Podcast Producer (m/f) // Blinkist

March 2, 2018

This ad goes out to all those who want to find a purpose in what they’re doing and take ownership of their work.

At Blinkist, we’ve created a meaningful product that is growing fast. Our blinks – key insights from the world’s best nonfiction – help more than 4 million people around the globe to keep learning new, exciting things each and every day.

In 2017, our app has been nominated by Apple as one of the best in the App Store. We have received the World Summit Award, granted by the United Nations, in the Learning & Education category, as well as a Google Material Design Award for Brand Expressiveness.

Why do we need you?

Our podcast, Simplify, was downloaded over 700k times over its first two seasons. We need you to help us continue that success and make more incredible podcasts in 2018!

What you will do:

  • Drive show production from inception through post mortem
  • Pitch and plan podcast episodes and seasons
  • Pitch episode and show ideas for future endeavors
  • Help arrange and carry out interviews
  • Help edit podcasts
  • Support wider podcast efforts including outreach, promo, research, and uploading
  • Align podcasts with the wider goals and content of the company
  • Collaborate with CRM managers, designers, developers, and the brand marketing team

What we believe will help you excel in this role:

  • 2+ years making excellent audio content (podcasts, radio, etc.)
  • Great editing eyes and ears—you know a great sentence or story when you see it, and know how to shape it
  • A love of podcasts
  • Willingness to work on either side of the mic
  • Basic recording and editing competency with DAWs
  • Comfortable with meeting publishing deadlines
  • Experience working with branded content (welcome, but not a necessity)
  • A love of reading and a passion for books, affinity for nonfiction, some knowledge of the nonfiction landscape
  • An experimental mindset
  • An up-to-date understanding of trends in audio
  • A no-nonsense ruthlessness when it comes to creating great content: you’ll kill a darling if it means a better final product

What’s in it for you?

At Blinkist, we offer a fantastic workplace in the heart of Berlin-Neukölln including all the benefits you’d expect – from a personalized perk system to free private language lessons.
