Executive Producer, Podcast
A full time position at Al Jazeera Media Network, Washington DC, United States of America
Posted: May 20, 2019
Al Jazeera's audio division is hiring an Executive Producer to expand The Take, its feature news and public affairs podcast.
The Executive Producer will lead a talented and diverse team of audio producers within a network that covers the world like nobody else, building what is now a weekly host-led, interview-driven show into a five-day-a-week production.
The EP will shape the direction of a show that creatively combines the journalism of correspondents and documentary teams with original reporting.
This is a full-time job offering competitive pay and benefits at Al Jazeera's North American headquarters in Washington, D.C.
The right candidate has:
- Ten years' experience in an editorial oversight role
- A talent for leading teams and building operational workflows
- International news experience and broad knowledge about and interest in world affairs
- Proficiency in Adobe Audition
- A creative mind and a desire to push the boundaries of what audio can do
There is much to be excited about here: A workplace that's truly diverse and focused on covering the world. The editorial freedom to cover stories that matter — and matter to you. The opportunity to fill a gap in our current podcast landscape with a feature audio show that actually covers the globe. The chance to lead a remarkable team of producers who are just as excited about telling great stories as you are.
While we want someone who understands and has experience in the audio/podcast world, it's most important that you have deep news experience and sharp editorial judgment, and that you're a thoughtful and effective leader. We're always excited to hear from candidates whose backgrounds and life experiences bring further diversity to the team.
