We come from diverse backgrounds, brought together by the desire to create amazing experiences for listeners, & a shared belief in working hard, embracing creativity, & supporting one another.

Youre the kind of person whos excited by audio as a storytelling medium. You love taking big ideas & making sure theyre translated into audio in the best possible way. And when they arent, you know how to diplomatically convey that feedback to a client or an internal team. Youre talented but maybe a little self-deprecating about it. Above all, you want to work on a close-knit team who does whatever it takes to hit deadlines while still making quality content for our brand partners.

  • Lead client calls, such as weekly status updates & kick-off calls
  • Create internal & external timelines for campaigns
  • Meet & manage campaign deadlines in a casual but effective manner
  • Identify strategies & emerging trends in the podcast space & work proactively to turn them into innovative programs for partners
  • Create visually stunning & informative kickoff call decks & program wrap reports

Who You Are/What You Have

  • 1-3 years experience in a client-facing, project management or ad sales marketing role, preferably with a focus on branded content
  • Experience interfacing with high-caliber clients, translating their needs to creative teams & vice versa
  • Creative thinker & clever wordsmith
  • Effective but diplomatic communication skills

  • Proactive & savvy problem solver
  • Ability to thrive in a collaborative culture, embracing & effectively implementing feedback

Please submit your resume & a cover letter, along with any work samples you may have. This is a full-time, benefits-eligible position based in our Brooklyn, NY offices.

We are proud to foster a workplace free from discrimination. We strongly believe that diversity of experience, perspectives, & background will lead to a better environment for our employees & a better product for our users & our creators.
