An Insider's view of Anchor

What does your typical day look like?

A typical day starts with a quick stand-up with my team. I then scan a few dashboards to see what podcasts are performing well and better understand what is driving our growth. Often times, I'll get to sit in product meetings as a voice for our creators. The rest of the day is spent meeting with potential creators which is always the highlight.

Armand

Head of Content Partnerships

What are some things you learned at the company?

I've been able to learn much more than what applies to just the functions of my job; the importance of teamwork, troubleshooting (there's always another solution!), and communication. I know that the skills I have learned here, from my teammates and through my role, will be applicable to many other aspects of my life and into the future.

Sarah

Associate Product Manager

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

At Anchor, we have a collaborative roadmap that encourages anyone, in any position on the team, to submit proposals for projects to prioritize. This has been a really great approach for us, both in terms of coming up with great, impactful ideas, and teaching everyone on our team how to advocate for something they believe in.
