New York, NY

Experienced

Last May, we launched a new podcast which is growing fast and is already one of the top book podcasts in the US. (Learn more at virtualbooktour.com and “check it out on Spotify or Apple!!”)  We’re looking for an ambitious and creative Producer who can push the limits of what this show can be. Our goal is to scale Virtual Book Tour into a show that appeals to a broad audience of culturally interested listeners and highlights our authors and their books in fun and interesting ways.  We also want to create related content that is successful on other channels including TikTok, YouTube, Instagram, and our own mobile app.
 

What You’ll Do:

  • Oversee podcast production, including scheduling, propping, in-office event coordination, audio recording, lighting, editing and (potentially) distribution
  • Participate in development of guest pipeline including authors as well as other potential guests
  • Collaborate with, and potentially direct, videographers and episode participants
  • Develop a cohesive content approach for podcasts in collaboration with the editorial team, including writing questions and scripting other aspects of the show
  • Elevate and highlight the live event component of the show to make for compelling content across channels
  • Have a results-oriented approach that considers performance data and other feedback to continually improve
  • Conceptualize and propose other formats such as original fiction podcasts

Qualifications: 

  • 8+ years of full-time work experience
  • Knowledge, understanding and passion for books (particularly fiction) is a requirement
  • Experience writing and/or producing successful podcasts and other content series
  • Familiarity with and understanding of the BOTM brand
  • “Hands on” approach coupled with a focus on results
  • Ability to give and receive direct feedback and pivot and or iterate quickly and accordingly 
  • Ambition to break the mold and raise the level of what an author/book-focused series can be

 

Base salary range between: $90,000 - $140,000
