Who You'll Work With

You will join our global publishing team and be based in the U.S.—preference on our West Coast, New York, Atlanta, or Washington, D.C. office. 
Our team of editors, designers, and producers is responsible for creating compelling multimedia content that highlights McKinsey’s research, analysis, and insights on the trends shaping global business. 
You will work with an editor/host, as well as other editors, partners, and external talent, to create engaging high-quality shows. While your primary focus will be the flagship McKinsey Podcast series—averaging 100k listeners per episode—you will also work with colleagues to create new shows, streamline offerings, and contribute to other projects, as needed. 

What You'll Do

You will leverage your technical production experience to turn topics of interest into a compelling and cohesive podcast series to our global business audience. This will include developing interview guides with editors and subject matter experts, and ensuring episodes are approved, published, and promoted on schedule.
You will brief and coach podcast guests, organize and execute field recordings, and review recorded material and shape final episodes, adding voice-over elements and sound design. You will also oversee the work of contractors and agency resources.
You will contribute ideas for new series, formats, audio innovations, and techniques for audience development. In this role, it is vital for you to play an active role in the McKinsey media community (e.g., sharing and implementing best practices.).

In addition to submitting your resume and cover letter, please include two business-related samples. In your cover letter, we also welcome your feedback on our podcast offerings and thoughts on what you would prioritize in the role.
