Work with us.
We’re starting to build a team of creative, curious people right now, and we’d love you to join us. We’ve got positions for producers, hosts, reporters, editors, and humans-of-all-trades. Love the idea of City Cast but not sure where you’d fit in? Give us a shout.
City Cast offers competitive pay, great benefits, and a culture of creativity and inclusion. We love our work and want to love our (virtual) workplace too. We value diversity, integrity, kindness, flexibility, and humor. Let’s make something great together—and enjoy doing it.
You’re an unabashed enthusiast for your city. You have your finger on the pulse of your city’s politics, culture, economy, and personality. People ask you what’s happening in town because they know that what you think matters. Maybe you have experience hosting a show— maybe you just have a deep-down feeling that you’d be good at it. Either way, we want to know about you. We’re seeking hosts to be the voice of each City Cast— and we’re wide open about who they might be and how they might sound.
You’re an experienced audio producer—highly creative and highly organized. You’re great at turning tape into vivid stories and interviews. You have experience overseeing complex projects and teams and keeping them all on track, on time, and on budget. You’re an excellent manager—passionate about coaching and cultivating talent. In this role you’ll be in charge of a 3-6 person City Cast team and you’ll shape the vision and daily execution of your City Cast, ensuring that each day’s episode is fresh, relevant, and surprising. You and your team of host, producers, and editors will weave together sound, music, interviews, and news updates to create a daily local news product that will become an essential habit for your neighbors.
We’re looking for creative, resourceful producers who can make each day’s City Cast both delightful and journalistically excellent. You’ll be researching, reporting, booking, writing, editing, and more. You know your way around a microphone, audio recorder, and editing software. You’re a jack-&-jill of all trades and a devout lover of podcasts and your city. You’re excited about the challenge of inventing something new, and learning a ton while doing it.
The word “editor” might be a misnomer— we’re looking for a sort of ”news curator” for each city— someone who is an avid and discerning consumer of local news and can capably write, shape, curate, and tweet a daily City Cast newsletter. You’re a solid, fast writer with a distinctive voice, and killer instincts for what matters most to your community. You want to make your city better through journalism.
We’re looking for reporters who are obsessed with one or two subjects that are critical to their city. Maybe it’s local education. Maybe failing public transportation. Maybe the incredible restaurant scene. We’re looking for local-loving journalists who want to “own” a particular beat, and want to make their city better.
You make order out of chaos. You thrive in fast-paced, creative environments without set rules— and you’re expert at creating nimble processes that make things operate more efficiently. You love the idea of starting something from scratch. You’re a tireless problem-solver who knows how to keep creative people on track.
