EDITOR (PART TIME)
Transmitter Media is a creative podcast company. Our shows include WorkLife with Adam Grant, The Argument (w/ The New York Times) and The Barneys Podcast, and we make work for partners like ESPN (our 30 for 30 is about pioneers in women’s running) and Topic. We have new narrative and investigative series scheduled for release in 2019.
We’re looking for an experienced Editor to work across our slate of podcasts, which range from documentary and narrative storytelling to highly produced conversation shows. Someone with deep journalism experience who knows what it takes to create exceptional stories, and how to help producers do their best work.
Who You Are:
An expert in story who can guide producers toward ambitious and original storytelling, help refine big ideas, and push for the best possible finished product.
Can have fun in your storytelling and edit for tone.
Hear what is missing and offer ideas for solutions.
Think about our stories as audio-first and lean on tape.
Give big picture guidance as well as line edits.
A great writer, with an emphasis on clarity.
Effective at time-management and are able to produce excellent work on a deadline.
Able to collaborate closely with others and thrive in a team environment.
What You’ll Do:
Provide editorial guidance on structuring longform and serialized podcasts, highly edited conversation shows, as well as help shape new storytelling formats.
Coach producers through the editorial process, while working on fast-paced production schedules.
Help develop ideas, ranging from the arc of a single episode to the concept of an entire season.
Give producers clear, actionable feedback.
What You Have:
5+ years experience editing long & short-form stories (we are open to candidates who come from outside of the audio medium, although direct audio experience is a plus).
Excellent communication skills.
An ability to jump between projects, formats, & teams, at various stages in the production process.
This is a part time role, with a combination of remote work and on-site work in our Brooklyn, NY office. (We have a deck!) Approximately 15-20 hours per week to start, depending on the slate of projects.
To apply, please submit a resume and cover letter with links to 2-3 pieces of work that you've directly edited, with a brief explanation of your role. Send to: email@example.com
