  • An excellent understanding of editing, visual flow and storytelling. including reviews and editing of scripts.
  • Advanced knowledge of Adobe Creative Suite software, especially Premiere Pro and After Effect, and maybe other relevant software such as Davinci Ressolve.
  • The ability to meet tight deadlines and handle high complexity projects with many master files.
  • Fluency in English and Danish.
  • Good understanding of digital and traditional advertising placements and how to tailor your edits to different media placements.


What do we offer you?


This is your shot at joining an agency with an entrepreneurial mindset. An agency with full inhouse capabilities covering everything from digital media buying/planning, tech/development, creative, strategy and on-site production.


Our clients are our colleagues.  This means we partner up and focus our energy on building the best communications and digital solution for our wonderful range of global and local brands such as Kærgården, Lurpak, Cheasy, Castello, Starbucks, Cocio and obviously Arla.


We are fiercely ambitious, international, and have hired from global hubs like London, New York and Singapore. But, unlike most agencies, we also offer a healthy and sustainable work/life balance and real flexible working. Some say The Barn is one of the best places they’ve ever worked. Must be the informal atmosphere. Or the people. Or both.
