Podcast producer wanted

We’re looking for a podcast producer with a strong track record with audio production for Enterprise. You will work on a podcast currently under development, as well as other products we will roll out in the future.

The ideal candidate will have experience and background in audio production and journalism (or at least be well-versed in the news). This includes familiarity with audio production software, such as Adobe Audition. A strong background in business / economics / finance, and/or entrepreneurship and technology is also preferred, but not a requirement.

Native-level command of English is ideal, and the ability to speak Arabic is a significant plus.

We are looking for candidates who are available full-time in Egypt. Fresh graduates are welcome to apply. Although we have a preference for Egyptian nationals, foreign candidates are also encouraged to apply.

This position involves a measure of shift work and is ideal for someone who is a motivated self-starter.

To apply, please submit 2-3 audio samples and a solid cover letter telling us a bit about who you are, why you’re a good fit and what interests you in Enterprise. A CV is nice, but we’re much more interested in your clips.
