Spotify Science Vs is an award-winning science podcast that takes on critical science and health stories in the news, as well as fads and trends, to tell listeners what’s fact, what’s not — and what’s somewhere in between. We are looking for a U.S.- or Australia-based producer with keen editorial judgment, as well as experience telling rigorously researched and reported science stories, to join our team

Job Type

Spotify Jobs:

  • Permanent

As a producer for Science Vs, you will develop, research, report and produce episodes of the show. You are someone who possesses the ability to read and understand scientific papers — and summarize them for a regular person listener — as well as a background in audio storytelling and science journalism
An appreciation for and a desire to do in-depth research is a must. This is an unusual show in that we often do a deep dive into the science before we begin the reporting and interviewing process. Research is an essential part of the job, and successful candidates will be those who are excited about that work in addition to producing fun, engaging audio stories.

You will also find sources, lead interviews and report in the field where necessary. You will collaborate with the rest of the Science Vs team to structure stories and write scripts.

Other responsibilities include preparing for interviews, cutting and assembling audio using ProTools editing software.

What You’ll Do

  • Pitch and report episodes about science-related topics
  • Do a deep dive into the academic research to find out where the current science stands — and where the sticky points are
  • Work collaboratively with the host, other producers, editors, and engineers
  • Find, pre-interview, and book guests — keeping in mind whose voices the show is elevating and speaking to a diverse range of scientists
  • Arrange for studio recordings and tape syncs
  • Structure and produce episodes in preparation for group edits (preliminary structure with script)
  • Cut tape and assemble mixes
  • Participate in edits for other producers’ episodes
  • Pitch in on research for other episodes where needed and produce teammates in interviews
  • Potential for on-air reporting

Who You Are

  • At least 3 years of experience producing audio for radio or podcasts
  • A strong scientific background and ability to read scientific papers and summarize them in regular-person language
  • Demonstrated ability to work under tight deadlines
  • Ability to stay organized and effectively prioritize responsibilities
  • Proficiency in audio assembly software — preferably ProTools
  • An eye for detail and self-direction

Where You Are

  • This producer will be working West Coast hours, roughly 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. PT or noon to 8 p.m. ET
