Since its launch almost 15 years ago, Modern Love has become one of Company’s most popular columns. And its weekly podcast has struck a chord with listeners that has only deepened over time. Now, the show is looking for a dynamic producer who can lead the production needs of a weekly show, plus imagine what the next 15 years could look like.
The Modern Love producer will be focused on being the primary person dedicated to coordinating and executing all aspects of production. You’ll get support from an editor and brainstorming companionship from other producers and editors on the Audio team and the Styles desk, but ultimately you will be responsible for scripting, producing and editing, identifying and pulling tape, and then assembling the episode in Pro Tools.
You will also be thinking about how to adapt the column in a way that pushes the editorial ambitions of The Times forward. You are expected to be enterprising, outlining new ideas and taking bold risks to ensure that Modern Love continues to be a must-listen-to show.
You are a person who is excited by audio storytelling, and working in a highly collaborative environment. You are highly organized and comfortable meeting deadlines. If this all sounds like you, then we’d like to talk more.
Produce the show from start to finish, including research, booking, recording in the field and/or studio, cutting tape, mixing audio.
Direct the host and guests in the studio.
Work with editorial figures from both the audio team and the Styles desk.
Manage an editorial calendar for the show, juggling priorities and longer-term ambitions.
Collaborate with the audience development director and Styles desk to dream up creative ways to reach a new audience via social media and other channels.
