Job Description

PRX is looking for someone passionate about audio storytelling and community engagement to run the PRX Podcast Garage’s newest location in Washington, D.C.

The PRX Podcast Garage is a community recording studio, classroom, and event space that supports new voices in podcasting and public media. In 2016, PRX opened the first PRX Podcast Garage in Boston, Massachusetts to support the work of local audio producers and storytellers. The facility now runs more than 100 events and workshops a year - serving over 2,500 participants - as well as a professional recording studio. Most importantly, the Podcast Garage is a welcoming community for new audio makers to get inspired, collaborate, and create.

Now, PRX is opening a second Podcast Garage in D.C. and we’re looking for the right person to bring it to life. We are a unique space in the audio world and this position is too. While you’ll work closely with the Podcast Garage team, there is also a lot of autonomy to imagine and implement ideas. The job is customer-focused ⁠- people come and go throughout the day, so you must be able to provide excellent hospitality. We are also an experimental organization where new ideas come up and change happens quickly, so you must be flexible and excited to contribute to that change. Finally, we are looking for someone who has a demonstrated commitment to equity and inclusivity with a passion for supporting new voices in media.

This role is a full-time position, Wednesday through Sunday, based in the heart of D.C.’s creative community. The Community Manager will report to the Senior Manager of the Podcast Garage and work with remote PRX staff in Boston, Minneapolis, and New York City.

This application closes on Sunday, July 14 at 11:59 p.m. ET.

Public radio is at a moment of tremendous change and promise. PRX is at the epicenter of the audio revolution with a portfolio of exceptional programs including PRI’s The WorldOn Being, The TakeawayReveal, The Moth Radio HourOn Being, This American Life and the Radiotopia podcast network. We believe strong public media is anchored in journalism, strengthened with diverse voices and amplified by innovative technology.

  • Schedule programs that build community, nurture new and underrepresented voices, and raise overall brand awareness of PRX.
