Job summary
Good storytelling starts with great listening. At Audible, that means each role and every project has our audience in mind. Because the same people who design, develop, and deploy our products also happen to use them. To us, that speaks volumes.
In this role, you will be responsible for the daily maintenance and accurate upkeep of Audible's inclusive content slates and project trackers, sourcing information from a variety of departments and databases in partnership with the team's Scheduling Specialist. You'll communicate these details across teams, providing consistent and clear updates and insights. This role reports into the Inclusive Programming Lead and will support their efforts in creating new programs, curating slates tied to seasonal moments and trends, partnering cross-functionally to fill gaps in our catalog, and providing audience insights and opportunities. The Content Programming Specialist will hold a multifaceted role that helps determine and execute Audible's strategic initiatives with respect to its inclusive content programming, working with internal and external content partners on opportunities to create, acquire, and amplify spoken word titles from traditionally underrepresented voices.
You are obsessed with details. You thrive in a fast-paced, high-volume, collaborative environment, excel at follow through, possess excellent communication skills (written and verbal); and will jump at the opportunity to take on new challenges. Your mission (and ours) is unique and powerful: fill hearts and minds with premium audio content that entertains, informs, and enriches.
As a Content Programming Specialist, you will...
  • Provide the accurate entry, upkeep, and communication of Audible's productions from underrepresented communities and that ladder into our Hear My Story initiative.
  • Surface new content creation, acquisition, or partnership opportunities for creatives from underrepresented and marginalized communities.
  • Mine the existing content catalogue for opportunities for amplification that authentically align with relevant communities.
  • Stay abreast of entertainment trends and what's happening in the inclusive content landscape outside of Audible.
  • Help maintain a programming calendar across content verticals that speaks to relevant cultural touchpoints.
  • Coordinate closely with members of the content teams at Audible to maintain consistency in messaging, clarity on goals, and content needs for our audiences.
  • Continue to improve upon processes to ensure the accurate tracking and communication of release dates, title management, and upcoming opportunities.
  • Support manager in monthly slate meetings, bi-weekly cross-functional team meetings, and ongoing research and insights requests with organization, preparation, note taking and follow-up.
  • Provide similar range of support for kids content programming, but to a smaller degree.
  • Perform other related duties as assigned.

Basic Qualifications
  • Hands-on experience and comfort with the Office suite of tools (Excel, Word and PowerPoint) as well as other systems.

Preferred Qualifications
  • Bachelor's Degree in a related field.
  • 3+ years' work experience, preferably in a direct-to-consumer or programming capacity in the entertainment space.
  • Quick to learn/adapt to internal tools and processes for maximum impact.
  • Extraordinary attention to detail at high volume.
  • Strong organizational skills and the ability to communicate effectively with people both inside and outside the immediate department.
  • A desire to find the most efficient ways of doing things - whether that means innovating current processes, or seeking out how to improve them.
  • Comfort working in a highly matrixed organization where collaboration is required to drive projects forward, frequent and clear communication is muscle memory.
  • Ability to manage a large and ever-changing workload with grace and efficiency is a must, as well as a continuing sense of urgency.
  • Ability to independently prioritize tasks and to work independently as well as with supervised direction.
  • Appreciation of audio entertainment.

An Insider's view of Audible

What are some social events your company does?

Volunteering regularly is organic. It’s gratifying to help create opportunities for others and to know I share that common interest with the people I work with every day. I say it all the time, but it’s why I really love working here. Audible fosters and encourages contributing meaning beyond my day-to-day work. It’s in our company’s DNA.


Senior Director, Tech Program Management

What projects are you most excited about?

We’re able to harness market-leading tools and datasets while benefiting from the employee experience made possible by Audible’s distinctive culture. To be able to employ cutting-edge machine learning technology with a mission is really unique. It’s a playground for us! Every day is a pretty unique opportunity; it doesn't happen everywhere.


Director, Data Science

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

There is constant learning. Even with being here for 15 years, I’ve never felt bored, even for a single day. Every day I’m learning something new that keeps me going. I’ve been on the iOS team, Android team, the services side and now I’m leading the content publishing team. So, it’s end to end and always an opportunity to learn and grow.


Senior Director, Software Development

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

A collaborative culture like ours fosters productive conversations that enable our team to deliver new ideas faster. We go into meetings and have healthy debates with diverse, and sometimes strong, opinions. But we always think about what's right for the customer. Experimentation is critical. We have to move, fail, and innovate fast.


VP, Product Management

How does the company support your career growth?

I’ve seen a lot of my colleagues shift from different roles within QA. Audible provides incredible opportunities for engineers to grow their skills, from soft skills through training to grow professionally. A lot of opportunities exist, and our mentorship program has really facilitated that.
