Passionate about podcasts? Here's what we're looking for...

Make industry-leading business podcasts with a passionate, global team.

Lower Street is a podcasting company that works with agencies, consultants, and enterprise companies to make amazing shows. Shows that matter, that make an impact.

We're focused on 2 things:

  1. Making the best podcasts we possibly can, and
  2. Continually learning and improving on what we do - both individually and as a team.

From concept to distribution, we help clients to develop their ideas into fully fledged podcasts. And it's really fun.

What's the gig?

We’re looking for an Audio Engineer to join our Production Team, and will work closely with folks like Harry (CEO) and Alex (Sr. Audio Engineer).

In this role, you’ll be cutting tape and doing sound design work on interview-based podcasts (and beyond).

In some cases, a producer will be working on the show and making editorial calls on the content, and your job will be to finesse those edits, work on pacing, music, and ads, before mixing and mastering.

To be clear, we’re not looking for a human ‘um’ remover, but someone who really wants to get deep into the content they’re working on.

But don't worry, you're not alone. We foster a collaborative culture and work together to make sure everything we produce is the absolute best it can be.

Things you'll do:

  • Editing interview podcasts – sometimes with edit notes, sometimes without.
  • Taking exports from Descript and cleaning up the edits in Pro Tools.
  • Mixing and mastering.
  • Coordinating recordings, audio files, session files, scripts, and documents with the team.
  • Working inside of Pro Tools, iZotope RX, Descript, Ableton, and other tools.

Who exactly are we looking for?

In short, does this sound like you? Someone that is:

  • Creative. You are able to foster and maintain the creative vision of the podcasts at LowerStreet.
  • Communicative. You have excellent written and verbal communication and excel in collaboration with teammates and our hosts.
  • Authentic. You put the people around you at ease and bring your own unique voice to research, writing, and scripting.
  • Adaptable. You thrive when you need to find solutions, make adjustments, and receive feedback. You work efficiently to get the job done by deadlines.
  • Passionate. You love storytelling and connecting business communities through content marketing.

Why you

For this role, you ideally have:

  • Extensive experience editing podcasts.
  • A great ear and an ability to mix and master your own work.
  • The ability to listen to raw tape and pick out the most engaging, important, informative pieces to form a story that educates, inspires, and entertains the audience.
  • The ability to work to deadlines so that shows never miss schedule.
  • A critical eye and a close attention to detail.
  • Amazing communication skills.

Why us

  • Work from anywhere. Your house in the country, a coffee shop in the city, a yurt in the forest -- we don’t mind. As long as you have strong enough wifi.
  • Truly great work culture. We’re a young and small, but established company -- you can make a real impact, but we’re not in the business of micromanagement.
  • Flexible Hours. Outside of ideally having some working overlap with UK working hours, we have a globally distributed, asynchronous team.
  • Generous PTO, sick leave, and public holiday policy. Just throw us some notice and share where you go on holiday!
  • Equipment Budget. Headphones, software, staplers, fax machine (probably not that last one) -- whatever you need to be set up for success.
  • Professional Development Allowance. Courses, conference tickets, books -- we’re invested in you.
  • Planned team retreats in really fun spots. When travel restrictions ease up, we’ll be collaborating and celebrating from time to time in person.
