We are one of the fastest growing podcast & audiobook platforms in Europe and we are now looking for an experienced Audiobook Licensing Manager that can help us accelerate our growth in audiobooks even more. Come and join us on our journey to enrich lives through listening.

This is the role

Podimo was founded in 2019, and initially launched with only a small and curated selection of audiobooks. Now, in 2022, audiobooks are an essential part of the content slate on Podimo, and the catalog of audiobooks is growing steadily across the markets Podimo is currently available in. The Manager of Global Audiobook Licensing will report into the Director of Content Partnerships in the Global Content organization. You’ll be responsible for leading conversations and negotiations with audiobook publishers across all of Podimo’s markets. Podimo is currently available in Denmark, Norway, The Netherlands, Germany, Spain and LATAM, with plans to expand quickly to more markets in Europe and beyond.

Your main responsibilities in this role:

  • Lead conversations and negotiations with publishers across Podimo's markets and in upcoming markets
  • Optimize and standardize audiobook deal structures
  • Ensure the quality of Podimo’s audiobook catalog - including exclusive deals
  • Build strategic partnerships with publishers
  • Secure internal information to key stakeholders on the development of audiobook deal structures, margins and pay-outs
  • Conceptualize new audiobook concepts

This is you

You are able to negotiate and close the best possible agreements for Podimo; you don’t take no for an answer. You also understand and can analyze how Podimo can be the best possible partner for publishers, and you are great at building relationships and strategic partnerships. You are also a profile that thrives in a dynamic start-up environment, where things are changing often and a lot. Last, but not least, you are an amazing colleague who shares valuable information, seeks inclusion and likes to work closely with others across functions.

Experience we’re looking for:

  • You have strong negotiating skills
  • You have industry insights and know you way around the publishing industry - and you might even have experience from either working for a publishing house or an audiobook retailer
  • You are a team player and are open to working with stakeholders across functions and different countries
  • Passionate and knowledgeable about audiobooks and podcasts

Naturally, being passionate and knowledgeable about podcasts, audio content, media, and entertainment is a big plus!

These are the benefits

  • Six month fully paid parental leave for all new parents - no matter how you identify or where in the world you live
  • Learning and personal development opportunities to help you thrive and enrich your skills in a fast-paced creator economy
  • Opportunity to work flexible hours and remote
  • The chance to make an impact at an international company and see your work pay off immediately
  • Delicious lunch with great colleagues.
