Crate Media is seeking a podcast editor to edit ongoing episodes in Descript. The Content Editor will review edit requests and production notes from clients, make audio edits to remove mistakes and clean up conversational structure, adhere to episode formats, and collaborate with our Creative Director on revisions and continual improvement.

Passion for the podcast industry is a must; the ideal candidate listens to podcasts regularly, follows their favorite shows on social media, and watches podcasts on YouTube. Prior experience editing audio for podcasts ON DESCRIPT is required, and essential. Video editing experience is a bonus, but not required.

NOTE: All editing happens in Descript; experience in both Descript Storyboard + Classic versions is required. Applications with a focus on Audition, Pro Tools, Reaper, or other DAWs will not be accepted.

The commitment at hiring is 1-2 episodes per week with the potential to add more shows for the right candidate.

You must have **ALL** of the following qualifications to apply:
-Great command of the English language (speaking & writing).
-A very strong understanding of podcasts, experience listening to podcasts, and critical listening to notice potential errors or mistakes in podcast audio & video
-Access to high-speed internet, laptop, and phone at home (with a quiet and dedicated workspace at home).
-Previous audio editing experience, on Descript, specifically for podcasts (at least 1 year).
-VERY organized and excellent attention to detail.
-Willing to learn new things with an optimistic attitude.
-Savvy with online tech tools (or a very fast learner when trained).
-Team player who is proactive, flexible and a good critical thinker.
-Excellent time management skills (self-motivated and able to meet deadlines).

Tech Tools + Sample Tasks:

Working with online tech tools and social media is required since we are 100% an online business.

We will provide detailed videos and checklists showing you step-by-step how to complete all the tasks and you will receive on-the-job training; but it’s important you have some basic knowledge of these tools.

When you apply, please copy this list below and mark the following online tech tools you’re familiar with and what level you consider yourself to be (beginner, intermediate, or advanced level).

-Descript - to review podcast edits, comments, and requests, and ensure they have been correctly applied when importing the final edit into Logic Pro X.

-Google Drive - view and sort through files and folders, follow file naming conventions, and upload final content to Drive. Additionally, using ‘Google Drive for Desktop’ is suggested to better interface with Google Drive directly on your computer’s desktop (Finder in MacOS).

-ClickUp - view and prioritize assigned tasks, navigate between different folders, lists, and views, and differentiate between parent tasks and sub-tasks. (If you don’t have experience with ClickUp directly, please share what other project management apps you’ve used).

-Slack - for all inter-company communications, checking on project status with other teaUpgrade to see actual infombers, and asking questions about tasks and processes.

We are happy to train the right person who is going to grow with Crate and our clientele long-term.

If you’re interested, please copy the words "Podcast Content Editor + [your first name]” in your headline reply so we know you fully read this job description and have good attention to detail. Any generic, copy+paste responses will be deleted.

If you have recommendations from a previous employer(s), please share it.

Your work schedule will be completely flexible and under your control; instead of set hours, we work off of project deadlines, and you’ll organize your schedule around your task due dates. The majority of the Crate team is in U.S. Eastern Time Zone, with some in U.S. Pacific Time.

WAGE: $0.50 USD per minute of raw audio to start.

As a valued member of our team, we will invest in growing your skillset, personal development and professional growth.
This position is available to start ASAP. A formal interview on video is not required.

To Apply For This Position:
Please reply with the following TWO things:
1. PDF of your resume/CV
2. A copy of a recent podcast episode or other audio project you’ve produced with Descript (please link to and provide access to the Descript project; not the final episode)

If you are missing either of the above, your application will not be reviewed.

Thanks for reading, and we look forward to meeting you.
