Commissioning Editor (True Crime and Fiction)
A full time position at Podimo, UK
Posted: Feb 5, 2020
Podimo is where great stories are heard. Stories that enable listeners to understand more about themselves, their life, and the world around them.
And creators are where great stories begin. We believe that creators are the backbone of the industry and deserve to be compensated for the value they create. That’s why we're creating a new ecosystem for podcasts that can exist next to the current advertising-based one.
We'll begin by partnering with creators and storytellers to offer a catalogue of world-class original productions and exclusive programming, curated beautifully on a new listening platform. And we'll need help to make this work! From the creative community, from listeners, and from talented individuals to fill the first London-based roles like the one below.
We're looking for an excellent story finder and crafter to be Podimo’s first London-based commissioning editor focusing on True Crime and Fiction.
The right candidate should have deep and positive relationships within the creative industry (audio and other) in the UK and US, and a track record of soliciting and reviewing a high volume of world-class show pitches.
They should have an ability to executive-produce Podimo's own shows and manage them from ideation through launch, while also overseeing a large volume of exclusives that will be in production simultaneously, and providing meaningful and calculated editorial feedback to the producers and talent in those shows.
