Job Requirements What’s the job?

We need a skilled creative mind that can help us go from initial conversation with talent all the way to fully a produced podcast – one that meets our unparalleled quality standards – that’s ready for distribution to our listeners. You will work closely with the members of the content team, including the CEO, to formulate show ideas, target talent and other content partners, devise a format, and then create a pilot with our production team.

Our shows must not only be artistically exceptional, they must also be commercially viable. This means you’ll need to work with other stakeholders within the organization to ensure that our content will have audience and sponsor appeal.

Beyond that, the job is truly what you make of it – create awesome audio content free from the constraints of traditional media channels, outdated formats, institutional history, and preconceived top-down creative direction. Identify great talent, help recruit them and build great shows around them. Experiment, move fast, iterate, figure out what works. Help great shows become better. Make the future of news/talk audio happen.

Who are we looking for?

You, if you believe that podcasts are among the most intimate, engaging forms of entertainment and you need to be excited about creating excellent content.

You must be based in or near Los Angeles or New York City.

You should have:

  • 5+ years experience in content development and production for:

    • podcast, terrestrial or satellite radio, or similar audio medium (ideal)
    • television, web video or related medium (optional)

  • Experience working across a variety of genres and styles: comedy, in-depth interview, news, documentary, etc.
  • Understanding of emerging, digital-first media models
  • Experience working collaboratively with creative and editorial talent
  • Hands-on audio editing skills (currently in use or in your past)
  • A network of contacts within the entertainment and journalism worlds
  • A bachelor’s degree or higher

We don’t discriminate. You should be legally permitted to work in the U.S.
