–Audible's Original Content team has begun production on a new documentary sports series. It will include highly-produced, long-form stories (the kind that are really about more than sports).
Our team is looking to hire an additional reporter and producer. These are both full-time, temporary positions with benefits and competitive salaries, that will last for the duration of the first season (32 weeks).
Both positions can be performed remotely (i.e. wherever you are currently based). We might favor candidates in the New York and Boston areas.
You do NOT have to be a huge sports fan to be considered for these positions. It's more important that you have strong storytelling skills and be passionate about long-form audio. You just shouldn't, you know, actively HATE sports.
We are looking to hire both positions quickly, so if you are interested, please apply soon! The application is here.
