Junior Marketing Manager
Podium AudioLos Angeles, CA
Full Time Job
Audio is the medium of the moment - it has become a staple of our everyday lives, as both the number of devices we listen on and the content itself has increased.
While podcasting has certainly generated the most media attention in recent years with behemoth acquisition announcements and celebrity initiatives, the audiobook market is actually 3x the size of the podcasting market and is expected to grow 25% in 2021. New audiobook platforms are emerging, authors like Malcom Gladwell are releasing their books in audiobook format only, social audio is influencing macro marketing trends, and the audiobook space is leading the disruption in traditional publishing.
If you're passionate about the audio medium and/or pushing the limits in digital content innovation,
If you're a maven who lives and breathes social media and thrives on content distribution platforms,
If you're a detail-oriented and organized marketing coordinator/ junior marketer ready to take a leap ahead in your career,
If you strive to legitimately find joy in your work and colleagues and have a great sense of humor…
