Producer, Scripted Content

New York, NY

Panoply is looking for a versatile and highly organized Producer to work on scripted content in the fun and fast-paced new media environment of podcasting. Can you spot a great story in a bad script? Can you see the seeds of the next hit podcast in an obscure newspaper article? Can you recognize potential in the voice of an unknown writer or performer who will go on to enthral listeners the world over? Following the success of fiction podcasts THE MESSAGE and LIFEAFTER, Panoply is expanding its scripted output. This is an exciting opportunity to help shape Panoply’s future scripted production. The position is based in Brooklyn, NY.

About the Company

With more than a decade of award-winning podcasts and deep knowledge of the medium, the Slate Group launched Panoply, the premium podcast network of top publishers and thinkers. Panoply is a fast-paced, innovative podcasting company with two major focuses: (1) producing and monetizing compelling audio content like the #1 hits REVISIONIST HISTORY from Malcolm Gladwell and THE MESSAGE from GE Podcast Theatre and; (2) Megaphone, the premier technology platform for spoken word audio and a complete end-to-end solution for the distribution and monetization needs of enterprise audio publishers.

Working at Panoply means flexible office hours, casual dress, full benefits, competitive salaries, and vibrant offices in downtown Brooklyn & Washington D.C. We have a friendly work environment, but coolness under pressure and comfort with short time horizons is a must.

Key Responsibilities

This is a flexible role which will evolve over time. You will be working closely with the Director of Scripted Content, who is currently based in the UK, and your key responsibilities will be:

  • helping to identify and develop future projects,
  • setting up, staffing and managing complex drama productions,
  • liaising with acting and writing talent and their agents,
  • casting,
  • carrying out research tasks,
  • identifying potential collaborators and freelance production staff to work on projects,
  • creating trailers and promotional material and working with the sales and marketing team to help get shows the biggest reach.

Requirements and attributes of the ideal candidate:

We are looking for an individual with a passion for drama and comedy, with a broad range of skills who can develop into the company. You will have ambition, drive and creative flair coupled with practical organisational skills and an eye for original content. The successful candidate is likely to have had several years of production experience of working in podcasts or a related field (such as theatre, film or TV) and will need to demonstrate a knowledge of and passion for podcasts, knowing what's out there and having an opinion of what's missing, especially in the fiction domain. Hands-on experience of editing audio would be an advantage but not a requirement.

Apply with a covering letter and resume. Examples of past work (links to audio or media files) would be helpful. Please send your complete application to scripted@panoply.fm.

Panoply is committed to excellence through diversity, which involves attracting talented people from diverse backgrounds and traditions. We encourage everyone to apply.
