Employment Opportunities


Associate Producer, We Live Here


Posted on: October 05, 2017

Application Deadline: October 27, 2017

Description and Responsibilities:

We Live Here, a podcast for people somewhere on the woke spectrum, needs an extra set of hands to help us make our show.

We've been up and running for about three years and have been incubated inside St. Louis Public Radio. We operate like a startup, and we get deep into issues of race and class. Oh, and we just signed a deal with PRX, which is the production and distribution engine behind some of the best shows out there, including This American Life, Reveal and The Moth Radio Hour.

And now we need you to help us build on this momentum, come up with the next great episode, plan our next storytelling event. And to be honest, help us make sure sure we don't drop a ball. Things we have in mind include helping us shape audio stories and coming up with new and impactful ways to engage and grow our audience.

This is a part-time, one year, contracted position. Although we're working on nailing down funding needed to extend it beyond that.

The formal job requirements are listed below. But the bottom line is we need a true team member. We don't want to just assign you stuff, we want you to assign yourself stuff. To take full ownership, learn and have fun.

We'd love for you to be based in St. Louis. But if you are the right candidate, we're cool with you working remotely.

We're open to people at all points in their career and from all backgrounds.

Supervision Received:

The producer reports directly to We Live Here co-hosts.
