The 2,200-person Financial Times is out with its first-ever employer brand video, aimed at attracting people to the changing news industry.

She’s talking about employees like data analysts, product managers, and developers.

The FT used an American film production company called Propagate to make the video, which describes the type of employee the company wants. It took about three months to complete, and was filmed in London and New York.
