Description:

Gimlet Media tells stories through audio. Our roster of podcasts includes critically-acclaimed shows like Reply All, StartUp, Science Vs, Homecoming, and The Nod. We have top editorial, sales, and business teams that work together to create experiences that help listeners better understand each other and the world around them. We are looking for ambitious, curious, talented, and kind people to join our team. 

We come from diverse backgrounds, brought together by the desire to create amazing experiences for listeners, and a shared belief in working hard, embracing creativity, and supporting one another. At Gimlet, good ideas matter more than titles. People who tackle problems with creative solutions, and who love the energy of a collaborative, team-oriented creative process thrive here. We’re proud to have recently joined the Spotify family with whom we share these values.

The Team

The Get Up is Spotify’s hit new daily morning show - the first of its kind to blend the elements you love about morning drivetime FM-radio with a personalized music playlist. The show team consists of three hosts, a supervising producer, producers, associate producers, and technical directors. Every weekday, the team works together closely to create segments on news, pop culture, music, and more.  

The Job

We’re hiring a skilled, self-motivated Senior Producer for The Get Up. The Senior Producer will work collaboratively with the show team to produce strong segments on tight deadlines. They will lead the “dayside” shift for the show, supporting the Supervising Producer in all facets of production and team management. This involves show planning and scheduling, pitching ideas, booking, editing scripts, and working closely with the SVP to help manage day-to-day production of the show. The Senior Producer will direct tapings, ensuring segments come together smoothly in support of the show and team. The ideal candidate has daily production experience and an interest in and aptitude for growth as a team leader. In addition, the Senior Producer is someone who is comfortable working early morning hours on a fast-paced show, and is interested in all facets of daily show production. A sense of humor is also encouraged!

This hire will work remote to start, and eventually from our office in Brooklyn, NY.
