Who we are

We’re a few Kiwis shaking up the tech/business podcast world.

Right now, we’re behind some of the most popular business/tech creators around, that have combined audiences in the millions. We take their conversations, and craft them into gems for all to enjoy. You can see some of our customers and content at www.supermix.io

It’s taken us our first year to break-in and build the #1 brand in our niche, and that’s opened up a field of opportunity. Now we need another team member to help us sprint through that field and make the most of it.

We’ve started launching our own shows with some of the biggest names in tech, and that’s just the beginning…

What you’ll do

You’ll be responsible for taking podcast episodes all the way from recording to published. This will mostly involve editing and creating content, but will also require some team coordination and client communication. We’ll train you up on using “Descript” to edit the podcasts, so it’s okay if you don’t have experience with that - so long as you have the skills outlined in the “must-have skills” section.

    • Make all editorial decisions, create all written assets, manage all scheduling

  3. Manage timelines for content
