a great time making the demo video, and can’t wait to share it! This is such a wonderful opportunity, so I want to make sure to send it to the right place.

39 Meagan January 25, 2017

Sorry for the silly question! I figured it all out. I’m new to posting through YouTube, I usually use Vimeo. I hope you received my application and video, looking forward to (hopefully) hear back! *fingers crossed*

Hi Angela,
Well I must be having the worse tech luck. I purchased the “Detox Bundle” in the app but the recipes will not load to my phone. When I try to load the recipes I get messages that say the bundle has already been purchased and the recipes will be restored but they never actually load. I tried leaving this information on the App page, but I’m not sure my message actually went through. I use an Iphone 4S.

Hi Angela!
I too was quite excited to see this posting. I’m working on my submission and just had a quick question- are you wanting only overhead shots? Or can I mix in some close-ups from other angles for some variety? Big thank you for all the inspiration over the years, and I look forward to submitting my application.

Reply

46 Angela Liddon January 20, 2017

Hi Cassie, Thanks so much for your interest in the position. Though our original concept was for a video featuring overhead shots until the final close-up of the finished product at the end, please feel free to take some creative license with the video and add some variety as you see fit. We look forward to receiving your application!
