Podcast Audio Engineer
We’re looking for an exceptional freelance audio engineer who obsesses over the details.
We are a very detail-driven company, and this role in particular requires a high level of attention to detail.
Why is this so important?
Because when the created work is missing a few key details, or those details aren’t quite as good as they could be—no matter how small they are—the whole project suffers.
If you're an exceptional audio engineer who loves what you do and cares about producing great work, then read on!
About the role
We produce and market podcasts for clients in a variety of industries. Experience or interest in any of the following industries would be very helpful:
- Financial planning
- Wed design and development
We offer steady work, a process-driven environment, and a team that will support you and help you do your best work.
- This role is part-time, with the opportunity to grow.
- To start, you will be editing four to eight episodes per week.
- You will also have the opportunity to work on other related aspects of podcast production if interested.
We are 100% remote, but some overlap of the EST time zone is preferred.
You must have experience editing podcasts and be able to show examples of your work.
Beyond being an excellent audio engineer, you need to be curious and never satisfied with “good enough”. You must know how to ask questions and solve problems without being micromanaged.
You must be an excellent communicator, and have a good ear for what makes audio sound great
You must have high-level proficiency in the following tools:
- Adobe Audition
- iZotope RX 7
We pay $35 per episode, depending on experience.
We value attention to detail, commitment, and a positive "can-do" attitude. You will be a great fit for our team if:
- You are reliable. Our business is deadline-driven. You will have weekly deadlines that you must be able to meet without exception.
- You are a great communicator. Our team is entirely remote, and the ability to communicate in a clear and timely manner is essential.
- You have a good ear for what makes audio sound great. You know when an extra .5 seconds of space is needed, or when to make something tighter. You know the difference between an “um” that should be edited out, and one that should be left it.
- You obsess over the details.
- You do your best work, every time - checking your own quality before passing your work to others.
- You enjoy your work.
- You are proficient with platforms and tools such as:
- Adobe Audition
- iZotope RX-7
- Audiogram tools like Wavve.co and Headliner
- Hosting platforms like Libsyn, Transistor, etc.
- Communication tools like Slack, WordPress, G Suite, Dropbox, etc.
- You are able to work within established systems and processes, and eager to grow and improve your craft.
