We come from diverse backgrounds, brought together by the desire to create amazing experiences for listeners, and a shared belief in working hard, embracing creativity, and supporting one another. At Gimlet, good ideas matter more than titles. People who tackle problems with creative solutions, and who love the energy of a collaborative, team-oriented creative process thrive here. We’re proud to have recently joined the Spotify family with whom we share these values.
The Get Up is Spotify’s new daily morning show - the first of its kind to blend the elements you love about morning drivetime FM-radio with a personalized music playlist. The show is co-hosted by Kat Lazo, Speedy Morman, and Xavier “X” Jernigan. Every weekday, the hosts, alongside a collaborative group of producers and technical directors, serve up news, pop culture, and unique takes on stories about entertainment, music, sports, culture, and everything in between.
We’re hiring a skilled, self-motivated Producer for “The Get Up,” Spotify’s successful, brand new morning show. This person is able to put out strong work on tight deadlines at early morning hours. They have sound editorial judgment, take pride in their work, and have a high attention to detail. They have a problem-solving attitude and an excitement for innovation. The ideal candidate has an interest in news and pop culture. They have a background in audio production and/or daily show production. On a daily basis, they will pitch story ideas, book and arrange interviews, write scripts, and work closely with the show’s hosts during recordings. The Producer will find compelling ways to tell news and pop culture stories, and help to manage The Get Up’s Instagram presence. Listener interaction is an important element of this role; be it via social media or The Get Up’s call-in hotline. In addition, the Producer is someone who is comfortable working early morning hours on a fast-paced show, and is interested in all facets of daily show production. A sense of humor is also encouraged!
