EP of Podcast - Digital (Digital Content Strategy)

Digital Division Washington D.C., District Of Columbia


Position at Al Jazeera Media Network


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.
